    All I want to know is, is it possible to make $2000 per week solo or non solo?

    What does everyone else make in a week? Just an average or estimate.

    I just need an idea of what to expect my first year in business.

    10 yards per day, 6 days a week $35.00 per yard and you have a income of $2100.00 per week before taxes very doable.

    Counting every other weekers 500 per for about 22 weeks. If you live in the northeast.

    Please tell me what you make after your first year in this thread.

    Yes, it can be done. Your first year you will make very little money though (dumping all of that $$ back into lawn mowers).

    What do you mean? How many mowers did you go thru?
