Question Webmaster: What is your pre-tax net profit for calendar year 2002?

Special thanks to Senior Memeber "Just some Webjunky" for the suggestion. Iím hoping this Poll can lead to some quality discussions. Your ďvoteĒ is 100% anonymous. I am reluctant to mention this but please be honest when you select your answer and only vote once.

Who should vote:

Only those self employed Webmasters who recieve income from their sites. Those of you who are salaried employees and not owners and those who run networks should not vote. Natch, you can post all you want. If your income is a combination of Webmaster + Netowrk and or salaried, please only vote for your Webmaster/site income. This procedure should narrow the focus of the Poll and produce more relavent results.

Our First Poll on this issue may be found at: http://www.geekvillage.com/forums/sh...threadid=13132


2 digits: $10.00
3 digits: $100.00
4 digits: $1000.00
5 digits: $10000.00
6 digits: $100000.00


"What is your pre-tax net profit for calendar year 2002?"

1) Calendar year 2002 begins on 1/1/02 and runs through 12/31/02. It's not the last 365 days or the last year.

2) "pre-tax net profit" for the purposes of this poll and a ballpark definition for self employed folks is :

I cashed checks for $12,000.00 for CPA, CPM, and CPC campaigns for period 1/1/02 through 12/31/02. Thats your gross and NOT your net. It's never your NET as all business have exspenses.

3) I spent a total of $7,000.00 for the period 1/1/02 through 12/31/02 for EXSPENSES like hosting, advertising, custom coding work, rent, graphic artists fees.

4) My "...pre-tax net profit for calendar year 2002" is NOT $12,000.00. My pre-tax net is:

12k minus 7k = 5K

5) Comments often heard: "Dude! I'm making 3k per month.

Dude2: Are you positive of this? Is that number gross or net? Is that number after you pay your taxes? Is that number your pre tax net?

Dude1: <gulp>

Please post in this thread if anything in the Poll is not clear or you donít understand it. Good luck
