    This is still kinda useless. What about new equipment purchases, taxes, tax prep, vehicle costs etc.. The list goes on and on. Even though you may own what you plan to use that equipment will still have to be replaced at some point and you have to figure that in now. You should be putting money away for future purchases. It's how good business is done.

    Let's assume just for giggles that your costs will be similar to mine plus your labor.

    Forty hours a week times $19.00 equals $760 plus $640 for labor and another $300 for gas. That's $1700 a week in expenses. Multiplied by 20 weeks is $34,000 a year in expenses. That leaves you $36,000 before FICA (another 15.3% off the top) takes $5500 dollars leaving you with $30,500 net.
