When most solo operations make half of that amount. I understand it would work for someone like trugreen but im referring to operations that employ 4 to 50 people.
The part that they don't tell you is the big million dolar operation also is building equity in trucks, equipment ...worth and that dude likly has guys to do most everything so he can take vacations etc....they also take low margins so they can make the big bucks on the extras.....
