I drive a 15 year old car just because I want to and I like it. Had it 11 years. I live a modest lifestyle coz it suits me. People probably think I ain’t got 2 pennies to rub together. Don’t be fooled

Because you're believing what another windy claims. So he has 3 lads plus him, plus insurance, pensions, holiday, repairs and renewals etc etc yet has no outgoings. Must be a proper cowboy or bull 💩ter.

I spoke to another windy a while back, he told me that between him another van he had so one man in each van they were doing 2,000 jobs a month, he said can you imagine getting through that much work, I really couldn't see him getting through a decent days graft once a week let alone 250 jobs a week. 

Seem like other windys are the worst for been full of 💩

He was telling me last year how many he now has working for him.I asked him how he got on with the vat being mainly domestic and why he still uses spotless?He just looked blank.He was like "I'm not turning over that amount yet".

I've never known bull$%%$%$ like it.

Local trad chap  who has two chaps working with him told me he was doing £10k a week but was bored with it and was in negotiations to sell it all for over £100k. 
Then he drives of in a 2002 Peugeot 306 estate with different colour drivers door and the exhaust hanging off. 
Yes course you are 😂

I agree with what you are saying but some people are very wealthy but choose to drive old bangers my father-in-law is a case in point 😂😂😂😂😂

That’s not a great amount for two plus vans if we’re being honest.

Consider costs and vat for starters and it’s not a lot left over from 10-12k in a month.

perhaps he does but there’s more to it than just how much revenue you make. Once you start hitting like 3-400 plus clients the admin takes a lot of effort especially if you’re not all over it with good systems and management.

there is a reason there is so few very large window cleaning companies. Pryors is big but service is generally known to be extremely questionable.

regardless of what people say. Just do your thing and keep progressing day by day. Everyone is always fronting how great everything. Most of the time it’s a load of bull and they rarely talk of their mistakes and errors. See if all the time.

Why on earth would you even contemplate selling a business for just 10 weeks turnover. OK so I know it's profit not turnover that counts but if a windy business was turning over that much then I am sure it would be worth more than just over 2x monthly turnover!!!

Why is it that people are just interested in telling people how great they are???? I blame social media - it's all me, me, me......

Yeah this is very true.  The ones who don't flash it can be very wealthy, I've known a few like that.  Happier to wear a 20 year old coat and drive the cheapest cars they can find.  Strange really when you think about it.  Guess they just don't want to buy into all this keeping up with the jones'.

Don't waste your energy thinking about what somebody says they are doing, concentrate instead on your own business and how to get the best out of that, you may be a better window cleaner than he is anyway.
