Meet Kane Hammontree of LA Window Cleaners & More and Is The Secret Gold

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kane Hammontree.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Kane. So, let’s start at the beginning, and we can move on from there.
I lived in Canada majority of my life, up until I was 18 years old. When I was 18 years old, I decided to save a bunch of money and move somewhere that I could go after my full potential. I moved to Los Angeles when I was 18. It was pretty tough to start off. I tried starting a cleaning business and wasn’t successful. I ran out of money fast and needed a job. So I started working full time. I worked for someone else full time for a year.

After that, I had saved a good amount of money and decided to quit and go ahead a start a business of my own. That was always my goal. So I quit my full-time job and tried to start a real estate investing business. That went downhill real fast, as I didn’t properly prepare for everything that was needed to start that business. All the expenses and other stuff that I was missing to make it lucrative. So within one month, I had burned through all my savings over $10,000. At this point, I was not ready to give up on my dream of starting a successful business.

With no money left in my account and about $1000 in credit card space. I bought all the equipment needed to start a window cleaning business and started going door to door finding clients. At this point, it was vital that I survived and made the business profitable. I ended up closing a few thousand in work that month and every dollar of profit I put back into the business, I increased the marketing, I bought new equipment to help for bigger jobs.

Within three months of starting the window cleaning business I had four guys working for me, and we were doing over $30,000 in revenue a month. The first year of owning the business I did well over six figures in income, and this year I plan to double that. I have run into one slow patch with the business and figured out why it was slow fast and made sure that never happened again. In the meantime, I have invested majority of my profits into new businesses.

I now partner with a solar company, I have to team of salesmen, who sell solar door to door. It’s very successful now. I also have a skin care product that is being launched on April 1st, 2019. Things are going very well now. The window cleaning business now has seven people working for it and very profitable. We are working are franchising the business.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
When I was young things were hard, my mother, unfortunately, was an alcoholic my whole life. So things were unpredictable at the house. When I was 15 I went into foster care for a year, and things got tough, I ended up getting addicted to drugs until I was 18.

Getting to LA, I attempted to start two businesses, and they both failed dramatically. I lost all of my money and had to start from scratch again.

The biggest obstacle I ran into with my window cleaning business was, all of a sudden things slowed down dramatically, my expenses were extremely high, and I had no work coming in. I had no idea what to do. We almost went bankrupt.
