    Just got in from knocking on the doors in a private estate of 16 massive houses. First one said yes to a quote of 32 pounds, all large windows and 3 door patio door, thought was a little over priced but grate. On to the next same again 32 pounds! Turns out all house the same all said yes all 32 pounds each!! That's £512 every 5 weeks but here's my problem, I'm going to have to give my full time job in at this rate to fit them in with what I all ready got!!! How do I tell her in doors?

    would you be able to do the cleans on your days off, till you built up a big enough round?

    Lol thanks for the comments lads. It's a numbers game I planned to just start a small round I could do on my day off in the week, after work a few evenings in week and every other weekend over a 6 week rota. So on paper my books full. In 6 weeks I make 1500 pounds as a second job taxed heavily. So problem I got is, carry on the way things are going and go full time on the ladder self employed and build a round that pays me the same a week I'm on at work or just carry on part time? I can see a good living coming but just worried about taking the plunge! I'd be better off tax wise (yes I declare my windy job as a second income!!) but never been self employed before, what's your take lads is it really greener on the other side? GF

    Take someone on part time? You won't make as much money but you'll be doing less. Definitely a numbers game!
