I'm paying customers to let me teach them alternative plastering techniques

So you go round to customers houses but get them to do the job, and make the brews, and still get paid at the end..... and they can’t even make any complaints because it’s their work....

You might just be a genius!!

Personally unless you can compete with gold trowel and the likes you will struggle...

I have seen so many plasterers try and set up training schools and they dont work. The costs involved are big and I am not sure how mrs Jones would like students trashing her drive and carpets...

However.... I am a serial entrepreneur and so I love the thinking outside the box

Think he means people plaster their own houses, not that students plaster someone else's. I suppose it could work as people want to have a go themselves but need some guidance, although people who want to have a go themselves do it to save money so maybe not...

Here's my tip - this is the stupidest idea I have ever heard in my life. You want the customer to plaster their own house and pay you £180 a day to watch them do it one wall at a time?

Is that right or did I miss something?

Say 50 walls a house Inc ceiling.

2 sets a day.

25 days.

Let's call it £200 a day for easy multiplication.

Five grand a house.

You spakker.

I assume that's what he means. There are people who want to learn how to plaster but don't want to pay £1000s for a course in a city hours away. So to save overheads of an industrial unit he comes to you, and together you f**k up your house lol

My top tips mate are always two coat properly, none of this one coat crap we read about and don’t do the sponge s**t either that just makes life hard and destroys the plaster

Also try and keep things basic and simple don’t buy to many different tools, never apply more than you can finish too

Tell us more, have you researched whether there is a market for your idea?
