    I know that I use this type of schedule for snow removal during the winter months, but during the spring and summer months it could get a little more complicated.

    How many of you have a schedule for the season of the number of available hours to sell for services? For example, you have a 60 hour work week and you try to sell or have every hour of that work week filled with customers. It's basically I way to know that you are using all of your companys available hours.

    that's exactly 53 hrs a week, 40 weeks a year. april -november=34 weeks. i'll work 3 weeks in march, 3 in december. if my december gets cut short cus of snow, i'll make up the lost hrs easily by doing snow removal. "work" does not neccesarily mean field work either. i should be able to do my field work in 47 hrs, leaving 6 hrs a week for anything else. i'm actually gonna punch a time clock to be as accurate as possible, then at the end of the year, tally up the hrs on the time cards, and my bank statements, and see exactly what i made per hour
