Handed in my notice at Royal Mail yesterday after 20 years service, so far I'm fully kitted out with a van, wfp, and loads of cloths etc. Got 5000 leaflets,500 business cards, website and a massive smile, I've got 21 people on the books and I've not even started door knocking yet. I'm away on holiday at the moment and chomping at the bit to get back and start knocking on doors, I did bring my diary with me just on the off chance anyone calls and low and behold I had 2 ladies call for jobs today :) thanks to all who have help me with advice on this great forum.

Go for it!!!!... Your Royal Mail experience will help you loads. Your customer focused from the off.... You know about rounds etc. Now it time to create your round, where you want it... When I was a posty I had 644 houses on a bike round and all the politcs of the job kept changing - which did my head in, so, I went to local government and found that Refuse loading was surrounded by the same.... Front line staff always get **** on... A simple good job made differcult by people who have never done in!... Do it your way mate. Get out and about, leaflet drop, word of mouth etc etc, tell people your a x-posty... People like someone they can trust.... Thing about yourself as a customer and what you would want from your window cleaner... Good luck and keep motivated!!!
