    $1000 a week before expenses isn't going to leave you with much. As the old saying goes; "don't quit your day job"

    Not sure if I understand somthing............you are taking over someone elses accounts? But you are going to let him continue to bill? Suggest you re think that part of the relationship through.

    Capescaper, I agree with Capital on this one, sounds like a recipe for trouble.

    I make $1000 a week gross. I do it full time and it doesnt leave much at the end of the month after all expenses are paid. Well now we had 4 weeks of no rain so this has been a pretty tough month and on top of that quarterly taxes are due soon (but I put away for that) But on the other hand if I did this and another job it would be a tough scedule for me to keep. Doing it full time I feel I can give a little more attention to my customers. Kinda rambling here but If you can make it on 1000 a week then go for it.
