Just to see the average gross income for the LCO's on this site.
This year, '06, my company has jumped from the high $200K to the low $400K.
Growth is possible, yet sustained growth is very wearing.
Two more years than broker time. Off to the college classroom after a couple months of traveling with the bird dog, hunting, wenching and total enjoyment!
I think we just did this a couple of months ago. I am at 400-K for 05
i thoought the gross would be a lot higher im in second year and grossing around 100k already i guess i must be doing something right if im doing that at 21 just off of maintenance
Hello JJ,if you think you got good control of your maintance accounts, stop growing that, and start chaseing after the more profitable work[ landscape installs, chemical applications,lawn renovations, trim/shapeing]......you should be able to double last years gross since your expenses should be relative now......a thing to remember is, now is the time you should upgrade your equipment....if your useing WB's get velkys, a power renovator/seeder, a power sprayer,a leaf loader.........see if you can reduce your maintance days due to increased efficiancy.....use your spare days to increase your gross [ but not with maintance].......Keep up the good work
This is my Second year Full time and we are looking to be about the $200,000 range. Maintenance and Some install, All jobs under 5k. But you learn quick, materials and labor add up, and somehow you dont have anymoney in your pocket.
this is my 1st full year and i am looking right now, at 12K profit. if all goes well.
Things are going down the tubes here as we now have another out of town guy coming here to underbid all of our commercial accounts and he is still in business 3 years later. He has taken 2 of mine away now as well as several others from other people. I have been told that he did not have to pay for his truck, equipment or trailer. I was told that it was paid for by a couple grants geared toward displaced workers from the timber industry. He has decent equipment and he does ok work although he is not living up to his contracts yet due to his rates being a third of others and almost half of mine they keep him? Figure that out! Well I am positive that my gross won't even be close to $50K this year. I think I am going to have to practice saying "do you want fries with that"
Truefully Gross doesn't mean squat. Net is the whole can of beans. I could sell 1 million dollar landscape packages and only net 3 cents after labor and materials. Net is the key. Gross 100000 and net 90000, excelent.... Gross 100000 and net 10000, well lets say you would be better off flippin the burgs.
