    29 shifts left at work, gone are holiday pay, guaranteed pay in bank every week. I have been employed all my adult life 30 yrs so this is a massive step, I'm 100% doing it but still have niggles at the back of my head, but guess this is natural, just now I make before tax and ni 1190 quid, I will have 1405quids worth of work per month when I start cleaning full-time so if I get all my work done I should be quids in and hopefully my work will grow

    When you first started up on your own, how much income did you have a month, I'm going to have 1405 pounds every 4 weeks assuming I get it all done

    You'll be fine, you're already earning more than you are in your job. The only way is up and as you gain experience you'll get faster and pick up more work.

    I remember when I left my job seventeen years ago, I was really nervous but looking back it was the best thing I ever did.

    I know what you mean, it's frightening leaving the security of a regular inve behind but be confident in your own abilities and take what you've done do far as inspiration. You can do it, you've already proved that, so go for it and leave the doubts behind.

    You'll look back in a couple of months and wonder what you were ever worried about!
