Well, you need to be working very hard.

Were any of the children planned? You seem to be one of the motivated types, opposite of me it seems hehe.

I'm 25 and married and no children for us for a while at least, I hope.

John Lee Hooker did a song that went, "if it wasnt for bad luck, i wouldnt have no luck at all". I used to think it could have been written for me, but not any more. You will be the same too, just get out there canvassing and stay positive!. :)

congrats mate. nothing like a bit of pressure to get you motivated!

we've just started canvassing (moved to New area and going to build some up here), it ain't easy door knocking again, but be polite, look the part, and keep going, and it will soon add up.

Keep going young man!... You will build up a round!... Quicker now that you have more capacity to do it!... Door Knock, Leaflet Drop, Facebook whatever.......... I started June/July last year and I am now up to 130ish customers. I was working full time and window cleaning and I made myself redundant because the PAYE job was doing my head in. Set yaself a few targets and work hard and you will get where you want to be!..... People need a Window Cleaner!!!!!!

Should have a nice round put together in 9 months time, you might need to get down the dole and ask for a little help, not just money but if they see your motivated then they will put you in touch with business link and a business mentor, keep coming on here as well and we all cheer you on. Get loads of business cards done and hand them out to every one you meet. Tell existing customers you have another nipper on the way and they like that cost they see your a family guy and more inclined to recommend to their friends
