Just so you know my wife will reading these responses. We did have a bit of a disagreement over my prices. She thinks I need to be willing to work for cheap $20 an hour including maintenance, equipment replacement fund, advertisement, gas, insurance and all the related expenses. We all know the $1 or $2 for each minute rule. I'd honestly be really happy with grossing $60 per hour. Sometimes I gross more than $60 an hour but more often it is $30+. If I'm not grossing at least $30 I figure I'm falling way behind. According to my wife I should be grateful to gross the $20 an hour. Her logic is cheaper rates = more work = more money. My view on this: $120 to $60 per hour = doing something right -- this is the sweet spot. $30 an hour gross = how can I work more efficiently to increase my bottom line - better faster equipment etc. $20 an hour or less gross = I feel cheapened and used and I'm loosing self respect & dignity. Might as well work for someone else. Last week I bid on a huge clean up job and I ended up making just over $20 and hour but that's my bad - live and learn. Any input?
