My business is 18 months old, been a plumber for 10 years or so. August was a record breaker! Sept. was pretty good, Myself and 2 other trucks doing the road work, I'm starting to step back and do more office stuff/marketing/networking etc. September - 32K in sales, Aug 38k in sales, October 31k. nov. to be about 28k, if trends continue. I'm happy overall. My biggest problem is profitability! It's really tough to put money in the bank, or wherever. As income rises, so does output! Do any of you have good experience with this? Shall I set aside 5% first? Any suggestions? Also, do you pay your techs commission or hourly? So many questions, so little time! Thanks!
