I Make 6K A Month...

by 43 comments
... but seeing as my business model sucks, I have over heads, taxes, staff, supply costs, marketing, hosting, re-investment costs and I have to feed the gimp in the cellar my profit is only $1,230.00

That generally covers my rent which means its keeps the Mrs off my back and every so often when The store has a special, we can afford to eat canned beans!

I hope you enjoyed seeing how easy it is to fool people. Maybe not so much "fooling" as simply not being completely open and honest.

How much you make, earn, turn over, have in the bank, have in your sock drawer, under your bed or in your piggy bank is very different to how much profit you make and have left over once all is said and done.

So the next time you see someone touting how much they "Make" it may be a good idea to ask them how much they actually have in profit

I know i'm cynical, but this just might help some of the newbies.

Good luck!

    Time to make 60k Andrei

    You are very correct in your words, profit is not turnover and turnover, is not FREE!

    That's why I'm trying to build a business that has very little overheads.

    Increase your volume or frequency of sales and those should not longer be issues.

    Yes, you are right. It's easily been fooled if you buy those 'Make $xxxxxx a day/week/month. The truth is, you need alot of cash to earn that money.

    A great example is the CPA business. You can earn alot, but you also will have to spend alot to get that kind of money.

    Pretty funny.
    I don't find it surprising that a lot of people was drawn to this thread (including me). Some are curious and some really do wanna earn that much money the easy way.

    Could you spare a few bucks for Andrei

    Are you fooling us Ben or is it just Aussie humour wasted!

    It's also rather common for impressive claims to be made which state gross volume of affiliate sales as opposed to the affiliate commision that was actually earned from those sales!

    I have a feeling you're right, though I wouldn't call it humor. I just don't get it.

    Clever post. Surely there must be a couple of ways you could maybe lower your costs though? That is quite a small margin you have.

    What you make and what you profit are two very different things. I actually do not have that much overhead but would be much richer if I didn't have to pay taxes!

    Dude! If you got rid of the Mrs, and lowered your standards for housing and transportation a little, that $1200+ every month could buy you a powerful gaming PC that you could use to play WoW at all hours when you're not working your online business. WoW's only $15/mo, which is MUCH cheaper than a wife and/or kids. Or so I hear...I don't have a wife and/or kids...

    Andrei,

    You are so right and I think about this all the time. Especially from people who make way more than that, I often wonder what their expenses are, or how much they put back into their business. It's no surprise there people that easily bring in even 5 figures a month and still aren't living the "good life" necessarily.
