Micah Vinson Mgmt 241 Revenue / Profit Generation The word revenue as defined by Merriam-Webster’s dictionary is the total income produced by a given source. Revenue is the number one thing on the top of every CEO’s list. Without revenue your business is non extent and pointless. While Merriam-Webster defines the word profit as the excess of returns over expenditure in a transaction or series of transactions; especially: the excess of the selling price of goods over their cost. So while revenue and profit both have the similarity of an increase coming in business, profit exemplifies the goal of every business. This goal is to find a product or service and overcharge heavily for a much a higher profit. A perfect example of profit is how Nike is making tennis shoes in countries like Taiwan, Korea, and China for $10 a pair, having them packaged to the United States and sells them for $100 a pair. That would be what is called a 90 percent profit. This kind of profit is what is ideal in American business today, some might see it as greedy, it is the way business.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
