    Hi All,

    My name is Tony and I live in a small Town in Wiltshire, I've been reading the posts on this Forum for a while now but I've been hiding in the shadows. I'm not starting till next year but I want to get as much practice in as I can, I've got my equipment that I need but I have to save for the car as I've not got one at the moment.

    I've had my business cards and leaflets printed by Vistaprint, I have got a printer but I couldn't make anything really good on it. Also got a sturdy pair of BT Ladders as I'm not a great fan of heights but it gives me the respect that will stop me from doing anything stupid while standing on them. I'm not scared of heights just hitting the floor.

    Anyway I hope you'll help me with all your wisdom in the future and thank you for allowing me to join your forum. Many thanks all

    Tony.:thumbsup:

    Although it'll not be until next year I hope to do leaflet drops and follow up doing door to door as well as getting in touch with local newspapers to run a story and include an advertisement. I already have one or two people that would like to get their windows cleaned by me, I know that work will build up slowly but I'll only be starting by doing a couple of days a week to start with.

    We've got a few window cleaners in my Town but they are hard to get hold of and they have no sign writing on the side of their vehicles, I think between them they share work out between themselves. I've already starting to notice the houses that aren't being cleaned by anyone and may target them first, I've been ill for a long while and want to build the business up slowly if that makes any sense to you. I'm also reading as much information on here as I can, thanks for the welcome Puraclenz.
