First of all, let me introduce myself and give you a coles notes version of how this new business venture came to be.
I’m Christie Denomme, the owner of Lemon Life Housekeeping.
I’ve been working in the residential cleaning industry independently for more than 10 years. During college and university, it was a flexible gig that I could work around an ever-changing class schedule and once I entered the job market, I found myself unable to give up my wonderful clients.
Over the last year, while balancing a 9 to 5 job in the marketing industry with maintaining my housekeeping clients, I started noticing a shift in my career ambitions. I was no longer dreaming of climbing the corporate ladder but rather envisioning a future where I owned my time and had more control over when and where I worked. Not to mention, how strongly I struggled with being strapped to a desk 40 hours a week!
So, along with the support of my hubby and a few close friends, I took a leap of faith and walked away from the ‘perfect’ job to start my own business – and Lemon Life Housekeeping was born.
But work-life aside, and for the sake of getting a little more personal, here are a few of my other loves and passions: being a sibling to an incredible guy with special needs, attending local #YQG festivals and events, galavanting around our sister-city Detroit, traveling to the Netherlands to visit family, sampling locally made craft beer and wine and binging more often than I should on a good Netflix marathon (hello, Outlander!).
Back to why you’re here visiting this page, and most importantly, I thrive on knowing that my work has a direct positive impact on others’ lives. I get an incredible sense of satisfaction when I leave a freshly cleaned home knowing that the members of that household won’t have to stress over chores but rather will have extra time to enjoy each other and the hobbies that are most important to them.
