7.3 Projected Profit and Loss

The profit and loss projections in the chart and table below present the key increase in sales, profits, and gross margin.

The company estimates it will not achieve profitability in the first year, especially since we project the need to hire two additional full-time employees late in the year to assist with marketing and administrative responsibilities. Their goals will be to increase overall traffic to the site, increase the percentage of customers who fill out gig requests and increase the percentage of gig requests that result in bookings.
