    I am posting a poll? The question is for a Solo Operation. How much can 1 person make after everything is deducted.
    Net Pay. I know that how many accounts etc. etc. comes in
    effect, but I will like to know with the right accounts etc. etc. How much can be made? NET !!!!
  2. How much is by how hard YOU are willing to work. Plain and simple!!!

    LGF, I would think everybody is willing to work hard.........
    Not the answer I am looking for...... Thanks anyway need #'s
  4. There are so many veriables, that numbers won't make a bit of differance.

    If you want answers now, search for "Solo Income"

    Might be a few pages back, and if I'm not mistaking you started it.

    EG: If you grossed $60 solo you had better of netted $35k.

    That will take some work to do, and if you work harder and a lot more it can be more.

    Damn Skippy I started the last thread, but this is a poll ?????
    "Solo Income" Did not help last thread was me DUH !!!!!

    That is the "differance " My bad "difference"
  6. Damn skippy smart ass, since you are MR. Perfect on the spelling, I guess you can do your own searching for the answers.

    I guess there is no need for my help.

    I know the answers are in the arcives!!!!

    Your numbers and many other's numbers are not going to be the same.

    Even the ball park numbers aren't going to be close.

    I think the question has been answered at least 2 times in this thread already.

    Location also has a big role in income. For example, my actual mowing season is less than up north and down farther south. So, if its grass cutting only, my #'s would be different. In florida your prices are usually lower than mine though.

    As a solo, after you get established your expenses yearly will be small. Every year your profit will rise. LGF is right. It really depends on how hard you work. Not just in the manual labor sense. Work hard at conserving cash and expenses. You could make 20k in revenue or 100k in revenue. Kinda depends on you. I know a lot more people that work "harder" than me. Meaning more hours, but I'm much more profitable. As a solo, it really is up to you and your business choices.

    Nelson,Don't get up-set ,these guys are right...nets will be all-over the place.....If a man wants to grow his business (like me) he will likely be adding new equipment each year for the first 5 years or so....many other things will also come into play as stated above.All of this will change the nets in your poll.
  9. These guys are in the wrong trade.
