    Never worked 2 jobs. Windows takes up all my time. If not cleaning then either canvassing or relaxing.

    Ya basically my plan is to earn around £100-200 more than what my paye jobs pay and that will give or take for cancellations or people messing me about ect
    then i can spend more time on windows i spend 5 hrs a day on the windows or doing canvassing so aint to bad

    whats your customer base like now posh u mind me asking ?

    I work full time 39 hours a week paye then window clean on days off. Then any spare time is spent managing the forum. Really need more business so I can give my paye job up.

    20 years paye for Royal mail, 40 hrs a week but I'm handing in my notice next week due to excessive work loads and later start times, meaning I can't get done on time to pick the kids up from school.
