    I hear alot about bidding and pricing on this forum, and what some people would consider "low ballin". Just wanted to know what type of companies, and business men/women were asking these questions and providing answers here on lawnsite.

    All confidential, and no questions pertaining to any one individual. Where do you stand as a company? Last season, or as we sit now?

    2-3 hundredK here (wish I kept more of it though)
    a few years back we were well over 1/2mill, but have downsized our pool division due to lack of qualified help

    I agree with Bobby. I'd like to hear some net figures...especially from solo's.

    I think finding out net will involve too many variables. Aslo in that scenerio, the company as a whole can be grossing $500K, and he as an individual may be taking $40K of it. No way in hell is a company itself grossing that amount with such a little net total. :)

    I am a part timer, solo (sometimes with my wife), and our revenue for this year was $12,000 with a net profit of about $5,000. I even missed the first month of the season, which really hurt me since i had no clients the first month a half.

    I started out with nothing...not even a truck to my name. This business is great for part time....i keep dreaming one day to be full time.

    I don't post very often so people will not recognize the my name. Last year we grossed $198,000 and my net was $71,000. This year we have done about $220,000 so far and my net looks right now to be a lot better than last year as I tried not to purchase any new large toys.
