A founder of Miracles@Work of Stonington, Connecticut, a window cleaning and property care company, and Adams and Adams Building Services, Inc., a commercial janitorial services company based in Enfield, Connecticut. A self-taught businessman, he started at the bottom and in slightly more than a decade rose to receive the Hartford, CT Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Leader of the Year Award. His company was also named to the Springfield, MA Chamber’s Fabulous 50 list of leading privately held companies two years in a row.
During a 15-year career as an Air Traffic Controller with the Federal Aviation Administration, John often dreamed of starting his own business. In August of 1981, President Reagan fired the air traffic controllers who had gone on strike that summer—including John Adams. That is when John launched Adams and Adams Building Services which grew to over $3.5 million when he sold it in 1996 to follow his passion of helping others discover Miracles at Work through his 10 Principles of Upside-Down Thinking and 10 Practices of Business Success found in his book: Miracles at Work: Building Your Business from the Soul up.
In 2014 John started a new venture, Miracles@Work: Really Clean Windows, to put his talents and philosophy of business development back into action. John is a world traveler and sailor who likes to write about his adventures exploring the cultures of the world on a shoestring.

WOW, WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE YOUR WINDOW CLEANING MADE! JOHN I'M NOT JUST SAYING THIS - IT IS TRUE…. EVEN NOW A FEW WEEKS LATER THEY STILL LOOK SPARKLY CLEAN!
We are enjoying the sparkling windows.
I am so very pleased with the job that John did on my windows. They were in great need of cleaning and now they all glisten. He was efficient, thorough, and professional at all times. His attention to detail is extraordinary. I will certainly use his services in the future.
John everything looks fabulous as always! Thanks so much for volunteering your time to do our windows.
John did a great job cleaning our windows. It was an especially tedious job as all the windows had 12 over 12 panes, inside and out. John was professional, efficient and gave us a very fair price. We would highly recommend Adams & Associates
John did a meticulous and beautiful job on a challenging set of small pane windows with storms and screens at our riverside offices. The time and care he took were truly extraordinary and surpassed our expectations by far. I highly recommend him and Adams & Associates.
Hey John Adams, you are truly a miracle at work! The windows you cleaned in our home never looked so good, it’s like you turned a light on! Besides doing a fantastic job, I was impressed by how carefully you set up and broke down your cleaning area, as if it were your own home. So glad we found you. I know it sounds hokey, but you really were clean, kind, courteous and cordial! Thanks for a great job.
What a beautiful job he did. He helped me rehang the curtains and left everything back to normal.
I can't tell you how pleased we have been with the window cleaning we've had done by Adams & Associates the past three years. The work is done beautifully and efficiently, and our home and belongings are treated with care during the process. And our project is no "piece of cake" with many windows and screens, two floors, hard to reach areas, etc. It's such a joy to be looking through clean windows and screens, and such a relief to have a reliable firm to do this work for us!
