The quickest way to make a lot of money is to do those things that other people DETEST doing ... and doing them well.

Most people HATE to wash windows and when they do, it takes quite a while to drag out the ladders and do the work. The professional window washers have all the tricks down and can do it in about 1/4th the time.
