    Just wondered how you guys view yourselves, do you have a round or is it your business?

    For me I see it as my business and act as such. I see guys all the time walking round cleaning windows with Liverpool shirts on and tracksuit bottoms but the way I see it, if I phoned an electrician or a plumber and they turned up to my house in a tracksuit in their Nissan Micra. I wouldn't care what quote they gave me I naturally wouldn't want them working for me. I try and put a professional image to my business and see it as an asset for my family in as much a way as I see my home. I understand that some people just do it to earn a living and wouldn't employ or invest thousands into equipment and advertising and that's fine in my eyes, we all do it for different reason. I'm just interested in how people see their work?

    I see it as a job/business, I wear logo'd cloths and try to look smart but won't get anal about it. Virtually all domestic and don't do huge commercial jobs so my stilo will do the job for now.

    I see it as my business, I have a uniform, tidy van and am in the process at the moment of a large business over hall including new business cards, sign-writing on my van and a promotional campaign to kick things off again.

    I'd never wear an LFC shirt or tracky bottoms or shorts.
    Ooof that would be awful.
     
  6. What about wellies?? If you put a logo on them is that ok???
    Definitely a business. Soon as I get enough of it I'll be employing someone else to do it. Don't get me wrong I love working outside and love the flexibility but cleaning windows is repetitive not very challenging and very boring.
