Thank You

Words can't describe how much I appreciate Seattle weather today. I love the rain. Rainy days make me feel good. But fog...wow, fog makes everything feel magical. And I needed that happy, magical feeling today. How grateful I am to live in Seattle where it can be cool and foggy in the middle of the Summer.

What does this actaully cost

Today as I handed over my quarterly receipts to my bookkeeper, I asked her to do a cost analysis of what it actaully costs to run this business. If I had to guess based on all the checks I write, I would say I need to make between $3,000 and $6,000 per month just to break even. That means pay all the rents and bills and employees, etc. But I so do not understand finances that I have no idea if that amount even includes my paycheck or not. Maybe that's before I pay myself. Maybe it includes my own paycheck. Heck, I don't know. The bills are always paid, so I haven't had to figure this out before.

She thinks she'll have time to look into it in August. I'm on the edge of my seat now. What does it actually cost me every month to run this business???
