Training Improved Her Career & Income !


I’ve been with my Boston employer as his House Manager for 9 years today!  It’s been a fast 9 years. In this profession the years fly, as you know.

Before this, I was with my Pittsburgh employers for 5 years….where I started after my training with you. It’s been an amazing 14 years–and to this day, I still can hear your words of teaching/training. I doubt there’s a day that’s gone by that my PDI training has not been used.

I have managed 9 multimillion dollar properties in my 14 years and I owe you credit for my training. It is not an easy profession and again my training prepared me not only for the managing of the physical properties but for the care/support/nurturing of the families and pets I have been privileged to oversee.

It seems fitting to thank you on my 9th anniversary and for the PDI program. I could not have done this job without you.

I hope all is good and happy in your life!

Best regards,

When I started cleaning homes 15-17 years ago, I was earning $30K a year. After a few years my salary went to $35K. Then I took your Estate Housekeeping class and started earning $55K. Because of you finding me employment positions (3) and taking your class, (which taught me how to properly care for homes of wealth) I earned an additional $300K then I would have. How can I ever thank you?
The funny thing is, is that I thought I knew everything about caring for homes. I didn’t realize that I didn’t know as much as I thought I did. Not only that, but I learned how to professionally care for the family as well as as their homes.
Being 40 years of age, it was hard for me at times to accept your criticism, but later on I realized that you only had my best interests at heart.
I want to thank you for all of your help over the years and the friendship that grew from it.
