    well i was just throwing some numbers around and i figured that if i went from 125 to 250 acounts and added a second crew. minus expense of wages i would make like 5 grand above doing half as much with one guy. Then theres the extra vehicle insurance, equip, etc,etc. Can someone with 2 or 3+ crews fill me in, preferably in small residential under 5000 sqft. I need to figure this all out as im a junior and soon going to have to decide what to do with my life. Id love to continue to be in the business but i want to kno the limits of this industry. Also how do you go about adding a second crew. Do you let the accounts build up and be overworked for a while or start a crew but only part time?
