Revising History

The last two days of fiscal April were almost strong enough to turn the month black. Being anal about numbers, and having nothing else to post today, I therefore offer this revision to last week's numbers. 


Total income: -2.4%
Total COGS: +3.6%
Payroll: +32.8%
Marketing: -11.5%
Net Income (Profit): -72.7% (-$276)

Year to Date: 

Total income: -16.9%
Total COGS: -24.1%
Payroll: -15%
Marketing: -26.9%
Net Income (Profit): +25.9% (+$529)

The expected May bloodbath is underway, though. May 2012 was my strongest non-Christmas month ever, whereas the first week of this May is on track to be the worst of the year. That’s been the pattern all year – one average-to-good week alternates with one poor week, keeping all of my paychecks anemic.
