Not trying to be a dick. Just rying to dispel a number of myths that seem to surface every year with the latest crop of new guys.

I think it goes without saying that some common sense needs to be applied. If you're running around in a 50k truck with a couple 10k mowers and 2 more employees than you really need then yeah you're going to go broke.

$1 a minute. Tested to be 100% accurate for years and years and years. It's the standard. The problem lies in when people say they get that $1 a minute but actually aren't getting anywhere close to that. You can't just say it. You actually have to do it.
