In the summer and fall of 2013 Eric Rogers spent five months living at Green Gulch Farm, a Zen meditation center located just outside of San Francisco. At Green Gulch he was a work-exchange volunteer—working and following the daily meditation schedule in exchange for room and board.
Eric spent his days working as a housekeeper, quietly cleaning and tidying. He enjoyed the work, and loved the fact that he and his team used only natural products to clean.
When he returned home he began thinking about starting his own eco-friendly cleaning business. After working at a local cleaning service for a few months, he decided to go off on his own. Eric built a strong reputation as a cleaner, and within a year had a stable of regular clients. In the time since, Eric has grown the business to include a team of eight part-time and full-time cleaners. With their help White Lotus has become the premier home cleaning service in the Twin Cities.
