I think I see your problem, I never sold a damn thing either when the store was closed.<quoted text>all of our buisnesses are incorporated. My wife and I are the owners of the corp. The corporation writes each of us a salary paycheck of $200 each week. much less than the minium wage. Half of what we paid ourselves 4 years ago. Of course the lions share of our profit stays in the corporate account. that money is seed money & the rainy day fund. We have cut back and hunkered down for a long seige so to speak. I turned of the electric at my sales lot & shop to save a $100 per month. If I go there and need electric I crank up a generator. Its apparent the economy is faltering. Very few frieght trucks drive past anymore used to be several dozen per day. I can sell eqiptment two times per year. Once in the spring when the farmers borrow their money to put in the crop and in the fall after they harvest and sell their crop. There just isnt any extra money in the budget for most folks.
You can always fall back on that equipment sales though with all this row crop production in the hills.
That no man has said in the last 80 years.
