    So your average price is £7.24 a clean?

    What If you charged a little more per customer you would already be grossing £1500 surely?

    I find motivation comes and goes and its hard to stay focussed all the time. Work in the morning and canvass in the afternoon and don't go home every day till you have a new customer. Make it an unbreakable rule.

    That is a spot on bit of advise.

    Today I have seen 3 windys in the area around my work, and I wondered if they all canvas or not.

    Don't want to be stereo typing but they didn't look like the sort, heard one of them moaning about business and i get the feeling they are the sort that hope it comes in and if it doesn't they get anoyed lol

    You don’t sound lazy, might be de-motivated a little - you need 37% increase overall, on your average price that’s about £2.68, but you need to adjust your figure for each price that is different to the percentage, its a hike percentage wise, but because it a small cash amount its possible.

    I would expect most of your customers are reasonable people and it would be fairly straight forwards and quick to reduce that £400 gap to the £1,500 by £200 just by talking to your customers.

    H I'm in the same boat mate. I've lost a lot of motivation in the last two months. I was flying at first and had targets I'd set myself which I was hitting and work was coming in fine.

    Then my wife started telling me that we where falling behind on bills and as soon as this happened I need an extra £1500 a month now so instead of the little targets I had now It's turned into one big problem. Which has knocked my motivation and it's taken the passion and adventure out of it and replaced it with anxiousness and a sense of dread.

    no my prices are fine.. am happy with £7.24 average cos to be honest my average price is REALLY over £8.00

    its only £7.24 because 25% of my jobs are fronts only @ £4 / £5 which are more worth doing for this price then a full house :)

    so my prices are pretty good..

    theirs a few bad priced jobs when i started out ... but

    if i had 250 customers... i could see myself making around the £2,000 a month so its priced pretty good in my eyes :)

    am up north aswell :)
