    I also posted this in the original thread...but I am soooooooo happy about it I had to put it in a new thread.

    After going over and over and back over the figures that we have been discussing, I have found a wonderful (yet idiotic) mistake on my part. The 35000 IS profit after expenses (the 40something thousand)!!!!! I was looking at the spreadsheets wrong when using the figures from one to help make projections on another.

    The short of it is.............AFTER expenses in 2007, my business is projected to have 35000 profit.

    I knew something was wrong!!:hammerhead: :hammerhead: :hammerhead:

    This is proof why you need good bookkeeping practices, and a good accountant.
