Breaking $250,000!? The year is just about half over. Who out there is breaking over 250k or more a year in gross sales? I know this is a meaning less number unless other factors are in place such as number of employees and expenses such as, assets, materials, insurance, ect. But it does start breaking into the barrier of critical mass (enough money to do more, very important or crucial stage). Actually according to the SBA it is now 1 million dollars. I have been in the business about 15 years and find it tough to break $200,000 with an average of 3 employees and myself. We cut lawns/maintenance 50% and do installs50%. We even sell Christmas trees in December. Jan and Feb are our relaxing months. Just want to know what is realistic in this biz. Maybe someone is doing $150,000 by themselves? Breaking $250,000!?
