    a friend of mine has an offer that if he takes his truck and his plow and goes to a town about 45 min. away the contractor will pay him $50 an hour from the time he steps out his door until the time he walks back in. its money the next day BUT the guy also mails a tax form. does this sound like a good price to you??? or is it to cheap? he figures that if he could get some residential drives and charge $25-$30 a plowing and he could do like 3 an hour. tell me what you all think

    Sounds like a good deal. But make sure you put 10 or so $ away for the taxs. Put it in the bank and make some money off it it while it sits there.
