    if you were making $75 an hour, for 6-8 hrs a day, 5-6 days a week, would you be making good money?

    I would think so...especially if you are alone.

    At the minimum that would be $117,000 a year, I would be slugging my dummy sideways if I was doing that good!

    That is pretty good if you can maintain the rate and hours worked per week.

    What do you think?

    Clearing or grossing? In my first year part time, I averaged about $60/hr on residentials and $100 on my commercials....I consider that good money by myself. $500-600 grossing residentials days, and $800-$1000 commercials days....

    hhhmm, I read this here before not too long ago, I just can't remember who said it. ;)

    Quote: what makes you even think in terms of hourly income? isn't that for employees?

    OK BooBy

    Where is this Troll going?? So far it is pretty lame. Now I did heard that the State of New Jerky was planning on giving you a rise by increasing minim wage.

    for someone who stuanchly opposed thinking in hourly terms a while back, i'm suprised at you asking this.

    that's close to your magical $120K/year.

    I'd say that's pretty good for a solo

    Any money is good money. There is no such thing as bad money.
