ok, i've heard here that the target for most of you, cutting grass, is $60, per man, per hour. frankly, i don't believe most of you are meeting that goal, or even close, UNLESS, you are doing big factories, or large acerage where u stop and spend alot of time, rather than moving around. doing medium residentials, like we do, it's almost imposible to generate that kind of dough. i don't care how fast, how efficient, what you're using, it just won't happen. that is, if you are doing lawn service, in the conventional fashion. BUT, as most of you are aware, i've devised a system that now produces almost twice as many lawns cut per day, in the same amount of time as before. so, for the sake of discussion, let's use the $60 per man hour target. let's just say, you are currently meeting that goal, and your 2 man crew is grossing $960 per day . that's: 2 men x $120 per hr x 8 hrs. =$960. ok, now, if you found a way, that your same two man crew, could generate $220 per hour, would you: #1- work shorter days, make your $960 in 4.3 hrs, and enjoy the off time. #2- establish another 2 man crew, run both of the crews 8 hrs each per day, and make alot of money while generating $440 an hour. #3- lower your prices, pass some of the savings back to the customer. #4- advertise heavily, get more work, eliminate your competition by lowering your prices, while at the same time increasing your profits, ALOT, and eventually own the market in your area. what would the common lawnboy do, with a system that showed him how to almost double his daily gross, while working easier? i thought of it, and it made me think of the movie, "brucealmighty", where god gave bruce the power, and bruce couldn't handle it, he wreaked havoc, and eventually it needed to be taken away. what would you do?
