I dare say it's definitely buyer beware, the stories always sound good and they may not be outright lies but I can almost guarantee there's almost always something we're not being told... And it is this something, if we heard it, would suddenly make the story not sound so amazing at all.

You know, $250,000
Yeah, with a crew of eight, $100,000 in parts and supplies expenses...
Taxes of $50,000...
And so on...

But that's the nature of the business, you have to remember, the question asked "what is your gross?"
It didn't ask to give specifics, nor do we really want that.
So, we take what we get and make the best of it we can.
