I love this worksheet, because you can use it to forecast your breakeven point for a specific expenditure, for a month, or for a year. For example, if you know that a marketing project will cost you $600, and your gross profit per item is $25, you will need to sell 24 items to breakeven. If you know that your monthly expenses are $4,000 per month, and you make $25 gross profit per item, you’ll need to sell 160 items to breakeven. Etc, etc, etc. No more guessing whether you will make enough money to pay for something or to give yourself the paycheck you need – this worksheet clearly spells it out.
