What would you do in this situation? I have a friend who runs a lawn care business. He currently has around 50 accounts. His wife is from another country and sometimes in the winter he subs out his snow plowing and they stay with her parents for 3 months. He now wants to be able to go out of the country for several months during the summer and sub out his mowing. He would be around during spring then be gone Jun-Sep, then return for fall work and plowing. He has approached me about doing his work as a subcontractor during the summer months. (I will be a true subcontractor as I will have my own business, equipment, accounts, etc. so that is not an issue for discussion here.) The question is what pricing arrangement should I consider for mowing his accounts. I was thinking about an arrangement where he takes a certain percentage of the gross and then I get the rest. Annother factor to keep in mind is that I am starting my own business and even though I already have some accounts lined up I could probably use the extra work, so both of us could benefit from the right arrangement. What do you think make sense? Thanks in advance for any responses.
