College student needs help!!!

I am doing a presentation in one of my classes on how to start and maintain a small lawn service. I did some calculations for an example of start up costs and i am coming up with a very small profit. For simplicity i assumed in the example that you had the cash to buy mower, trimmer, blower, small trailer, and already had a half-ton pick up truck. I included overhead such as insurance, marketing, maintinance etc...

I know its not likely for most to have the cash to start up, but if you did then it can be possible to make even a small profit right??? or am i missing something here? Just want to make sure i make sense talking in front of a bunch of other students.
