    Hi everyone,

    Got back late last ***ht, equipment looks good just tried it out this morning. Took me some getting used to and I will still need alot of practice, just trial and error at the moment really. As people have said I will certainly need a longer hose, the brush isnt the greatest but does the job at the moment.

    Do need to clean the actual tank though as the inside is not the cleanest.

    Off to look for a van tomorrow!

    Radio advertising is more for product/brand awareness.The best and quickest way to grow a business is either buy work(expensive) or knock doors (cheap)
    Gleam I would recommend the Gardiner superlite brushes the monofiliment with white bristles is top brush if you do any thing get a decent brush it the one thing that will really make life easy for you and earn you money

    hi been sitting at home not doing much should be out looking for work like last week its hard trying to motivate myself into canvassing and looking for work maybe it is because i still got money from last week when i worked hard, why do i have this fear on knocking on doors maybe cause of the no answer or maybe i am finding it hard to swallow my pride hope i feel brave soon, I have designed my own uniform as well, shouldnt be this way[hr]
