    I think a lot will depend on various factors such as:How many windies already work that area,prices your quoting,your selling skills etc.
    Keep it up mate.

    Someone asked that before I think you will be surprised to find allot of moderate figures, it really does just take time to build a round, there is no short cuts. I currently have a round of 700 customers which has taken me 5 years to build, but here is what my first 12 months were like. This was while I was working 6 days a week in a shop.

    month - number of customers - total sales
    -----------------------------------------
    1 - 49 - £311
    2 - 69 - £426
    3 - 78 - £538
    4 - 74 - £535
    5 - 72 - £500
    6 - 77 - £520
    7 - 72 - £500
    8 - 90 - £601
    9 - 72 - £500
    10 - 106 - £670
    11 - 109 - £720
    12 - 124 - £820

    The figures some times show drops, because this is the number of customers that I have completed and that have paid me in that month.

    So hopefully you see that you are on the right path, and if you keep at it, you will get to were you want to be.

    We all started at the bottom, well most anyway.

    what you got to remember is that a lot of wc wil say they dont have any work for less than £10, and make £300 a day, yet these are the one who use Swear word!py poles bodged gear, and are always moaing that they are skint, there is a few near me like that

    a perfect example is yesterday, me and a helper worked from 9 am to 4 pm, did 14 caravan windows, (about 7 windows each) and then did 38 houses, some small bungys, some front only, most all 2/3 bed compact work
