    Hello Chaps.
    I’ve not been on for nearly a year. Last summer I got caught up in a load of false allegations at work and spent three months sat at home stressed out. Once the investigation had been completed and I was found to not be involved in the s***e I was accused of I returned to work in November. Only to face “Restructuring” I had to apply for my own job and amazingly I was kept on. All through this period and since last summer I have remained determined to start up as a window cleaning business. I was told last week that we are having another restructure and I am hopefully going to take voluntary redundancy from my employer use that money and the 4k I have saved over the last twelve months to finally get myself up and running in the new year.
    I hope everyone is flat out busy.
    I’ll be pestering you all soon enough with stupid questions.
    Many thanks
    Ian

    Sounds like you are best off out of there. Work is hard to come by in the early days so you will be swapping one stress for another. Don't blow all your cash on the tools, start simple.
