    All I want to know is, is it possible to make $2000 per week solo or non solo?

    What does everyone else make in a week? Just an average or estimate.

    I just need an idea of what to expect my first year in business.

    Not here. Solo, run about 1400 or so. That is really going to it. Some of the guys up north do it. That is after three years. The first year plan on eating allot of beans and rice.

    I've done 1800-1900 a couple of weeks solo this summer (1st year), quite a few over 12-1400, and a 'regular' week comes in at a little more than a grand (net).

    I just had my first $10,000 month in July and I'm solo. I worked a crap load though. About 80% of the income was from mowing, then I had a few extra jobs. full time helper next year, I cant wait.
