I was just wondering the number of accounts you need to make a profit?
Thanks,

This is my first year, but doing the math, I need 55 accounts at an average of $50 per week each for 40 weeks to make $60,000.

This is almost half of what I made before the economic downfall, but I can swing it if I can make the above happen.


Oh, just saw in another thread you are a high school student. LOL, your life will be much easier.

Get 10 or 12 accounts, and you'll have plenty of spending money.

I'd trade you in a heartbeat.

Sean I think a lot of that is based on your monthly expenses. Have you calculated them out yet? Then have you figured how much you make per month per client?

I bet if you played with the figures a bit you could find a break even point.

that question is kind of a loaded question it is all going to depend on the size of the account 1 account could pay 40.00 on the other end 1 account could pay 500.00 so basickly you need to figure your expenses then the profit you wanna make and the go from there
