    I think you hit the nail on the head. Most guys do not know what profit means.

    How much of a salary do you guys take? Seems like you would want a low salary so as to escape ss and fica taxes.

    Salary should be based on how much you gross and what type of "HATS" you are wearing. Multiple hats means you are filling multiple positions. Which is what most of us do. Not only are we owners, presidents, etc., we might be the designer and estimator or manager, secretary, etc. I really don't want to get into exact numbers, but a company in the upper $000,000's to $1M range is in the $xxx,xxx for salary. I doubt your going to get anything specific on the website.
