    i forgot who, but someone on here recently said that grasscutting yields a 10% net. i'm thinking more like 60%. who is doing 10%? who is doing more than 60%? 10% seems extremely low to me

    It's all relative (no pun intended to West Virginia) a 10% profit margin is wonderful for a large company. Smaller hand to mouth company's 40% is closer but then again owners are doing more of the work. Margin and work load are usually related!

    If your business is making 10%, you are doing good - that is after "all" payroll, including your's.

    If you're doing 10, you are way above national average of 3-4%.

    After all, the purpose is to grow your business, not you - right?
