    It just shows that when people moan that it's not possible and life is shite just get off your **** and do it
    I haven't gone from driving last june for a living to getting back on the glass and making a couple of grand a month in 6 months by sitting at home watching jeremy kyle and was even driving 40 hrs a week and then cleaning windows around my shifts
    If you want it go get it

    90% of it is mental. People are conditioned to believing it isnt possible, society tells us this from an early age, we go to school, go to uni, get a "job" have kids, mortgage, retire, die.


    Like this guy says in this video, you take a leap of faith and then suddenly as you go through the struggles you kind of open your eyes and see that its possible, you really can create what you want and when you start to realise that you become a different person.

    Philosophical it may be but before i started this journey into self employed i had no hope, i was really depressed and fed up and although im still struggling juggling a part time job with windows my self confidence is slowly growing with each customer i add to my round however slowly it may be.

    Today i got my 50th customer since starting last november, and for the first time these last few weeks im really starting to believe myself when i said i could get 100 customers to replace my full time employment then go on to hit 200 by the end of the year and earn more money than i ever have and who knows where that will take me in the future, i dont believe my long term future is working solo doing windows but i do believe its as an entrepeneur, its very hard work and stressfull but i actually feel alive.

    waffle over lol
