save it as a doc file and then you could attach it. Also that would allow more people to use it.

I created a download page on my site.

Here (http://breezelawnservice.ca/Downloads/DLpage.html)


SO basically, fill in all of the information you have within lines 2 - 24.


Income/Season is an estimate which tells you what you would have made if the client was with you for a full season rather than the client starting mid season, etc.

Deducted Estimated Total tells you how much income you didn't make, due to late starting clients.

For example: If I charge a client $5 for 6 months I would make $30.00, if the client has only been with me for 4 months, that means I didn't make $10.00.

Income/Season: $30.00
Deducted Estimated Total: $10.00
Actual Total: $20.00


**** There are several things in this file that are useful;

1. Track how long it takes you to complete a job/Week (min/hour)
2. Find out how many hours/minutes you are using per week/month
3. Find out how many hours you have available within a week (8hr shifts x 5 days)

4. Find out how much you make per hour/week/month

5. Find out how much money you have made per each month, and which month was your strongest (Chart included).



Page two is similar, though you just add in your expenses and the MM/DD/YYYY beside it.




ANYWAY, to help you understand - the MAY-OCTOBER sections are used only when payment has been received from your customers.

I'm also making a program that has the similar features.
Here (http://breezelawnservice.ca/programs/Business%20Manager%20Beta.html)

Right now it has nothing, but it needs;

1. Ability to add information
2. Toolbar (save, print, and calculate totals)
3. Window which shows calculated totals of all things listed, also in graph form
4. Add Client button, to add more than 20 customers.
5. Extra pages for expenses, staff, etc....


It's a work in progress! I'm very excited!
