    image.jpeg Hey Guys, FINEST cleaning here.
    I'm cleaning windows for almost a month now.
    Started with:
    cheap £7 window cleaning set from Amazon.
    5m Harris pole.
    10 blue microfiber cloths
    Water bucket and side bucket
    Fairy, vinegar and HG liquid
    Around £50 investment.

    It took me One week to prepare myself mentally
    And one week to order the equip.
    Then at noon I went out and knocked on doors cleaning windows.
    First day 32£ in 4hours
    Second day £84 in 7hours

    I've never cleaned Windows before and didnt practice at home. I just went out and did it.
    I was charging from 3£ to 15£ for the front.
    I only did domestic houses.

    Time improving I got business cards, and better equipment.

    I'm now looking to buy leaflets and work Attire to present myself in affluent areas where I can get more money.

    You have no excuses not to start and not to make money and grow. Every one can do this with no experience.

    Least I earn when going out is £10 an hour.. Knowing I'm a blood immigrant they just worked for McDonalds.

    Thank you Dun, I appreciate that!
    I do have a drivers Licence but don't have a car yet. This is my only income job and I'm all about making it to support my family.

    No problem. None other than don't go with a crappy hosting service that offers some website builder tool.

    I would suggest going with me cleanershost.com but of course I am biased! To be honest though I am stacked for the next month or two. What I use for the forums and the sites I host would be overkill for just one site.
