We reached the 100k level few years back. My goal is to try to gross about 50k more each year(we did 154k last yr)to the point where im at about 250k. At that point Ill probably level out....the profit margins go down as your company excedes this point. My goal is not to have the largest company and the most toys...rather large profits that I can invest. By going at it this way, ultimatly my investments will be paying me while I sleep.

Stoan,
I agree with Kent, if you only pocket $100k (net) from a million dollars(gross) something is terribly wrong, big time! i mean, you are only getting 10 cent off every dollar you earn. Man, thats the worst $100k i've ever heard of...

Mr. Stone according to my calculations you must be making $60/hr on average 10 hrs/day 5 days/week 8 mo/yr to clear 100k before tax's. CHA CHING . Great job. If you can do that send me an e-mail I would like to buy you dinner and find out how you do this. I am in southeast Pa can't be anymore than 1 1/2 hrs from the farthest points in Jersey.

You probalby wont believe me but my second year i only made about 16K. This year if things go well in the last couple of months, then i expect to reach between 45 to 50K.

I had a good year.
