When it comes to attitude, the young entrepreneur truly embodies everything 10X stands for.
“You have to remain determined to succeed,” Arendse says on the topic of business mindset. “And you have to be willing to walk the extra mile,” he adds, doubling down on his commitment.
Additionally, Lyndon shares how he has always been inspired by cleaning, but also his father, who is currently a firefighter.
“Both these passions culminated into the idea of having my own business,” he explains. “So, I saved up to purchase my own pressure washer.”
