    You ask any windy if they love there job they will say yes, ask any other person if they love there job and I bet 90% would say no, so by my calculations and masses of knowlege and interlect I've came up with this. ^lol

    Window cleaning has to be the best job in the world.

    Took me months to conduct those tests.

    I concur.
    Though I do know one person who dislikes window cleaning, yet his is not the best circumstances and I thoroughly agree with him, if he changed who he worked with he'd love it.

    I wouldn’t want to work as a ‘window cleaner’! Running your own window cleaning business is a completely different thing, even if it’ you doing all the work.

    Coming from that point of view, I think its 100% better than any ‘job’ and it offers much more than all the ‘average Joe’s’ could hope for.

    The thing to keep guard of is that it does become a 'job'.

    Your business owner, cleaning the windows is only one part of what you have to do.

    The main difference for me is I am able to control the earnings, if I was working as a window cleaner for somebody else business; I would have little to no control.

    My advice is don’t get bogged down with only the cleaning aspect, it is all to easy to fall into that trap, look at all your figures often and make changes frequently, ‘A window cleaner’ cant do this

    (James if its love, don’t change a thing)

    hey all! my first post.....and it's on my love hate relationship with window cleaning!

    I love the fact it's pretty decent money, and gives flexibility, and that the more you put into it, the more you get back. but I also hate it, when the weather's not just right, and your hose tangles on everything, and you've got no motivation, and, your window cleaning lol.

    I lorry drive 2 days a week, normally Friday and Saturday, so gives me something to look forward to. but if I went back to trucking full time I'd hate that even more!

    but I agree with above, its better window cleaning when your your own boss. you get to reap more benefits that way!
