We literally are just starting and recently turned on our machine for the first time. However, going into this, we’re committed to following the Profit First system by Mike Michalowicz.
We plan on offering roof washings, soft washings, surface cleaning, window cleaning, and gutter cleaning. Seeing as our fixed overhead is pretty low at $500/mo, including insurance, vehicle, etc. what’s a good TAP for Profit, OP, Tax, and OE to start?
I was thinking: 1% Profit, 34% OP, 15% Tax, 50% OE
Keep in mind, we really don’t want to go backwards ever on Profit and would like to scale as quickly as possible.
Also, just for our clarity…what does one do if we suddenly had a $5000 month right out of the gate and have $2500 leftover in the OE account. Do we just carry that forward, dump it into marketing or what?
