    Hello All

    I'm considering starting a business. Not specific to lawn care, more general excavation service.
    Before I jump into a huge start up debt any advice. In particular I'm trying to work out if the market will support another small excavation company. I see a lot of ads on-line, and from the numbers I've run you would need to charge about $65 to make a living. Even at that rate a person would need to be sure of 40 billable hours per week.
    Any advice offered regarding this business area would be greatly appreciated.
