WHAT IS YOUR ORGANIZATION'S UNIQUE STORY, WHY ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT IT?
Brittany Whatley: I've always had a knack for cleaning. It's just something that comes naturally to me even when I was a kid, I was a child and my parents didn't have to tell go clean up your room. I just would do it. I would clean up my sister's room, I would clean up their rooms. It's just something that I would do because I understood even at that young age that everything has its own place. I love for things to look nice and I love for things to smell good. Like even when I would visit relatives, I would reorganize my cousin's closet full of toys and clothes. Just because that was something that I realized that brought a calmness to me even if I didn't have the words at that age. I knew like it was very therapeutic for me. My first job in high school, it was during the summer time at the local university, I cleaned the dorms, I did that for four summers straight. And even after I graduated college, once I started working full time. I realized that I wasn't doing something that I could see myself doing making a living off of for forever. And I started writing down jotting down things that comes naturally to me and cleaning was at the top of the list. So the following year I decided to turn that thought into a reality and I came up with the name and I got a logo made and I started pursuing be clean as a side hustle. I did that for a couple of years and then once I moved here, I started taking it more seriously. That was around 2018. And so I started putting more into it, telling more people about it. And then 2019, it hit me that I was like, I can do this full time. So I decided that the following year, which was 2020, that I would quit my job. So I did August 31 I left my job and I started pursuing be clean full time. And honestly, it's one of the like bravest and best decisions I've ever made because it's something that I truly, truly believe in. It's something I'm very passionate about, it's something that I have a love for. And so in 2021 I'm just ready to elevate and expand and for more people to learn about BeeKlean.
