    My business plan and budget is done in December for the following year. That way I can throughly review all the #'s...and no, I won't tell you how much I want to make or how much I will make. I'll have to measure the mattresses and let ya know :D

    ive done the numbers. What I came out with is that I might make more money working for someone else. Not sure if I want to do that though sense it'll only be my 3rd year next year.

    before I'd go back to working for someone else. That to me is the definition of hell on earth to know I don't control my life, that I'm working at the whim of someone who might lay me off without a second thought. Hang in there and it will only get better :)

    GOALS
    1. Bigger truck and a trailer.
    2. 37" WB or 52" ZTR
    3. $2000.00 per month after gas and regular maintenance expenses.
    4. Insurance and business license after first months bills.

    I'll be a junior in high school, so it will be hard to make that $2500.00, but I think I can do it if I put my mower to it. Atleast $2000.00 per month or I'll get a part-time job in the summer. I see no point in doing nothing if you can be earning money. I just don't like the $5.25-$5.85 per hour a part-time job involves. Most mowing companies need good help and I am definetley good help after hearing everyones employee nightmares.
