    I work full time in a local builders merchant to me hard graft and the money is grim
    This is y I have got my own van and wfp gear to get my wages up
    On the wkends the problem I have got is I'm Neva getting time with the family working 7 days a week and also not getting time canvassing for my own work
    I love being my own boss and a life on the glass only being doing this a few months so not shureflo how business is in the winter. Window cleaning or builders merchant think I need to take make a choice

    Theres no telling what winter will bring, There may be times where you cant work. If you have some money you can rely on. I would jack your job in you will find you have way more time to get things done, The main one being canvassing and you will get time to spend with that family.

    Jacking a full time job in and being broke maybe a good motivator to some but doesn't pay the bills or keep a roof over your head if you can't earn enough money each month. Simples...

    The reality is you would probably land yourself in a lot of debt before you start earning the same amount in the job you packed in. Therefore I would advise to think very carefully what you do next as could be the biggest mistake of your life especially if you have a partner and kids to support..
