Memphians Tresa Triplett and her fiancee, Lezerrik Massey, are aiming to broaden their horizon, aiming to maximize their potential, aiming to, well, have what is shaping up to be a Texas-size entrepreneurial impact in the foreseeable future.
Owners of Memphis-based KleanPro Enterprise, an established licensed, bonded, and insured cleaning company that has become a fixture throughout and the Shelby-Metro area, Triplett and Massey not only are destined to enhance their love life, but both are devising ways to expand what is starting to emerge as one of the region’s finest up-and-coming cleaning services.
“We enjoy the freedom it provides us and the ability to control our destiny,” Triplett, the company’s president of daily operations, said during a recent interview with longtime journalist Andre Johnson.
Now after implementing the essential steps and prerequisites such as attend an assortment of job fairs and training classes, which enabled the couple to obtain their certification, Triplett and Massey now have been afforded the luxury of putting their entrepreneurial talents on display in a variety of Mid-South-area establishments, most notably in dealerships and other sizable facilities.
Given KleanPro Enterprise’s continuous success in recent months, it’s safe to assume that Triplett and Massey are making good on their company’s mission, which includes controlling their destiny, a trend by which they hope will translate into success in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
“Our main focus now is to build our Dallas office into a six figure or more company like we did our Memphis location,” Triplett, a Memphis Hillcrest High graduate, said.
In addition to erecting a KleanPro Enterprise facility in Texas in the near future, Triplett and Massey also has started a mentoring program for Mid-South-area youths and young adults, something that figures to inspire youngsters to develop the mindset to become business-minded, to broaden their horizon, to maximize their potential, to, well, perhaps even have a Texas-size impact — much like these two love birds.
In essence, aside from routinely keeping facilities clean and appealing to consumers, Triplett said what she deems most intriguing with regards to being a business owner is the passion for what she and Massey do will greatly inspire others who are unsure about starting a business to take those necessary leaps of faith.
In a nutshell, delving off into an entrepreneurial venture is a risk worth taking, Triplett suggests.
That is, of course, if aspiring entrepreneurs are willing to exercise their faith as Triplett and Massey have done.
“We have also kept God first in everything we do and we feed off of each others’ strengths,” Triplett said. “This business is important to us because a lot of people want to be successful in life but are unsure if they can do it. We want them to know if someone like us can start with nothing in this business making 400 a month and in a few years changes that to 6 figures a year, then anyone who believes in themselves and willing to put in the hard work can as well.”
Next up for the couple will be taking their entrepreneurial talents to Texas where, according to many, they do things big there.
“My fiancee is my biggest supporter,” Massey, a Memphis Whitehaven High graduate and the company’s CEO, said.
Spoken like a man who not only embraces the notion of what it means to esteem his mate, but one who, like his better half, strives daily to broaden his horizon, maximizes his potential, and, well, one who’s aiming to have a Texas-size entrepreneurial impact in the foreseeable future.
