That means I would have to cut 3 lawns at $45 each in an hour to even come close to making %50 gross profit. Are these the numbers you guys are coming up with or am I missing something?
I don't think I read you stating this, but... are you planning on doing this full time or part time? Just that you're starting a business. If you're going full time what type of job are you giving up, what's your current situation (life/family/financial...). That factors a lot into what you are going to need for your gross profit.
