    It felt strange canvassing again but didn't take long to get into the swing of thing.
    I've learnt a lot from last time round so wont be making the same mistakes twice.
    Have also been in touch with Whizz-Bizz would love to get them involve have heard great things about them.

    I think wizzbizz is good but why would you pay them if you are canvassing well by yourself? ?

    good point daveyboy1, i'm going to build up the core business but I will get to a point where I just want to run the business(clean the windows) and not canvass this will be when I bring in a company to canvas for me.
    Anyway I'm going to pop out for another hour and see what I can pick up, always get a bit nervous thinking about it.

    just got back weather not great cold and windy so scouted out a few areas to hit next week, also started the web site and got the ball rolling on designing some flyers. i feel as long as im doing something positive as regards building the business it will keep me motivated.
    dave your right its just a means to an end and its temporary the quicker you get on with it the quicker it'll be over.
    Gav you get to smokey joes much?
