    It certainly is. And it fits in so well around the family and my wife's business. I was speaking to an ex colleague the other day and said that, even after this short time, I don't think I could ever work for someone again.

    The company I have worked for since I left school has just shut down so I have decided to take the plunge a long coming. All ways said I wanted to do window cleaning but nether the right time, as my wife has opened her own estate agency I have taken up the slack at home with the kids etc
    so as Adams0211 said about fitting round wife's business I'm hoping I've making the right choice

    cane the marketing -EVERY day . even if you cannot get round everyone who enquires immediately,long as uve written down their details [Lay notepads in your car, by your bed, in the lounge,each with a pen nearby , you will get to them all very shortly . believe in yourself

    I think it ruins you as an employee. Once you've had a taste you'll never go back,and even if you do, you'll always be looking to go self employed again.
