    Try a search,or the FAQ page.It has been discussed over and over.Once you understand the basics,then ask if you have any more questions.

    I may not be a pro but I feel I have enough time behind the wheel.Have been plowing since 1990 with approx 55-60 drives a year.Well I have always felt I made out better per push than contract on the residentials.I have not advertised since 1990 and I have to turn down people because I am a one man show.I think if you do a good job and dependable the money will always be there.just my 2c's.
