Forget the Money per hour. He priced jobs high, only does 2-3 days and based on what he’s charged for those jobs he pockets about 700 a week. I get how you’re breaking it down and it’s technically right. But the jobs he chooses are high earners for people who are willing to pay for quality.
I wouldn't bother explaining it he still won't get it

First post you said you onlworked 5 6 hours that 11 hours 700 pounds so that about 55pound hour. So if I charge 55 hour 5 6 days a week a normal working week 8 hours a day I'd be not far from 100 thousand a year
No one's saying that you can fill a full years work with those sort of jobs. He's ONLY doing the jobs that pay well.

OK if you say so
When you've been grafting 6 days a week for what you think is decent money this is actually quite hard to get your head around. I was charging £200 a day a year ago, then thought I'd chance my arm and raise it to £250, and since lockdown have been quoting £300. I've gone from working 5 days a week for £1000 to 3 days a week for £900, and I'm still turning away work, could earn £1500 a week if I wanted or up my day rate further but I'm happy I've found a happy medium. You're working 6 days, not seeing your family as much all because you won't just wack an extra £100 on your day rate

I love it when people argue about earnings,
Just because you've got the same profession
Is never gonna mean are you turn the same money,
Some businesses thrive some businesses average some struggle it's that f****** simple

Genuinley...I've lost the knack...I need to go back to old school basics and start back at beginning with 2 proper coats from separate mixes.

I just cant ever be arsed to mix up again so blast it 1 coat on board at best same mix laid back in and either I've become shite or I just cant make it work anymore.

Just cant face adding extra couple of hours to each day with fresh mixes.

Think I need to pack tools up and become a lolly pop man!

Thoughts? G.A.Y & LIKE FUCKIN FACEBOOK
