Kwok, that' the best quote of heard since Trev's signature! LOL! That should be every snake breeder's motto! Ha ha!!
I don't know if it should be every snake breeders motto.... but from the title of the thread you want to put everything in a "business" context. So I am telling you to stop tripping.
Now that you have complainted about the cost side of it, why don't you complain a bit about the Revenue side of it.
How much in Cash sales did you do to incur such a huge 750$ expence in the year?
$20 an hour? what else would you have been doing that would better suit your time then drive a box of snakes to the airport?
Not trying to start a fight here, but if you are trying to run a business you will have expenses. And of course big business = big expenses. Whether it's your personal time, opportunity cost of capital, space, future earnings.
Maybe you should sell your collection to me
that will solve your expense problem.
