Tolu Ilesanmi: Cleaner and Life Artist

We see cleaning not just as a job but as art, as a learning opportunity, a chance to experience the world differently, a chance to clean up our minds and be inspired while cleaning up physical spaces, a chance to move our bodies, a chance to learn humility and be better servant leaders.

Tolu Ilesanmi: Cleaner and Life Artist

“Tolulope Ilesanmi was a cleaner. He left banking in Nigeria and came to Montreal, where he did his MBA and then started a company, Zenith Cleaning.

He said to himself, I will contemplate this thing with awe and curiosity and gratitude until it is done with me.

This beautiful post pays tribute to his remarkable life and spirit. { read more }
