    Hi ive just bought over a w/c round after working it for a couple of months. Very excited to finally be my own boss and looking forward to expanding at the ripe old age of 40 !!! :)
  2. Hi
    Welcome - good luck.
    I started a few months ago at 40 after 20 years in an office.

    thank you
  6. Kars,
    Yeah, from scratch.
    built a WFP system in my van and just kept posting leaflets. It has been slow going but that is mainly my fault.
    This is my first week of knocking on doors so hopefully it will pick up.
    It feels good to be out on my own but it's just the canvassing I hate, as do we all!

    I think canvassing is the hardest bit and second clean funny enough I think have I done a good enough job on the first clean or are they going to cancel after the few cancel you just get over it.

    hey kars, my husband is getting into the business, too. But it's not active yet. He says that he's waiting for the van or something.
