2 things that i have learnt annoy me about window cleaning 1. Before this job i was used to getting up about 6:30-7:00 and going to work shorly after, nowadays i still rise about 7 as im just used to it but i dont leave the house to start domestic whilst about 8:45 (aim to get to the first one at 9am) Does anyone start much earlier than 9 btw and how do you get on? ive always felt a bit intrusive before then and quite often wake people up at that time. 2. Paperwork/ texting cuties, chasing payments, printing stuff off, sorting van out, facebook, website etc etc. Lost count of the hours i spend on an evening fecking about. I know its hard being self employed but its getting annoying messing about with work related stuff all evening. So, i had the clever idea of doing all the sorting out on a morning. And it works much better! been doing it for a week or so now and it feels like ive got some time back. I get a good hour or more on a morning to sort everything out, i created a list of daily tasks so i just tick it off. Mark yesterdays jobs as done along with payments, check whos paid, remind non payers, check email, text everyone for gates, basically keep on top of everything. The only thing i do now after i come home from work is put the van tank on fill and put battery on charge if needed, not one thought of work till the next day. How do you guys go about all the extra bits and pieces we have to do? do you find it a chore? or do you like the constant work. Im trying to treat this job like a 9-5, or a 7-3 in my case, be more organised and effective with time.
