Yes I pay myself $8 an hour with a bonus at the end of the year. This not the only thing I do, I also powerwash, this is an expansion and I am learning the ropes as I go. However, I do carry an insurance policy and it is not an under the table business. I operate solely as a limited liability company in the arena of grounds maintenance specializing in mobile homes and parks while I learn the ropes. However after doing some more math I have decided that I have underbid, but will fulfill the contract and raise my price next year.
