    How much time do you think you spend on billing, organising cleans etc etc? What works well?

    I seem to spend a lot so I try and bill some less frequently, update my spreadsheet with cleans and income once a week, organise future cleans weekly etc, banking weekly, update accounts for tax return etc 6 monthly.

    Admin is unavoidable but getting more efficient at it is a good target....

    there is also prepping kit admin I suppose.

    4-5 hours ?

    After you have all your info in a system it should only take a few seconds as you finish a job. Monthly invoice jobs that I do weekly it prints off the jobs stored. Less work on admin more time earning money on the glass ;-)
