Where does all the money go? Why is there never anything left at the end of the week, month, year?

How is it possible that sales keep growing, but I STILL can't afford to pay myself a livable wage??? You are not alone. In business it seems like profit is this mythical thing that only the most successful, big businesses ever achieve. Your accountant tells you things look great, but it feels horrible. You stress every month about whether you will be able to pay your bills, even though your product is selling really well. You're beginning to hate the business that started as your dream. We're here to tell you: it doesn't have to be this way. The Local Maker Business Academy® is here to help you fill in the knowledge gaps so you can get your business back on track.
