I hit 20,000 record profit since I started. This year for my 4th summer (not year) in business. I've been only working during the summer time not bad for a solo operation !

Year is still ongoing for us.

My question is, what does this tell us about our chosen profession?

Well, the thing is, it may not say as much about the chosen profession as it does the sampling group that answers.

We are more likely to have younger startup businesses answer the post as those are the ones that would tend to be reading the forum to learn how to grow.

Once you get larger and feel you know all you need to know, you may not feel the need for forums then and wouldn't be on here to answer such polls. At least that is a theory.

I think it would be beneficial to define net income and explain individuals current business structure, a solo sole prop will have higher "net" percentage because they most likely figure their wage as that net dividend. Whereas an Inc will have all applicable expenditures accounted for. So the results will never be an apples to apples comparison IMHO.
