    if you could CLEAR $400 a day, is that good money? now before we start with expenses, etc., i did say CLEAR $400. this is after all is said and done. if you could litterally draw a paycheck for $400 a day, is this good money?

    $2200 a week clear! auto workers don't make that, steel workers don't, most major trades don't make that kind of $$$ so yeah its good for most. If your a brain surgeon an attorney that specializes or something like it then you would probably be taking a pay cut. But I can live just fine on 100k a yr.

    so from April thru October, that would roughly be 70,400.00 CLEAR. and that's not counting any work in march or november.
    Yes, that's good, but the question is, can you CONSISTENTLY CLEAR that every day (5.5 days). Come August it will be harder to clear that each week especially if you have clients on the "by the cut" setup. I think it is important to clear more than that the first 3 months to prepare for the slowdown when the heat of the summer comes on.
