    this morning i was asked to go and clean someones windows at 1pm,

    i went and knocked on the wrong door by mistake and said sorry think i have the wrong house, lady said its ok we need a window cleaner, ended up with 2 new jobs, plus 2 weeks ago 3 other houses in the same street,

    so i have 5 houses and dont even need to move my van.....

    they all said other window cleaner is a alcholic and does it when he likes.

    we are hoping it is just bad luck to start out with, as we are just starting up it seems like a waste of time. we know that eventually we will get there just need to stick with it. could it be anything to do with it being in london and too much competition arround?
