what I did to calculate my costs is I added up all my expenses for the year and divided by the months worked then I broke it down to weeks, then days. its not an exact number but a rough idea, for me its 82 dollars every single day. that's not what it costs me hourly to do business but that's what I figured my daily overhead is for all 365 days of the year, and that number can and will go down, its includes about 20k in debt. spread out over a 4 small loans. which is spread out over 5 years. i guess if i divided that number but 8 hours or whatever then I would what it costs me per hour to do business. so i guess its about 10.25/hour does that sound possible?
