He's dead on though. You can spend lots of $$$ without making a dime.

last year my second year in business i spent really close to 10,000 on fuel for 1 truck, 1 mower, and lots of 2 cycle equipment. i know my fuel costs are high, because i had a decent amount of drive time to 1 account, but this year the gaps between lawns are being filled in, which means my profits should go up. but its also my only vehicle, so my accountant subtracted 30 percent of the fuel costs as personal....
