    Sounds like you have way to much overhead :hammerhead:.
    Then again I havent reached the point of a fleet truck, employee payroll, office space and business property.....
    I could see it getting higher really fast

    How do I figure this out exactly what it would be after I figure out my fixed/variable costs?

    Fixed cost can change, they are fixed because you do not control them. These are typically taxes and insurance.

    Yes a commercial fleet truck. Meaning a fleet of trucks (separate vehicles from personal)

    Fleet means two or more.

    Hence why I got confused when you wrote in singular
