    Curious to see what the average gross for a solo op is here... You can keep it anonymous by not commenting until numerous votes have been done.

    Your primary business should be maintenance with extras (ferts, clean-ups, aerations, etc.) figured in. Please don't vote if your primary business is applications or landscaping. Please don't figure in snow plowing either. Also.. no part timers.

    Please feel free to vote if you were solo until recently..

    I know the hours per week would help but I couldn't figure a way to put it in with only 5 choices.. Maybe we can all comment later or do another poll?

    Any comments on the poll? Anyone surprised so far?

    Do you think we should acknowledge our vote.. for some kind of verification? Any other info you want to provide?

    I can account for one of the votes. I'm in my third year and work approximately 40 hours per week.

    Of the guys making $45k or less, I wonder how many are part timers....

    Well... if they can read and follow direction.. none should have voted.. right?

    Are you solo Jon99.. did you vote? How many hours do you put in on average?

    Speed Limit signs also say 55 MPH, doesn't mean people obey them.... :)

    I will be solo, my equipment is recently bought and sitting in storage until I get some accounts... I am a recent casualty of corporate downsizing, took my severence and bought a mower and collecting unemployment and working a little... My logo, business cards, truck signs etc will be done this week, should be ready to do a little advertising soon before I hit it hard in the spring..
