Gotta spend it to make it....
Have to know actual costs to make sure there is enough profit.
Yeah but no matter what you gotta spend some to make some....grow up kid.
He's dead on though. You can spend lots of $$$ without making a dime.

Holy crap and I thought mine was high
I'm shocked by how little some of you spend on fuel.... I go through more fuel in my car than some of you doin your trucks.
last year my second year in business i spent really close to 10,000 on fuel for 1 truck, 1 mower, and lots of 2 cycle equipment. i know my fuel costs are high, because i had a decent amount of drive time to 1 account, but this year the gaps between lawns are being filled in, which means my profits should go up. but its also my only vehicle, so my accountant subtracted 30 percent of the fuel costs as personal....
I'm close to 30k per year that's avg. last year with the drought and last year winter drop me down to 20k
This year will be down a little with the lost one job that cost $300 in fuel just mow it each visit.
