    Hi All
    Just wanted to introduce myself, I`m new to the forum and in the process of starting a new window cleaning business, I used to work on the window 15 years ago traditionally and WFP system, But times have changed and any wise words of wisdom would be greatly received.

    Thanks Mark, I totally agree with you, I do have a half decent job but it honestly bores the **** out of me, I`m going no where and no matter how hard I work I have no chance of earning more, and work satisfaction is zero, I`m in a position at the moment to buy a van and WFP system and also have a few contacts within the contract cleaning industry! I`ve always been one of the people who would rather try and fail than think "what if" your advice is invaluable and appreciated and I don`t expect the money to come rolling in but I`m willing to give it a good go!!

    Yep Adams0211 Daylight savings mate. And just like when you started on your first street us old boys roll our eyes and say 'here's another wannabe'

    Welcome John Carter remember it may be summer now, but wait five mins..... if you have ever stood on a street corner and thought 'i dont like this, it's too hot / cold / wet / windy / dark' Then now is the time to quit, if not then good luck to you. :thumbsup:

    Not complaining or rolling my eyes, just seems like a load of new sign ups in a very short period of time. The more the merrier
