Well it's funny how life's twists and turns shape a business and make you reconsider your priorities in life. Today my number two man decided he was leaving to move back closer to family and friends. This allows me to re-evaluate how to manage the business. Originally it was supposed to be a lifestyle business not all about the money, more about the bills being covered and having time to enjoy life. Well due to being rather good at what we do we have a reputation, and a good one at that so we end up with over 600 customers. Well that's too much like real work for me these days. I look forward to tomorrow with baited breath as all those customers that have been a pain or agro in the past will be gone. All those, 'sorry mate, got no cash on me, can I pay double next month?'...........reply.....'You cant afford to pay this month, why would I believe your gonna have money to pay me net month?' Well those wankers will be axed. All those 'Oh it's not convenient today, can you come another day?' ...........reply............'NO you are an inconvenience' The cull begins tomorrow good by to all wankers and I can think of almost 20 straight of the bat that will have to go. At least 40 that will have to go onto direct debit as I am sick of chasing money from them, and probably another 20 that will be told to sort themselves out (leave the gate unlocked!) or get another window cleaner. This will be fun.
