In the window cleaning industry, winter is traditionally a time to get prepared for the busy season coming up. For the lucky ones, it's also a chance to take a holiday in warmer climes. One thing is clear: if you work a lot, you should also give yourself time to relax. In a world that is becoming more and more complex, such breaks also provide you with a good opportunity to get fit for the upcoming season.

Many of you have long recognised this. The number of pros participating in seminars clearly demonstrates this.
