    I had a very successful business, sold it last year moved 200 miles south, I need to earn some money and window cleaning is what I know, but I just can't knock on the first door, my old business was worth a fair amount when we sold it.

    When I started my first few jobs were £1.20 & £1.50, how times change hey !

    I just need to get started half a dozen £10's and i'll be happy.

    If anyone lives Exeter/Newton Abbot and will help me for an hour I will buy the cider.

    Don't see why you had to mention those large amounts of monies.....thought I was on CIU for a moment.

    So what's the problem with knocking a few doors yourself.
    If you had such a successful business and window cleaning is what you know, it shouldn't be too hard to introduce yourself and services offered to prospective customers.....would it .......or am I missing something .

    Where's your half a mill now? Surely the interest would be more than half a dozen £10s a month!!

    With respect If you can build a strong business like you say from nothing I'm sure you have the ability to do it a gain.

    The hardest door to open is the van door.
    Lack of confidence.
