Im 31 have a wife and two kids. Ive been a full time teacher for the last 8 years and the last 8 years ive also had my business. My wife works but I am the one who pays for almost everything. In 2017 I grossed 59k, 2018 it was 93k and this year ill break 100k. I havent mowed grass in two years (besides my own) and this year I gave up doing apps (im a licesensed pesticide applicator). So the 100k from this year is all installs and dirtwork. I have one part time guy who helps me. He is also a teacher and does construction on his own so I paid him 20/hour and will 1099 him again this year. The thing that bothers me about my current situation is that I turn away sooooo much work. I advertise in march/april and fill out my schedule until the end of august. This year I finished my projects early (two weeks early) so I advertised some more and quickly filled up my fall schedule and now im turning people away until next year. I work weekends and a few evenings in the spring/fall and then I work june/july/august full time. I have all my equipment paid for. f550 truck, 14 foot dump trailer, ditch witch skid steer with all attachments, john deere zero turn with sprayer/spreader. I basically dont need any equipment. I havent been netting a huge amount from those numbers because Ive been growing my business but I really think I can gross 300k if I go full time. What am I waiting for? What am I not thinking about? The economy worries me...because install slow down alot if there is a huge crash but im not gonna live my life in fear and we are pretty much debt free besides our house and our sweet boat. Any advice? Im meeting with an accountant next thursday to talk it over.
