Friday Fashion Business Tip: Know the Definition of Profit

Definition of Profit

Profit it the difference between revenue and expense. Always remember the definition of profit. As a business you have to bring in more money than you spend if you want to remain a business.  This may sound obvious but it’s easy to see revenue coming into your business and then consider your business profitable.

At its core, having a successful business is not about the money you are able to make, it’s about the money you are able to keep.

Keep records, spreadsheets, and budgets in place for your business so that you can clearly see what you’re making, what you’re spending, and what you’re keeping.
