Can I pick your brains for some numbers??


I've been running an organic fert and weed business on
the side for a couple of seasons now that has gone well
enough to consider making the jump into a full service
company. As I mull it over though I find that my experience
doesn't necessarily make for the best template. I
need better info.

I'd be curious to hear from some long time pros what
your weekly/monthly/whatever operating expenses
come to. My fuel, labor, insurance etc. costs aren't
at all the same as a full service and I don't want to
just make blind guesses.

That said you can just ballpark it and since Im new
to the business I'll add another 15% on top for stupid
tax or tuition or whatever you want to call it.

Just for the record Im shooting for 40-50 accounts
for the first year which shouldn't be much of a stretch
considering my current customer base. I'll have
all the start up costs that come with the territory of
course buy I can estimate those a little more closely.
