Ok first break down your yearly costs into daily cost and then break them into hour cost. Then add you truck fuel into a hour cost and then break down your replacement eqipment costs into a hour cost and the rest of your fuel. Then add $15 a hour to all that. Even though your working solo your business is paying yourself and you consider that an expense because your taking the roll of an employee. I am going to bet your for getting close to $30 for your break even point. Now add how much you want to make and how much you want your business to make. If you did $10 and $10 then your looking at $50 a hour. So for example you would need $300 a day to break even and $500 a day to make pretty darn good money and now you would have to translate this into billable hrs.
