    personal choice

    if u can pay back the money and willing to pay back the interest why not

    guy i was with last year had a new van and ionics system worth around 18-20k in total all on finance or a loan

    i once had a loan for 10k and all i did was buy nice things out of it lol payed it all back over 2-3 years

    imo its worth doing it if your 100% dedicated

    First of all mate pass yer test. I'm sure we prob all felt like you did and like any other jobs it has it's pros and cons. But believe me it's great being yer own boss doing something you enjoy and getting paid for it. I love it. Everything about the job is great. Ok collecting and weather can get you down but once you collected and got yer dosh it's a good feeling and when the sun comes out lts great. You need to work at it at first with canvassing and door knocking or you could get a canvasser to do it for you. Don't get despondent. It don't happen in 5 mins but yes mate go for it. The other thing you gotta think of is asking us is ok but wer'e all windys Who love it or we wouldn't do it. My advise is go for it if yer confident.

    Are you going to be doing trad cleaning?, if so, that should be ample to get yourself through your test, get a small, cheapish, reliable car, and still have enough left over for all your gear. Even wfp its do-able, if you know someone, a friend or family member who could give you some lessons, as they cost a fortune these days!. It would have to be a diy system for sure, and a cheaper van, but do-able all the same!.

    Either way,

    YES!, GO FOR IT! :)

    I hate the risk of taking loans, but having said that I needed a hefty business loan from my bank to get started, and it sure paid off, as long as your hard working it'll pay off!
