Ok folks before I ask my question here is my background: Started my business in Nov '02 with a partner, learned that lesson quickly so in '03 I took it over by myself. I've gone from a meager 9k gross (annually) to 60k gross (annually). I have a 1 ton vehicle, 6x12 trailer, 60" Exmark ZTR, 36" Exmark walk-behind, all Shindaiwa power equipment. I am at a point where I'm going to add some workers before next spring. I would really appreciate your advice on paying hourly or paying by salary.
