    iv gotten to thinking that theres quite a lot of newbies come and ask advice but give up [certainly on the forums] shortly thereafter . now why is this ?

    i can remember feeling very unsure when i stumbled onto my first window cleaning forum,CIU , in 2009 . id been a windie about 6 months,still using a BnQ squeegee with its original rubber and old bath towel bits as cloths. the true amateur.
    i posted ,cant remember about what, and had my head bitten off by "the pros" on that forum. i NOW realize that theres no such thing as a pro in this trade just folk who have been at it for longer and got more of a foothold.

    this forum is very good at encouraging newbies having said that

    I think this is an excellent site for the newbie. Everyone is helpful, positive, constructive and empathetic......all with lashings of humour and cheekiness.

    Whats not to like?

    I like that whether you have been a window cleaner for years or just thinking about starting out, you always get people willing to share their knowledge.

    This is a good place to be.

    Thanks guys, it's something I always wanted to ensure our forum did, as I had exactly the same experience with said forum! That's how we started really. I thought well if they are that rood I shall damn well start my own nice, friendly and helpful forum and here we are today. ;)
