Next year I will be a two-man crew, me and one employee (at least to start). I read over the posts regarding hourly rates, but would like something clarified. If I am working towards running the business end eventually, but will do the work for now, should my pricing change for if the crew does or doesn't include me? Example: Say I will bill around $50/hr. for myself and $35/hr for my employee. Next year I hire two more employees (run two 2-man crews), and if I keep the same $35/hr, this will be an hourly gross of $70 as opposed to $85. If I have a property that me and employee are doing this year that takes an hour and we get $85, but the other two guys do it next year, does that mean I just make more per hour? Also, if I were in the position of 3 employees, do I bid work if I were going to do the job, or if they were going to do it, if I am still working with one of the employees. Sorry it seems so confusing, I just don't really know how to explain it more easily.
