    Just curious as to how many of us make a living solely off of mowing...

    I work to pay all the main expenses for living.

    My wife works part time as an RN for the health insurance and to pay for "goodies" and for backup cashflow when my customers don't pay on time.

    If you really wanted to catagorize it, my wife's wages cover health insurance and taxes, essentially.

    My job pays for everything else.

    Some months i make good money, some months i make less! late payers, non payers ,gas prices, repair bills & a shitty economy sometimes makes my income at time less desirable to talk about.:cry:

    Yikes. I'm sole bread winner here, but I sure know that feeling right now. Nothing more depressing than working a 13 hour day and going home uneasy about whether or not you're actually making it right now...

    I am technically the sole bread winner. My wife helps with billing. I have no other real income than what I get form lawncare. We get by. This is not going to be our best year, but on good yrs we earn 6 figures.

    The questions are flawed I couldn't answer the survey because the selections given did not apply to me. you may assume others feel the same.....
