    Talk about gutted, I have been going on gumtree keeping an eye out for any rounds for sale.
    Well I just missed out on £1000 of work, established round!!

    All because of the Easter hols, i didnt get on there that night :-(

    And as work goes it was cheap only 3x as he had injured his leg needed quick sale

    Oh well, keep looking!!

    Sometimes that's a good thing as you could have spent out £3000 for rubbish work. ;)

    I would of got the guy i now know down here to check it out for me. He's been a window cleaner 26 years and bought lots over the years, so would have trusted his judgement. All his work is really well priced.

    But yes 3K is a lot still to pay out.

    I bet if you spent 3 hours a day knocking doors for 1 month instead you could pick up more than 1k of first cleans. I know I could but after saying that I'm rather good at my job and probably do that in the first week :rolleyes:

    Always worth having a natter with your existing/new customers like I did this afternoon. Make friends with satisfied customers and you will be surprised how much extra work they will generate for you too. ;)
