You have to know your costs. Starting out you have to figure out your best guess on what your costs are.

Many new people have no idea how long it will take to do many jobs. So guess. Be prepared to guess wrong. Keep accurate time records to eventually get realistic times.

Then figure on your desired salary, and reinvestment money to buy new equipment, trucks, trailers to grow and replace what you have when it wears out.

All those numbers add to your hourly rate.
