Tracking your success (and misses) on the road is vital, and to do that, you need a profit and loss statement. Generated monthly, this scorecard measures your financial progress by employing a basic formula of revenue minus expenses equals profit. It details the types of revenue you’re making, breaks out individual expenses, tells you how much money you’re making and what expenses you need to trim.
