I did job couple days ago 1 Hour away for an older couple. 2 bedrooms. Still don't know what takes me so long - 3 hours there.

Charged them $175 + tax. 3 hours cleaning and 2 hours driving. Cashflow. Nothing else on the schedule Im just starting out.
I know it can feel pretty lonely when you compare your results of time to others on here because it feels like they live in a different reality than you are experiencing. Your not alone with this my friend. Keep at it long enough and things will start to change... so I'm told( smile).

2 things to encourage you.

1) If you've got nothing else to do, then a job is a job.

2) Practice makes perfect. You will be amazed how fast you'll be able to get once you've developed a system.
And you got paid to learn, so it's like college except you get paid...

I'm doing a small job this week, but it's in an area I like being seen in and I'll make enough to buy groceries for a couple of weeks!

Sweet dude! :)

The encouragement Im getting in this thread alone is wayyy more than I could have imagined. Not to say I was bummed over the job I talked about. For me it is as you said - if nothing else a job is a job!

Definitely like learning with some income/pay behind also.

Also, FWIW - Just booked a job 2 miles away for this week. 3 areas - $260! (not bragging just thankful) Kind of ironic so close after this other job I mentioned was far away.
