Course Creator

Ashley Mackintosh

Industry Expert

I started my own business over 25 years ago, and since then I've diversified into a wide range of exterior cleaning services. I have gained a lot of experience helping others to start their own business via 1-2-1 sessions, but also through my YouTube channel and Podcast which also share lots of tips and advice. Now I have condensed all my business know how into one convenient place so that others can get the best out of their own business, to achieve the self employed lifestyle they've always wanted!
