We are about to start year five and will approach the half a mill mark if not go over it this year. I will staff about 10 - 12 guys this year anywhere from 20-40 hours. By 2015 I want to be doing over a million in our combined markets by 2017 I want to be at a million in each market so 3 million total.

not to be "that guy" but your revenue per employee is way out in left field.

how can you make that assumption? Its like saying everyone who likes seeing rainbows is queer. Just because you love this industry doesnt mean you have to be the one doing the work. Again, its all about training others to do your job one day.

Revenue per employee is only about 42,000. Not unusual--if fact, a good fert spraying outfit should hit about 100,000 per lawn tech. Of course, you need a couple office people to answer the phones and post the charges and credit the checks, and perhaps a mechanic or assistant manager.

Let me clarify we do a wide range of services. Not just apps.
