An expensive month…

So, June was very profitable, but also very costly. Just part of doing business, I guess. Let’s break it down:

* new Canon 5D mkII with some misc accessories: $3,000
* repair my original Canon 5D: $400
* repair my BeachTek audio device for my video camera: $150
* replace some old rechargeable batteries for my flash: $85
* buy a newer Powermac for the office: $1,100
* buy new CF cards: $150
Maybe not a lot of money to some people, but I’d rather not spend so much if I can help it. Hopefully, this gives you an idea of all the things you need to consider when running your own business. If something breaks, you can’t just send it off to the IT department or have the company buy you a new one. You need to factor in all these upgrades and repairs when you are bidding on jobs. You have to pay for it somehow…
