    I'm solo and have about 25 weekly and 3-5 bi-weekly customers. I gross about $700 on avg I'd say ( including clean up jobs, hedge trimming, ect ) but 85% of my income is from mowing jobs.

    When I was solo I netted somewhere in the vicinity of $40K/yr with two weeks off - so around $800/wk.
    Since I have nine full time and three part time employees, I pay myself $1K/wk, and all my living expenses are paid by my company as part of my compensation.
    Employees can be a pain at times but I am nudging $700K/yr as of right now but I have a hugely important meeting next Tuesday and should it come out alright I'll double my gross:cool2:
