Mike is that per week or month?
We ain't no Billy Hicks.
Winter months $500 a week is common. Summer months $1500 to $3500 is normal.
$100 month for advertising the last two years, before that almost nothing. No vehicle payments t all. Very low cost of living here.
If I add Gennys numbers it's about double.we are close to combining both businesses.
Is that an average for the year or peak months? 200-250k per truck would be amazing with solo techs. I know you guys do quite a bit of commercial also
That's average for the year. Includes our commercial and some rug cleaning as well.
most won't admit it, but figure most one man show O/Ops average $300 a day for a 300 day work day year
If they're the "workaholic" type, they can double that with "normal" pricing ($30-$60 rm pricing structure)
those guys own a pretty good "job"
(not implying there's a thing wrong with that, just that there's no "biz to sell" when they want to hang up the wand)
that's rockin for sure for a one man show
I think it unrealistic for a one man show to sustain $350K a year though .
You're going to kill your body well before it's time and never see your family to boot
We run two vans on a LOT of jobs, then we split up for the smaller stuff.. We have been killing commercial jobs this year! I just have one full timer, and me.. I need another guy!! Last job today was $400, and we were finished in an hour(two vans, two guys).. When you take the first step and hire someone train them quick and get them on their own, so you can split up to service all calls. If I want to give my guy hours, we work together(I try to keep him at 40 hours or more).
I f'd up my back last week and everything got done,my wife even went out with my tech for a day(now she knows how to schedule)! I took off the whole week.. A great friend of mine in the area cleaned two rentals which was clutch, but everything else went as planned..
I'm all about saving money, as long as it doesn't effect production..
All year average $4,000 per week, the winter is slow here..
You know,I feel guilty when I see my employees YTD on his check stub.. I gave him a raise today!
Does he talk more or less now?!?
"You know _______, I can pay you more if you just shut the hell up and clean"
"Less chatter, more splatter"
That is the next c0nversation!!
Oh dam, i guess im doing ok..
I remember my first part time job...
