    I just did a quick report from Quickbooks for total sales for last year and learned that our total sales grew by over 70K last year over the previous year. I thought that was pretty cool.

    I don't know what profits will end up being. Haven't figured that yet.

    But I was just curious what rate others are growing at. So far, our 2002 looks good too. Our January sales are 40% higher in sales than last January.

    Where's this recession everyone's talking about?

    Our gross sales in 01' were up nearly $100,000 from the 00' year. January 02' sales are up big from 01' pervious sales because we did a good amount in Tree Work (due to inclement weather) and had (2) pushable snow storms. Hopefully the same will follow for Feb, and Mar.

    My sales were $10,000.00 less in 01 than 00 but I was less stressed.

    We were up 79% over last year. This was our second year. If we can pull off another year like that - well, that would be nice:D

    I will be happy with any double digit increases from here on out.

    Sales up 91.7% Net income up 490%

    I guess these figures are kindof expected though, since it was only our 2nd year. This year should be even better. Yeah, the recession doesn't seem to be hurting maintenance much, does it.

    Gross up 50.3

    Net up 62.6

    I'd be real happy with the same numbers for 2002 :)
