I am currently working for a real estate company mowing foreclosed homes. Right now they are about 90% of my business and pay me every week. Right now I do about 60 cuts in 3 1/2 days with me and brother. They said that if I could handle 130-160 cuts a week, they will give it to me. My problem is I need to add another crew to be on their own. I was thinking about waiting for next year to go bigger, but should I go ahead and hire a helper to help me now, and give him control of the other crew next year? If I hire him now I was thinking about paying $80 a day and when he drive by himself, $95 per day. What advice can you guys give me for adding a new crew to do about 60-80 cuts pr week?
