    After a long morning on the mower without anyone to talk to I started thinking about how I run my business. I'm solo with summer help and at the rate I'm growing a full time guy might be in the works.

    I was thinking about how my expenses and what would be good percentages of my budget for them. Categories like, truck/equipment operation, future equipment purchase, insurance, taxes, my take home pay, etc.

    Anyone ever done this or have some good percentage numbers? I know everyone has different expenses, but overall percentages should be the same if you were grossing 100 or a million.

    Edit: Not a landscaper. I do mowing, lawn apps/seeding, and some pine straw and minor pruing
