For the past 15 years Ive worked as a self-employed window cleaner.

It has provided me with all the flexibility I have needed to bring up my son and get him through school - never missing a sports day or parents evening, which I am very grateful for.

However, now his schooling is coming to an end and his needs are changing, Im starting to think its time for a change. As we all know, a change is as good as a rest sometimes.

My previous career was in scaffolding which I followed for about 11 years. I think the time has come to maybe start my own business once again in this industry.

The demand for such a business seems to be growing rapidly, with health and safety being at the forefront of the construction industry.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated on setting up and running a Limited Company as I have only ever operated as a Sole Trader and wouldnt want to jump into it blind and make fundamental mistakes which can be avoided with the correct guidance.

Dave Fishwick, This Is Money's business doctor replies:I think its wonderful that you have been able to spend time with your family and get the work-life balance right.
