I Am Wondering If Its Time To Say To Myself Do It Big Or Dont Do It At All. I Have A Company That Has 2 Emplys And 90 Accts. I Was Thinking I Would Make A Lot More With More Lawns And More Employees. Your Insurance Will Stay The Same(gl) You Have A Lot Of Fixed Cost With A Lawn Buss? What Are Your Imputs.

A small company can do just as well, if not better, than a large company.

Take a look at your revenue and expenses and figure your profit margin. If you expand your busniess your revenue will go up but profit margin down (more expenses)

I'm solo but I can imagine that labor is one if not THE major cost in operating a lawn biz. Too bad we can't ship it overseas for cheap labor. Oh, my bad. They come to us now.

For us it's...

1. Payroll and Employer Taxes
2. Fuel
3. Insurance

not necessarily...the key is to look at how it's managed.
