That is tricky to say profit when done, I mean when taking into consideration cost of doing business, advertising, etc. I may have a weekend where I profit $800 but my business did not make that. I am making money but my business is not and what I mean by that is if the business paid me say $12 per hour wage for every hour I work to manage it then it would be bankrupt. So therefore I need to find a way to make the business turn a profit or else all I have done is created a 2nd job. Make sense?
