why i work where i do

east-england11is it because i live there already? no its not that,i only work 1 day per week in my immediate home area. As a business owner window cleaner im lucky i can choose to work in places that i enjoy working.If i dont feel a good vibe then i stop cleaning windows there and move on to somewhere with a better vibe. Its not about money,its the Vibe . Of course i have to get paid for my services ,if i dont well that can contribute to a bad vibe situation. Certainly dont stick around if the air stinks! In the past ive turned down some very well paid jobs just because the air stinks ,well not actually smells bad,more like theres red flags + electrostatic in the air- you get my drift?

Thats why people go on holiday to nice places,to get a good vibe. A great view can give a good vibe . So can a wonderful menu. Sometimes you simply dont know why it is,but a place Just Plain Feels Right !

Recently i was reading the biography of the famous actor Robert Shaw ,he mostly played hard nosed types in war/action films back in the 1970s. Anyway he decided to live in a small out of the way place in Ireland simply because it had a good vibe.Actually he died there too,at the roadside .He pulled up suddenly in his big car after feeling unwell got out and lay down. He said to his wife “dont leave me”, but she went off to get help ,by time she got back he had gone….shaw

acid -causes me grief

this bottle of acid normally resides happily in my van. Its used by me or my lads to remove hard water stains from glass . It is a great way to get rid of severe stains .

But the bottle split and leaked unnoticed and slowly poisoned the air in the van. Its awful stuff !!-anyway its now gone and the new acid container has a leakproof box as a bulletproof solution IMG_0797

Nothing in life is for free ?

or is it?  right from when i first started my window cleaning biz ive been doing “an extra” for free .  and i never mention it to a customer.  i Hope they notice it and think “ah thats nice ” -which is probably why i do it.

so what is it?  when anyone engages my biz to get their windows cleaned on the first clean they get the entire outer doors cleaned and scrubbed and polished for free. From then on at each subsequent window clean the doors are kept clean by wiping/scrubbing to maintain the appearance . I Love You-0007 (4)
