$27,052, started keeping track with an accountant on June 22, started in May, but pocketed cash for a while. This was my first year, didn't turn down any work. Still pocketed a few thousand cash that wasnt counted. BUT, bought over $40,000 equipment, have mega payments. Having bought all the equipment I need, I hope 2007 payments will start to go down while profits go up.

You are right.
That was wrong. It was suppose to be $39,820 and $21,720.

money for 06

Total for 06 was $18,450 after all expenses cleared $12,300. 07 I hope will be my best year yet. I am keeping all my old accounts plus hoping to get a townhouse bid for $10,000 more.

In the Spring I do quite a bit of large mulching jobs. Then the rest of the year I mow on Wednesday & Thursday - start around 5:30 & finish @ dark. Landscape maintenance (trimming) & chemical apps get done while on site or on the other days. If I'm not working - mowing, landscaping, or giving bids - I'm at the lake w/ the family. I'm all about working smarter & not harder. I have fun doing what I do!

I'm 17, just under $9000 in sales ($8831.48) after all expences and paying my helper i got $3632.23. My sales doubled over last year so i was happy with that and made more per hour because i was more efficient. Happy to have all equipment including the truck fully paid off by me too. Looking foward to doing even better next season.

Wow, you guys made me just check quickbooks, Can't believe it. Grossed $40,299.75 and that was just from September till now since I installed Quickboods. I must have grossed about 60K this year but I haven't updated Jan. till Sept yet. Dam, Not bad for being 18 Hay. Wow, that just blows me away. I never even pay attention to this stuff. I just make sure the checks come in the mail. Wish you guys the best of luck on 07, since this was the big year for me. Funny thing was I never advertised once this year.
