The underdog success story of one of today's most inspiring young entrepreneurs, who made it big not in Silicon Valley, but by putting a new twist on one of the least glamorous industries.
Kristen Hadeed launched Student Maid, a cleaning company that hires only students, when she was a junior at the University of Florida in 2009. It has since grown into a company that has employed hundreds of students, and has been widely recognized for its industry-leading retention rate and its culture of trust, accountability, and empowerment. Hadeed now spends much of her time helping organizations across the country improve their own workplace cultures. Her TED Talk has received more than 2 million hits and her company has been featured by national media outlets. This is her first book. She lives in Gainesville, Florida.
