the most common statement made on lawnsite, by the "pros" is :" you need to know your costs. once you know your costs, you price your services enough to make "a profit." this word "profit" is very broud, and misleading. what is meant by this word "profit". and why do you think, that if everyone were on the same level "playing field" carrying all the right licensing, and paying all the right taxes, that this would make our pricing more of a standard, from lco to lco, than a roller coaster?
