Neil Sanders – Founder & Chief Executive Officer
I started my journey in the cleaning profession at age 16 in my home town of Columbia, MO. The company I worked for at the time focused strictly on recurring maid services in the upscale areas of town. What I loved about it was going into these beautiful homes like none I had ever seen before and being part of helping keep the beauty alive. My time with Columbia Helping Hands (the company I had worked for) ended after two years when I thought I might want to change career paths.
Between working for Columbia Helping Hands and opening ExBode LLC a lot of things happened. I had found my love for tacos, leading me to develop management skills on my way to becoming kitchen manager at the growing taco joint Seoul Taco. Around the same time I had also became a shift lead at a local costume rental shop, Gotcha Costumes. It was a lot of work to handle both but I managed to hustle through the 70 hour work weeks. But when you’re 18 years old, 70 hour weeks aren’t bad.
It was the summer of 2016 when I decided to head to Fayetteville, Arkansas to further my career. I had landed a job at a Qdoba Mexican Eats where they were in the middle of a management transition and they had hired me on to become a future GM. A year later, after trying to push through the noise and help someone else’s company grow I had learned my lesson. No one can take care of customers, employees, or myself the way I can. I evaluated the situation, remembered all the things I loved throughout my past, and April 4th, 2017 I founded ExBode LLC.
Since I opened ExBode that spring, life has been great and my knowledge and outlook on life has changed immensely. I’m more focused than ever. I am seeing people’s lives change on the daily by bringing peace of mind to the household through a clean house. I look forward to growing as a cleaning professional and a business to continually deliver high quality service to the residencies of Northwest Arkansas.
Hannah Mangrum – Co-Owner & Chief Communications Officer
I was dating Neil Sanders, the founder and co-owner of EXBODE LLC when the company first started. At first, I was only moral support for the company. I would help him hand out flyers, and I rode with him all around Northwest Arkansas to find real estate, and apartment management connections. It slowly started a process of me helping him clean houses and apartments. Eventually I quit my job at the donut shop, quit going to college, and started working with Neil full time.
It’s funny, I used to hate cleaning. In fact, I was only going to college so I would never have to clean ever again. I was so tired of having to clean in restaurant and retail jobs. But, it’s different when cleaning a home. I get satisfaction from cleaning someone else’s home. I love to see the difference I can make in someone’s home and life. I don’t view cleaning as “my job,” I see it as what I love to do. It’s fun, entertaining, and downright amazing. I don’t feel stuck in one place for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. My environment is always changing. I’m at a different home each day, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
