but I think I have my business how I want it.

I will continue to press forward and to improve, I will still spend time canvassing and constantly strive to learn more and progress, but at the beginning of the year my work was here there and everywhere, I wasn't earning what I wanted and I didn't have the set-up I wanted. And I didn't have the experience this year has given me.

I will never have the perfect round, as you can always better your work.

But I am at the point where I'm happy with what I have and going into better seasons I have optimism.

Thanks for the tips and advice guys /emoticons/smile.png

Where abouts you work?

See you've updated your site, I like it.

Well the majority of jobs I have came from me knocking on doors and speaking to the people, offering a free quote.

I know you'll have done this but I honestly cannot fault it.

How long before it's make or break?

That sounds serious cyberpedz. Sorry to hear it. I have only been going a few months, but picking up customers each week...is it difficult down in cornwall or is it that windowcleaning will just not keep your household going, no matter what size your custom base is?

it seems to me my area is quite saturated but also Cornwall not being the best paid area means window clean is on the bottom of many peoples list of things to pay for.

Hopefully the new year will bring in some new work.

Can you diversify a bit ? - maybe offer solar panel cleaning or fascias etc??

Hope it works out cyberpedz.
