Profit Matters

A business cannot run unless it makes profit! Below is the definition of profit and the basic profit and loss formula:


The formula above means, if you are selling a product to a customer, you must take the amount of money it costs to create the product and subtract it from the amount that you are charging the customer. Whatever is left is your profit.

For example, if I buy a pen from a stationery shop for 55p and sell it to my friend for £1, I have made a profit of 45p!

Let’s try another quick example, this time let’s try to work out the answer:

Let’s work it out together:

    hello, I;m interested in this for my 13 yr old son, but I feel I would need to see some of the materials first to check if it will be the kind of thing that holds his interest. he is home -educated cos his minds works in its own unique way. its hard to imagine if this will be up his street – tho the timing is just right as he has expressed an interest in making his own business. is there a way to get a sneak peak at the kind of thing it entails? x x

    Hi, I’m interested for my 12 year old.
    Is there a certificate of completion and how many hours does the course take Please?

      Hi Gerry,

      Yes, students will receive a certificate of completion with a motivational note upon completion of the course. The course contains over 15 hours of learning time, but how long spent on each section really depends on each child/young person. This 15 hours does not include tasks that students are assigned to do themselves, such as continued selling practice, business idea presentation/proposal etc.

      Once enrolled, students will have up to 24 weeks to complete the course, so they can do it at their own pace

    Hi, I am a foster carer, would my 12 year old granddaughter be able to do the course along with my FC? My granddaughter would really benefit from this course.
    Many thanks
