Would you quit mowing or would you have ever started if you were making or could have made this?
40k ...funny, i havn't made so little since i was 18 yrs old. oh, except for last year, i made $17,242 . no, 40 k is poverty level.
why so little last year? what happened to all those million $$$ ideas? or is that just what the paper you filed said you made? just given you some more crap. keep up the interesting posts.
Depends on were you live.
Is this 40K before or after taxes?
Either way, the answer is no, Matt quit a job where he was making more than that selling tires to start our business.
Wanna hear the sad truth???
The nationwide average income for "taxpaying" lawn and landscape contractors is $35,000.
I made more than 40k working for someone else. However, it is NOT about the money, it is about happiness. If you are happy with where you are working, then that affects most aspects of your life in a positive way. I was unhappy working for someone else so I quit as it was impacting my personal life, there is nothing like going home every day pissed off. $$ helps, but it isn't a permanent fix for happiness.
honestly, you cant live off 40k. atleast around here you cant unless you REALLY REALLY conserve, or live in detroit
tires, i bought some from a guy named matt.
That breaks down to about $19.50 per hour.
Depending on where you live in the country that figure might be really good or really bad.
As a solo operator you could expect between double to triple that hourly figure, but you can generally only count on those rates 6-9 months out of the year.
Personally I would not give up the business to go make 40K a year as that would be a huge step back-wards.
