Chris Wright, founder of Whystle, joins us today on the podcast. Chris is an entrepreneur obsessed with learning and relentless personal improvement. Chris is from Indiana, grew up in upstate New York and attended University of South Carolina. After college he had a job with Deloitte and was fortunate to have a few months prior to his official start date. During his time off, Chris started two businesses which was where he knew he wanted to come back to. One of the businesses, which he still co-owns, sells private label men’s accessories thru an Amazon FBA (fulfillment by Amazon). You’ll hear a few of the lessons he learned through this business as we dive through his journey. Chris spent two years as a consultant with Deloitte before he finally nailed down his next company - Whystle. Whystle is an on-demand cleaning service you schedule via an app. Whystle’s goal is to provide simple to book, transparent cleaning services so people know what they were getting, how much they are paying and can get their time back! In our discussion today, Chris discusses his consulting assignments at Deloitte and what made him decide to leave Deloitte. With the demands of being a consultant, working long hours and traveling demands he had no time to maintain a “home”. He first got the idea to start Whystle in the fall of 2018. He thought it would be a great concept for professionals who – like him - lead busy lives so they could take back some of their free time. Chris built his website, got operational, and started Whystle full time in March 2019. They had a successful first year, lots of ups and downs but successful. One year later COVID-19 happens and by end of March 2020 75% of their overall business had to pause services. He discusses the challenges they experienced during this time. Listen to how they overcame the business challenges resulting from COVID-19 pivoted to a new service for commercial property owners, Whystle Disinfection Services. Chris’ goal for Disinfection Services is to help businesses reopen safely and to help create a place where employees and customers are not fearful. He discusses their back to business opening plan and discusses guidelines they have made available on their website for others to use. Chris has made his back to business plan available online including a free 15 minute consultation.
