You are Allowed to Make a Profit as you're Learning
When you're fresh out of school, and starting a job. Did anyone tell you, "you're not allowed to make money!" I mean, I HIGHLY doubt it. Most of us can't live our lives that way.
So, why shouldn't you make a profit in your business? Why shouldn't you make a healthy profit in your business?
You are continually learning through training, watching others, practicing and/or PAYING thousands of dollars for your education and expertise! I mean - DUH! You have to make a profit to stay in business, but your take home paycheck needs to prove that you're profiting too!
If you were an employee at a job you would reasonably expect: a monthly salary, insurance and health benefits, retirement vesting, bonuses, paid education, conferences, training..... and the list goes on. As a business OWNER, shouldn't you get those same privileges and more?!?
So yes, you are allowed and need to make a profit. A good profit. Even as you're learning. End of story.
