    I ripped the signs of the trailer and feel like putting one up that says "NO" I can't cut another lawn!! It feels great to be maxed out. It seems like everyones husband has injured his back and can't cut the lawn. Time to raise prices!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. Thats what I always figure, if I'm getting too busy I'm not charging enough.

    I agree!, I was telling my wife the other day that I have only lost one bid do to price. I think I'm going to have to look in the mirror and say prices until I can't say them with a straight face. Then back off 5% and that will be my price. lol

    A mechanic friend of mine that owns his own shop that works on high-end cars mercedes, bmw, porshce told me to raise my prices and watch the customers fall. I have done that a little bit each year since then and wow what an awesome thing. I lost a 1200 mulching job on this past thursday, later that day i show up to a house that needs all kinds of work (sh*thole) talked to the contractor and told him 40-50 per man per hour. He said get started. So hopefully he can keep his word.
