JoAnn Goodhope is jumping into business ownership, partnering with her
best friend Cindy Fields to take over The Cleaning Authority in Orlando,
Florida. JoAnn has spent her career doing everything from building custom
homes to working as the assistant director of student life at a university.
While working these jobs, JoAnn always admired her friend Cindy’s
entrepreneurship with her The Cleaning Authority office in Gaithersburg,
Maryland. “Cindy has successfully run the business for over 20 years
and always encouraged me to get involved with a similar business path,”
When JoAnn learned that the location in the Orlando area was potentially
closing, she took the chance to get involved with the business and take
over The Cleaning Authority to save jobs from being lost in the community.
“I knew it was time to take advantage of the connection and pursue
the business,” she says.
JoAnn believes her vast job experience will help her as she takes over
the business, “I think getting involved with franchising is a good
fit for me because I can adhere to different kinds of systems but am able
to use previous experience to strengthen my innovation as a business owner,” she says.
JoAnn is excited to fulfill her dream of business ownership alongside her friend.
