That is a very broad question. No way to answer that, outside of just a shot in the dark.

Well, thats gonna partly depend on how many hours your $7.50 per hour help works.

You can't even get a ballpark range with that vague of a question.

That seems a little on the high side.

Now that I have ran the numbers and thought about it I revise my first estimate of $14.29. My new estimate is $9.73 net profit...

It depends on how many hours you pay your help and if you pay them legally or not. We also need to know what your per hour expenses to operate are and how many hours you operated.

I don't have employees but I do know that it costs me about $19 an hour to stay in business. That includes taxes, insurance, fuel, replacement parts, oil, replacement costs for new mowers, truck, advertising, postage, software etc.

I have a friend who did around $70k last year with a couple of employees (no taxes taken out) and his net is so low he won't even tell me what it is.
