There is no reasonable hourly rate. Pay a flat rate for a satisfactory job. In a teen’s mind, an hourly wage is an excuse to drag a job out longer than needed. Set a fixed price and an obvious goal or end-point for the job.
I'm not sure what skills you have or what industry you work in (or are studying for), so I'll make some assumptions: You can suck up your pride and deflate your ego for a while. You know how to wash a car. Tutorial: You know how to trim Rake leaves. You have $150 to invest. (You can borrow it if you must. It a lot easier than borrowing the $1,000 you need.) There are people in your area that would appreciate a clean car and front yard and/or backyard. Buy a manual lawn mower for $95: ,http://amzn.com/B00002N691, (You can probably pick one up on Craigslist for $50 or so). Buy car washing supplies (2 buckets, microfiber rags, soap, sponge, wax).This should cost ~$40 On your computer, design and print some bulletin flyers for your car wash service with tear out phone numbers on the bottom. Make it a cheap price(~$15) and add a "free wax this month only" special. Post them at your local businesses. Do the same for lawn mowing service. The special could be "Free driveway sweep with front yard lawn mowing". Go to at least one different neighborhood every day and offer your services. Expect about 1 out of every 10 people to hire your services.. For the other 9, If they say not right now, or something to that extent, ask the if you can follow up in a week. If they're flat out not interested, ask them if they anyone that might want a car wash. This should bump up your sales rate from 10% to at least 30%. If they ask why an adult is going around door-to-door offering car washes and lawn-mowing, just be honest. Tell them you need the money, and don't want to get into debt for it. It may even help your sales! Above all, don't lose hope. You can do this.
On ,average,, ,mowing, your ,lawn, ranges Most companies ,charge, a flat rate per visit for grass cutting based on hourly rates or the size of your property. Expect more fees for services like edging, leaf-blowing or seasonal cleanup visits.
It’s been ten years since I was in business but back then, I was charging $35 dollars per man hour. Sometimes I worked alone and other times I had helpers. Most customers would want me to give them a flat rate when I came out to look at property. This is where most lawn guys get into trouble. They tend to underestimate all the work it takes to do a good job. They guess at it and then, after a few cuts, they realize they’re not making any money. But the customers tend to be very savvy and will play one guy against another for the best rates. So, I would play the same game but I would also explain to the customer that, after I’ve cut the yard a couple of times, I might need to change my prices. Then, when I cut the yard, I would time it from the time I dropped the gate on the trailer to the time I raised the gate on the trailer. I would include everything - mowing, trimming and blowing off the walks, porches, patios and drives. If I ran the numbers and my $35 per man hour wasn’t there, I’d then know how much I needed to make and I would put it to the customer. The customer could either say yes or no. Most new guys don’t have the courage to do this because they need the work bad enough that they will agree to anything. If you use this solution, the larger the property, the harder it will be to make the numbers work. The real money for a new guy is in the subdivisions where the yards are quarter acre and you can get them done quickly. You’ll need less equipment and can save a lot of costs. Stay away from large commercial properties and acre plus sized yards. You can tackle them a few years down the road when you’ve gotten yourself established.
How Much Can You Earn? Many lawn care entrepreneurs earn $5,000 to $50,000 in their first year. And once they've been in business a while, they can earn as much as $160,000 to $250,000. So, owning a lawn care business has a lot of profit potential. On average, mowing your lawn ranges between $30 and $80 per visit. Most companies charge a flat rate per visit for grass cutting based on hourly rates or the size of your property. Expect more fees for services like edging, leaf-blowing or seasonal cleanup visits.
Yes, but it is (like all businesses) dependent on the amount a work, time, money, research, anf effort you put into it as well as other factors like your local economy, connections, and competition. In terms of profit, you simply need to make more than what you put into it. If you already have a truck you can get the necessary equipment for $10,000 or less (riding mower, push mower, trailer, string trimmers, backpack and handheld leaf blowers, etc.) Outside of maintenance and repairs your primary business expenses will be on gas/oil and labor. You can easily get away with charging $30 a man hour for labor if you know what you’re doing (many companies do $50) for most projects except for lawn mowing which people normally want a flat rate on. So if you and one hired hand whom you pay $15 an hour work for 60 minutes, you’re earning $45/ hour. Obviously your business expenses cut into this and until you build a network you might not have 40 hours worth of work when you start out, but in a perfect world you could feasibly hire an employee and make your money back on the original investment in 230ish hours (a little over a month of busy weeks.) After that, you’re making decent money for someone with no degree or certified skill/ apprenticeship. Once you get to this point the sky is the limit provided the market for it exists in your area and you have the skill and dedication to expand. The owner of the smallest company I know makes a solid $500-1,000 profit every week. Some make six figures every year even after they pay their employees. So yes,landscaping is certainly a profitable business, it’s just not as necessarily easy as some people expect.
That depends on what you're willing to do, but the one that comes to mind is cleaning work. You can actually make pretty decent money. Just be up-front about what you're willing to do (for a flat fee) and what will cost a client extra. Don't be afraid to survey the house after you get there to ensure you're charging the right price for the amount it will take you. For example, I hired someone to clean up my house after I moved. There were two people, and they did a decent job. I think it took them an hour and a half and I paid $150. Not a bad hourly rate. My grandmother used to have a job as a maid for about 3 wealthy families. She'd come in once a week, clean thoroughly (she was fast) and it would take her about 6 hours for the big house and she would be paid quite well. Same type of thing for lawn mowing and landscaping. The only thing is usually you need a team of two or three people to accomplish it efficiently. But worth looking into as well. If you're handy and know some construction, you could also get licensed as a contractor and advertise yourself for home improvement projects.
Helping People with Computers Using a computer may seem second-nature to you, you darn millennial-Gen-XYZ whippersnapper. But for many people who aren’t “digital natives,” it’s not so easy. Instead of making fun of your grandpa for not knowing how to use his iPad, why not see if you can turn your knowledge into some extra cash? The possibilities here are only limited by your creativity and what people will pay for. Just a few ideas: Make PowerPoints for your less than tech-savvy professors (a former professor reached out to me about this just the other day) Give a class on computer basics at a local retirement home or community center Start your own IT business that makes house calls (a friend of mine made one contact in college who paid him around $200/month for very basic computer help. The guy was pretty wealthy, but knew nothing about computers.) Investing Your Money I’ll state this up front: Compared to every other method on this list, investing will take ,by far ,the longest amount of time to make you an extra $1,000 a month. Still, you should seriously consider investing as early as you possibly can. Here’s why: ,Investing means putting your money to work for you., Every other method here requires you to essentially trade hours for dollars; investing allows you to sit back as the money you have invested grows due to compound interest. And the sooner you get started, the more that compound interest will benefit you. Yardwork This category covers everything that people don’t want to do in their yards. People tend to associate yardwork with warm-weather activities such as lawn mowing, but it can also include things like shoveling snow and picking up dog poop. With these activities, you can stay busy earning money all year round. Pro-tip: When I was a teenager, I stood out from the other teenage lawn-mowing businesses by BUNDLING dog poop pick-up and lawn mowing. Differentiating yourself is key! How you price this work is up to you — you can charge a flat rate based on the size of the yard (this works well for mowing or snow shoveling) or an hourly rate (which is best if you don’t know how long the work will take). As long as you charge enough, you can hit your extra income goals with only a few hours of work per week. Get more details about: ,make $1,000 online per week
Depending on where you live, you could get a lawn mower and go door to door in your neighborhood offering to mow lawns for the summer. I've known a number of people who actually started very successful landscaping businesses by cutting neighborhood grass all summer. If you know how to do websites, you can go through local businesses, talk to the owners, and offer to do a website for them - work out the hosting, any shopping cart system, etc. Offer them a low flat rate for the work, but ask that if they're happy with it, they come up with additional payment (work out the details with them in advance).
You definitely don’t have to be rich to start a business. You’re in the perfect position. By your late twenties you should have some life smarts under your belt and still be young enough to take some risks without jeopardising your family. One of the best gateways to getting started as an entrepreneur is consulting or ‘fee for service’ business. What can you do for other businesses or individuals that they would be willing to pay for? What skills do you have? Here’s how I would do it. 1) Pick your service, You don’t have to be the best or be an expert in something to offer it as a service to others. People are happy to pay for things if you can give them answers, save them time or effort, and allow them to focus on their own business goals or quality of life… alleviate a pain for them. At the beginning try and pick a service market that has the lowest barrier to entry for you. Base it on the skills you have. Don’t pick something that requires you to do months of training, certifications, or other work. Don’t put hurdles in front of yourself. The more hurdles, the higher the chance that you’ll never get started…. and believe me, getting started is the hardest part. If you really have a blank slate in front of you and you’re willing to give anything a go, or you don’t think that you have any discernible skills that folks might pay for, consider lawn mowing, gardening, car washing, painting, handyman services etc. Truly, every industry you could possibly think of provides an opportunity to build a successful business and become a millionaire. 2) Get started, Hustle. Seriously. You’ll be stunned at how easy it is once you get comfortable with marketing yourself. Pick a market for your service. It helps if you narrow the field down to something small and tangible in the beginning to focus your marketing efforts. The narrowing of the market allows you to provide a niche service by specializing. Consider you past work experience and whether it can be applied to your market moving forward. i.e. maybe you’re starting a cleaning service, but you’ve only ever flipped burgers for minimum wage. You could specialise in providing cleaning services to small take-away and restaurant businesses. Think back to your past experience flipping burgers and all the hassles you, your boss and your co-workers had with the cleaners… was coordinating them a nightmare? Communicating with them? Paying them? Were they disorganised? Were they unprofessional? What one or two big things can your new business offer to addresses those problems? Now you can prepare your marketing material… “Hi, I’m Joe. After years working in the fast food industry, seeing and experiencing the frustration of working with shoddy cleaning crews, I decided to do something about it. My business ‘XYZ Cleaning’ focusses on restaurants like yours. We provide professional cleaning services for the foods industry without the hassle of….” And then you identify and solve the problems you thought of above. If you don’t have past experience at all, or your chosen service doesn’t relate back to your experience in any way, narrow the potential clients you’re marketing to in a logical way instead. i.e. if you’re starting a lawn mowing business it would make sense to focus your marketing initially on one or two affluent suburbs around your area. That is your focus. Your target market will dictate your marketing. You should focus your business advertising, marketing, proposals and even your logo to be appealing or at least sensitive to that market. Once you have your market and your marketing pitch sorted, work out the best way of contacting those people. If its lawn mowing, a mailbox drop in your targeted areas will be better than calling everybody at home. If it’s cleaning restaurants, dropping by in person, or calling them on the phone might be the best method. If it’s larger businesses in the city, email or phone might be the best wat to reach out. The golden things to remember are: You will get rejected. Once in a while you will encounter someone who is flat out rude to you. It will take a lot of time and effort to get every single client for your business. Most people will be completely indifferent or uninterested in what you have to offer initially. You need to persist. You need to keep going. Keep a list of all the people you’ve contacted, when you contacted them, and the outcome of the contact. All of them . Seriously. If you get no reply to a first contact, maybe getting in touch with them again as a reminder a week or two later is appropriate? Log the second contact as well. You’ll start to see patterns emerge which give you confidence and intelligence around your marketing moving forward. eg. Maybe 1 person in every 25 you speak to, on average, asks you for a proposal. And maybe 1 in every 4 proposals you send out get accepted and turn into a real contract / paid work. Then you know that you need to speak with at least 100 people for every paid job you get. You always need to be sharpening your marketing tactics. Listen carefully to every person you pitch your services to. If you start to hear similar answers from multiple people about problems they are having, or problems they are NOT having, adjust your marketing to suit Make marketing to new potential clients a priority every day. Use the first couple of hours in the morning to contact 20 new leads. Keep growing your list, keep improving your marketing / pitch. The reason for listing all your contacts and details is not just for seeing patterns and calculating your conversion rates. You need to pitch your services to these exact same people again. You’ll need to consider what’s best for each scenario… if you’re marketing lawn mowing using pamphlets, maybe you should do another letterbox drop to the same people every 3-6 months. If you’re emailing law firms maybe you would contact them again in 12 months. You’ll need to work out what’s best for your market. Again, track the results. Rinse, repeat. 3) Grow your business, If you hustle every day, and you’re providing a good service to your clients it won’t take long to grow your business. The first three months normally feel like you’re going nowhere so you need to persevere, but after that things will start moving forward consistently. As you grow you’ll want to consider expanding your potential markets… The other suburbs nearby? Other types of businesses related to the ones you were originally focussed on? Adjust your marketing to suit. 4) Take it to the next level…., The consulting / services business you’ve created is a gateway. You can happily and very profitably expand and run this type of business for all of your life…. BUT… the old adage “you don’t become rich working for a living” is absolutely true. And it doesn’t just apply to working for someone else. Swapping an hour of your time for a dollar value can be lucrative, but ultimately you’ll want to work out a way to leverage that further. In the services industry trading money for value instead of time is the way to do it. This is something you’ll need to think long and hard about, and look at your competitors for tips. How can you grow and adjust your business to get paid contracted fees, preferably on a recurring basis, for outcomes/value, rather than the service itself. All of these steps apply to any service business you start... whenther you're a lawyer, a cleaner, an IT pro or a builder. While you’re doing all of this stuff you should also read everything you can about your industry, your competitors and about starting and operating a consulting or services based business. The most important tip of all.... GET STARTED TODAY! Good luck.
