In researching business plans, I came across an interesting rule of thumb. Add up your living and business costs for one month, then divide that number by 80; that gives you your hourly rate (without profit). The idea is that you will work 80 paid hours per month (20 paid hours per week). Of course, you will actually work more than that — doing your accounting, taking classes and training, maintaining your equipment, practicing and experimenting — but you should count on only 20 paid hours per week.
