    After you pay your suppliers, workers, insurance, payments and taxes, how much do you take home at the end of the year?

    Asking for a little too personal info and what makes you believe anyone would post the true amounts.

    Also it would vary and could vary widly from yr to yr.
    If you do snow and have a good yr it can add over 6 figures for some, If you only do hardscape it will vary from solo to employees to the # of commercial vrs. residential.

    Enough, a tad better then minimum wage .As MAC suggested, many variables exist year to year, different biz structures etc. And our complete picture is plowing, maintenance, landscaping and hardscapes.Many variables.

    Hey Marc,

    That is a pretty personal question. As many have said there are to many variables, and it is not so cut and dry.

    If the question that you are really looking to have answered is: Can you make a living doing this? Then the answer would be yes.

    Does it usually happen within the first couple of years in business? No, not usually. It is possible but not probable.

    Lipinski and Josephs, two very large companies in our area, started off very small. Lipinski is like number 5 in the nation (I think) in snow removal. Stephen Joseph went to high school with my brother- in- law. He started with a push mower in the back of his pick up. He now runs a multi-million dollar biz.

    I know that this isn't exactly what you asked, but I hope that it helps.:)

    Just take the time to learn from people like: Mac, Bill, She, Rod, etc., and that will help you to get where you want to be in a timely fashion.

    Last year I took home a hair over 9 million.

    Then the bank called and asked me to stop writing bad checks.
