    Keith Kalfas is a clever guy
    If you watch his vids he was destitute and didn't know where the next meal was coming from and now has a very successful business through hard graft and bullshit

    i'd gone through three months of hardship before i began to feel i was pulling in enough to support my family. damn those were hard, chugging along, with a new business, im at the point where good advice will make sure i grow in the right direction, rather than becoming a slave to any kind of mentality that is easily adopted.

    still, tugging a trolley, i know im not yet doing it the easy way, but am seeing growth in my business. this growth is owed to equipment i was able to invest in and a more concentrated focus on my conduct and mentality, rather than just hoping to walk through it, ive spend countless hours researching. its something i do in my spare time. unlocking my potentials through the absorption of knowledge. i dont just do it with window cleaning, i research so many subjects of a nature, a lot of which would seem ridiculous and/or controversial to many...

    I am a great believer that knowledge is power
    I am always looking at various things on the net
    As for still tugging a trolley i have been in this game since 1991 and only last june went water fed
    A backpack and several drums in my car is what i still use but now make my own water and crack it out daily
    A van will be coming when i get back from the villa in mercia in mid august but to be honest i am thinking of staying with the backpack but making life easier by installing a tank to fill the backpack with using a bilge pump
    I personally think there are too many access issues round here to warrant the outlay for a diy system (i would make it myself rather than pay someone to do what i can competently do)
    Plus i have an interest in getting into softwash and pressure washing so space will be at a premium in the van as i will need a second tank and room for pressure washer etc
    I believe you have to be obsessed to get anywhere in this game and my wife would tell you that i live and breathe window cleaning
    If I'm not in the shed modifying tools i am working or leafletting or canvassing or on facebook or researching stuff or as my wife calls it "talking to a load of other sad window cleaners with no life on the forum" :rofl:

    It is the only way to build a successful business rather than just a job that pays the bills
