Easy money

200 clams in the bank for two hours work (roto-tilling a lawn). I love making $100 an hour.

Yeah buddy if you price stuff right, the money will be there. I did a patio with 1 helper and made about 2 grand in 14 hours. I'll admit, the job went WAY faster than expected but it makes up for those crappy jobs you get trapped in.

I have some bad memories of those "jobs you get trapped in" lol.
I've taken less and less of those recently - you know, I never realized it until a couple years ago, but two jobs at $400 a pop are waaaay better than 4 jobs at $200 a pop (that I should have charged $300 for, and I know it )

Now I'm convinced that I need to buy a bigger tiller. . .

I'm working on a patio right now and the budget restrictions are killing me. I don't think I'm going to profit like I have all summer, but the only bonus is that it's a person in town that knows a lot of people. So ultimately, I might not make as much on this job, but it should drum up plenty of business.
