    What felt like a slow winter/first 5 months turned out to be 10k ahead of our last year's total, when it "felt" like 20 K less due to the extra mouf to feed.

    May is going to be our best yet with a 568 job total and probably 140 new work orders


    How are you goobers looking?

    First quarter had too many peaks and valleys.

    It's also been a dry Spring, not many storms. The grass could use some rain. :smile:

    I was seriously stressing in the first quarter. Now I’m balls to the wall.

    Never a happy medium.

    I've done over $4500 since Monday. That's why I had to go out and buy this $3500 astrovan. Can't afford to have a van down now. Once I get my vehicle mess straightened out, I may put an employee in the astro. Easy to use CDS. Very chimp friendly.

    I only have one single minded goal. To get my 870 paid off before winter.

    Jan feb March will make the rest of the year look slow.

    But steady from here on out wouldn’t be shabby.

    Don’t want to clean carpet or tile just want to dry stuff!!!!!!!!!!

    Worst April on Record...one of the best May's on Record.

    Like Marty...no happy medium this year with March and April just killing the start to a good year.

    Jan & Feb we expect slow, but this year was good....then March and April with snow every other day...just killed us.

    Right now...the work load in May and the booked out 2 weeks at a time....that's killing us!

    Need it though to get caught up.

    I can see now why you have your two van per job setup. If you just had two or three guys in just one van, you couldn't' get all the work done when it floods in to you after the big freeze. Your busy times are probably twice as busy as any normal carpet cleaning business with cleanable weather year round

    haven't had any electric disconnect notices this year
    and the cable bill has been paid on time regularly
    Bought more than a few new tools too
    and I had a few bukz left over for a few new guns.....

    so my "Quick bOOks" calcs show it's been a good first half for sure....:winky:

    Should be a record year. I even raised prices a little trying to slow it down some. Also told my web designer to unoptimize my new web site so I'm not working one large city because I'm getting so many calls within 10 miles of home now it's ridiculous.

    It's another Friday and my main van is still in the shop. Waiting for a computer. Little astro van is bailing me out but I'm afraid it will pack it in before I can get it serviced. Got to say, I love the CDS.

    Lost one employee to a vending firm, accidentally picked up another. I probably gross more in a year than most of you do in a month.
