Meet Juliet Pocali, our CEO
So passionate about the world of entrepreneurship, Juliet Pocali Tenaglia made a quick decision to leave her stable, corporate job in order to fulfill her dream of becoming a successful business owner. Despite other people’s opinions that she needed to “stay in the corporate world and just start a little business on the side”, she knew she had to fulfill what her heart was yearning for.
As is the case with so many entrepreneurs, Juliet’s journey to launch a business began when a “safe” job suddenly dissolved. Having watched a friend build a similar cleaning business in Florida, she reached out to learn more and quickly found her thoughts consumed with ideas for her own cleaning business. Juliet had many well-meaning friends and family encouraging her to get back into corporate and trying to convince her that being an employee would be a safer route than being an entrepreneur, but her mind and heart kept reminding her that running her own full-time business was what she was truly meant to do. Now, nearly seven years later, Juliet runs one of the most successful cleaning companies on Long Island!
