    It's harder to build a round in winter but the customers you get will usually be good ones
    Just get out there and do it

    I started in early November in a very harsh year and still managed to make it work, have to dedicate more weekends to canvassing though as week evenings are too dark in winter.

    A little tough. But I had just come back from travelling so getting back into a work ethic was always going to be hard.
    It beat applying for jobs and sitting in interviews with shirt and tie any day though!
