I see SO MANY posts on this site related to $/hour. It seems EVERYONE wants to know what their competition is charging. It really shouldn't matter though. It's all about what it cost YOU to do biz. So, how many of you actually sat down and figured out what you need to charge. How did you do it? Did you use an accountant? How do you deal with variable costs? How do you deal with fixed costs? How did you determine your final $ per hour? Did you do time analysis for your services? Do you have a spreadsheet or other useful tool to determine overhead costs? Say you have a lot of overhead but only a few jobs. You cant just charge $500/hr to cover costs. How can you determine a fair $/Hr figure without cheating yourself? Personally, I have made spreadsheets to figure my costs. However, it seems so hard to really nail it down accurately.
