    I was wondering how many of you are full time on the glass ? Im part time at the moment but im seriously considering full time cause im sick of working weekends and missing out on family gatherings in my other job. I recon I'd work a 4 day week when possible and obviously depends on weather I know. I think I'd need around 250 houses to achieve a good wage each month. What do you guys think ?

    I only do window cleaning and do it x5 days a week. Earning enough to support my family plus some. In my case fear was the main barrier (what if this / what if that) but once overcome I have never looked back.

    With regards to customer size 250 sounds about right. Personally I have less than that but am fortunate in having some big earners. This has taken graft though mate and am under no illusion that tests and trials will often pop up every now and again. Good luck with it all - whichever route you decide to take:)

    the 4 day week eh- youve the wrong attitude you will fail without a maximum effort . youv got to be in for the 5 days at least or you wont get established .just my opinion, give it your all or stay where you are
