    Hi Guys,

    Brand new to the site so thought I'd introduce myself and hopefully get a bit of advice from some of you.

    I am currently employed as a warehouse supervisor but, ever since working briefly as a window cleaner when I was a bit younger I've always viewed it as a nice way to earn a living. Basically, I'm 35 now and tired of working for someone else.I've purchased my ladders and kit and am all set to go.(Business cards in the post).

    I have 5 jobs in the bag to get me started and my target is 200 - 300 jobs!!!

    I will be running this along side my current job for as long as possible but will have to take the leap at some point.

    Any advice would be very welcome.

    Cheers

    Lee.

    Hi Mike,

    I'm based in Daventry (small market town in the midlands).

    I'm not looking to get rich, just want to do something for myself and see where it takes me.

    Where are you?
