    If your going to take the risk of running a business either full or part time. Make it worth it.

    For you new solo guys. Remember you get paid twice. First your paid as the worker this should be a set rate. I use an hourly rate for myself. This rate is paid just like if you had an employee do the work. Then you get paid as the owner. That is if you priced the job correctly and there is money left after paying the employee and overhead cost.

    If ya just calm down, and take that chip off your shoulder we could discuss this.

    I was simply pointing out how by your own words, you said you make $240 an hr on those little lawns.
    Yep its highly doable. I agree.
    But down further in your paragraph, you state. "On a busy day I can take home $200".
    So.....
    Just doing none PhD math, that works out to about 45 minutes of work.

    I don't give a rip about weekend warrior's everyone has a place.
    I certainly wasn't heckling you, as you tried to claimed.
    Just doing math buddy.

    $240\hour for 5 minutes.

    What about the rest of the day?

    I don't know why I am bothering to ask.

    Someone wiser than me once said: Your only competition is yourself.

    It sucks, I get it. But they will always be there and always have been.

    Are you claiming that precise grammar and punctuation is not necessary in mechanical and/petroleum engineering?
