I have a little free time tonight... well I'm honestly just procrastinating finishing estimates.

I'm working on a three part blog/vlog for emb about pricing an margins and I'm curious of many how many of you guys actually know your margins and if you set your hourly rate to hit goals and operate or just saw a post that you charge $30 per cut or $14 per sqft on a paver job. I see so many post on FB of guys asking on pricing and they don't know what their cost of doing business is or how to figure out a labor rate with profit fix in.

Input? I'm not knocking anyone, just looking to get an informational thread going for guys in the EMB world.

I know my pricing on a lot of our services. I think knowing this helps out when you bid on a job.

Knowing your numbers is a must. I have met quite a few guys that say they run at ****% then when you start breaking it down it they haven't taken out what they pay themselves yet. Seems awkward but I find it the most common mistake when helping someone figure out heir numbers.
But once you get a handle on where your numbers really are you can take that info and grow so much faster.
