I read about every post on here in the last 6 months ,and have read a bunch about knowing your costs to determine how much profit (and hourly rate) you are making. So my question is: how much is your monthly ,weekly ,daily (however you want to break it down) costs. If you are a part timer like myself are your costs less therefore your hourly rate profit higher than someone full time ,or does it matter? If you are a one man show it seems to me your hourly profit would be higher ,but I'm only in my first year so what do I know. I think it's good advice to break it down so you know what you're really making. If you have to go out and buy everything , I mean truck ,trailer ,mowers ,trimmers ,blowers etc. it would take longer to break even , but if you are a part timer or I guess even if you are a full timer one big expense might already be covered (your truck). So what all do you figure in to get your break even point or does it really matter as long as you have a positive cash flow?
