now, I am by no means an expert, and I definitely don’t have experience training anyone, but I do know this: I straight pulled for the first two years I was in business, but in two days of trying I had fanning down to an acceptable level, and in one day I figured out how to use my 10" liquidator effectively and what I honestly believe is the biggest factor is how much drive you have. It’s very obvious to me that most kids my age want a job that they can just stand there and be told what to do (Heck I was that way, and still am in a lot of ways), and none of them want to go home and practice fanning for two hours and not get paid for it. I think if you found someone that actually cared about window washing, actually was excited by it and didn’t find it to just be another day another job and weren’t just looking for another way to make some easy money you would find them picking it up very quickly. Think about this. Who is going to learn faster, some random stranger that you grab off of the street and throw a squeegee at and just start telling them what to do or someone who comes up to you and says “I want to learn how to squeegee like that, can you show me?” ? I think it’s all about mentality, and frankly, a lot of people have no interest in being a professional window cleaner, they just want to do what their boss says they have to get their check and go home. But of course I could be dead wrong, I am only 2 years into this profession.
