dos,int mater how great your round is ,if your not motivated to work

you will never make big money

Good on you fella. The lads have all given some sound advice above. Looks like your on the right path and must be working long hours doing both jobs. Keep going!

Agree with what Duncs has said. Another option is to sell off some of the round (or even give it to a friend to start out) Personally I try not to just dump it......especially when there's a buck to be made ;)

Well done Legend for what you've done so far. I was similar-working one job and building up my window cleaning. I saved all my window cleaning money(after paying off the initial equipment purchases) to give a bit of a cushion once I made the jump to window cleaning. Once my round was about 75% of the money of my job I quit and used the mone I had saved to subsidise whilst I picked up the rest I needed. Not sure where you are based, it seems like a lot of people on here spend a lot of time canvassing but in my experience I posted 5000leaflets by hand in evenings and weekends. The family helped! When a few of those responded I knew where to focus my door to door canvassing. To be honest I only did this for the first few months. Never looked back. 17 years later( and don't my joints know it!) I work 4 days a week. It takes 10 weeks to get round my round (most really don't mind the longer interval-I just charge them more, but it still works out cheaper for them per month) and that is with someone with me a few days a week. The absolute must for all of this though is to know yourself. You have to be able to get up and out every morning-easy when it's sunny, not when it's -5c! You need to be disciplined about tax money and budgeting. Your money comes in in peaks and troughs. I do my budget on a 4 week month, so 48 weeks a year. That way you have 4 weeks of "holiday" per year, weeks that if you earn no money your bills are still covered. That way you have the space for 2 weeks of guilt free holiday and 2 weeks for weather etc. Anyway, it's worked for me. Sorry for the long reply!
