Minimum wage is 7.25 hr in NC so $58 for 8 hrs so im making $102 more than I woulld be making flipping burgers. Trust me thats good money imo. I dont have to drive a brand new truck, have a huge house, or eat steak every night to be happy.

In charlotte theres TONS of lowballers. Ive even had ppl bid lower than me asking $25 but theres also tons of people wanting lawn care because the hufe company they had charges $50 for doing a crappy job and I come in asking $35 and do much better and I usually always get tips.

I'm curious in your example how it only costs you $40 per day to operate? Maybe it was just an example, but I have to agree with Orangemower you really should sit down and figure out your TRUE operating costs, not trying to tear you down just trying to help
