Derek Christian coaches Julie Vincent of Coastal Clean on her new website’s design

Julie Vincent and Katie Postema of Coastal Clean in SW Michigan were among 17 cleaning business owners who attendedFoundations of Success earlier this year in Charleston, SC. This yearly event is presented by Tom Stewart, Derek Christian, and Liz Trotter of Cleaning Business Builders. A full week of seclusion in a beachfront mansion enables cleaning business owners to dig deep into their essential systems as they work through 22 classes and workshops. It’s a business course unlike anything else in the industry.

In this Foundations Ride Along segment, CBB gives you a glimpse into the six months of follow up coaching that each Foundations alumnus gets as part of the program. The video below is the first of a series. In this session Derek Christian speaks with Julie Vincent and reviews progress on the new Coastal Clean website.

The next Foundations of Success event will be held March 9-16, 2019 on the Isle of Palms near Charleston, SC. To learn more or to register, visit
