C squared = A squared + b squared. Oh, wait that is the Pythagorean theorom.
Just keep of with ALL your cost, your time, and your income and use some common sense. Someone may have a formula, but they would have been better of cutting some grass than coming up with one.

I thought it was only 3 pages long. What formula did you use? It actually depends on your settings. I think I have 25 replys to a page.

only thing i can see working is take every single expense you have for the entire year including payroll and divide by (the number of customers you have times the amount of cuts they get a year)


i know my rates that will put money in my pocket and will never make an attempt to figure out my cost to drop my gate... besides the fact i cant predict how much money i will spend on bags, string, broken equipment , truck repairs....

That other thread is mainly about one guy saying he is making over 100g's and not everyone believing it.
