    Hi guys

    Thought I'd introduce myself on here. Been lurking about for around a month reading as much as possible.

    Bit about me. I currently have a full time job which is on a shift basis 4 days on 4 days off. This is my main occupation and will continue to do this.

    I am looking to start window cleaning 2 days a week. Was thinking trad bottoms and wfp tops and first cleans with backpack or trolley. I'll be buying water.

    I'm london based. Have 0 clients as of yet and no gear at all.

    Do you guys think my above approach seems ok?

    Looking to earn around £1000 a month which I think is doable. Agree??

    Wouldn't mind a point in the right direction on wfp and trad gear though to b honest.

    Many thanks guys.

    Great forum by the way!!!

    Yep fireman. How did you guess.

    Sorry have to disagree mate, it's not like that at all. I don't mind walking before I can run hence why I'm reading these forums for proper advice and guidance. Bit like you contacting a fire station and asking them to show you how they do things correctly. Don't want a barny on my first thread either I'm just saying don't tar us all with the same brush dude. I appreciate your input though thankyou.

    Yea that's great I am about 3 minutes from Charlton so this is great.
