Ive saw a lot of threads about struggling to net over 100k as a solo operator. Heres my math. What am i doing wrong?... This is not cutting yards but just spraying and fert.... Say you run a route of 6 weeks. You visit each yard 8 times per year. (i know up north you dont go 8 times) Thats 30 days mon-fri. 8 of those 30 days rain or wind. so you work 22 days on avg for the 6 week route. I can do 30 yards a day if my route it tight as i have a ride on. so 22 days X 30 a day = 660 yards in 6 weeks. On avg you make 30 bucks a yard after fert and pre cost. all diff size yards aywhere from 150.00 down to 40.00 my avg i figure 30.00 per yard. 660 yards X 30.00/yard = 19,800 X 8(times a yr) = 158,400 thats your gross right? Minus 48,000 in taxes your at 110,400.00 for your net. Yes this is with no truck payment and no business debt. insurance about 6k per year for all. your net after all expenses in 104,400.00. Now, Is my math wrong or am i correct on this? If you throw in aerating in the summer (for bermuda) you can make another 5 or 6 thousand. Where am i going wrong here?
