I have some experience working in the field with a company many years ago. I also do a very small amount of side work now. Is there a formula that will give me a rough estimate of what I can expect to earn by, say, each account?Then I can then just multiply by the amount of accounts I would need to make what I require? I understand this would be a VERY rough estimate. I am checking into an insurance estimate right now. I have a truck and trailer, a 21, backpack, and a weed eater. I know this would get me started, but I will need much more equipment down the road. My plan would be to buy as much of the equipment now with my current job before I made the plunge. I am thinking about starting this on the side until I had a substantial amount of business and then dropping my day job. I am growing very tired of corporate America I know this venture would be anything but easy, but I can handle the manual work, but need to get out of what I am currently doing for a living. I would like to hear from some Cali guys to get an apples to apples idea but there does not appear to be many on this board?? Thanks in advance guys! I will have more questions down the road.
