Heres a quick break down of expenses per day.

Truck .80$ per mile x 50 miles = 40$

Mower 8$ per hour x 5 hours = 40$

Handheld and misc = 10$

So basically on a 300$ day expenses are around 1/3.

That's 100$ so I would net 200$ for the day.

Taxes will kill off at least 1/3 of that so in my pocket a 300 $ day is actually around 150$ in real income.

If you don't know your expenses its possible your working for literally nothing.
