Uncle Harry says you can make 2 grand a week, 150K a year if you purchase his program.   Any truth to that?

Math seems funny. $2000.00 for 52 weeks is ......... $104,000 and that could be true.150k? depends on if he means before or after expenses. I can relate to MSNBC story I even saw about 5% per year decrease for the last 10 years. I use to do 10 calls a day and REPAIR the machines and make money. Most parts were interchangeable then now not so much so and ordering more parts than before. About 55% repair and 45% condemn.

The 2 grand a week is that after you pay for licenses, truck, vehicle insurance, liability bond, gas, vehicle maint, advertizing, overhead, and taxes?
