Did you know that if you charge $1 a brick and things go bad you should still be able to lay 500 brick on a decent wall. On an average day you can lay 800 brick. I've laid 2100 brick on a perfect wall with perfect help perfect mortar and perfect brick once.
Even at 500 brick 5 days a week that's $2500 a week $10000 a month and that's $120,00 a year. Suppose you do the average amount of brick a bricklayer can do which is 800 per day. That's $4000 a week and $16,000 a month and that's over $160,000 a year.
Suppose you add 10, 20, 30 super days where you lay 2000 brick a day. Suppose you work 6 or 7 days a week. Suppose you hire another bricklayer, maybe 10, 20, 30 bricklayers to help you. You could make as much money as the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds eh? Oh well so much for philosophy.
The trick is to try and find that many customers and perfect days and perfect walls to work on and you soon find out that on paper it's great!! In the real world it's impossible. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'd be the happiest guy on earth if I could just pay a few bills now and again with enough left over to go out to eat. Ha ha!
If this ever changes, I'll brag and brag and brag and I'll buy poor people Hot Dog Carts.
