This is just out of curiousity. Here is my example. You work from March 15 to Nov 15th. Doing cleanups, lawns, whatever you do at whatever time of year. No snow work at all. You and 2 workers work 40 hours a week So you have 3 workers, working 40 hours per week for 36 weeks. we have a total of 4,320 man hours X $60 (a dollar a minute that we hear of so frequently)= $259,200. Expences Payroll 42,000 this is at about $15 per hour gas 5,000 insurance 5000 equip maintenace & repair 15,000 advertizing 5000 office supplies 5000 other supplies 5000 total expences 82,000 (im sure i missed something) income 259,000 - expences 82,000 = 177,200 so your net profit before taxes is $123 per hour??? Yes im sure things were missed, but i just dont get it.
