"i am a bricklayer by trade and thinking about starting my own business. but the problem i have is pricing up jobs. where i train for that? please help"

joseph

"you need to cover your material cost which includes the bricks and anything else you have used. your time and skill is a material also so price that competitively, what hourly rate would you get if you were on the payroll for your trade? add that all together and add profit to it, maybe 50-80% i think is fair and average, then dont forget to add the VAT afterwards if you charge VAT."

Steve
