PROFIT: meaning and examples

Good morning everyone. Today's word is: profit (noun) or to make a profit (verb). It means: the money you make by selling something or the money that a company has after it has paid its business costs. Example 1: The profits from the sale are going towards (se destinan a) helping the victims of the recent tsunami disaster. Example 2: We're never going to make a profit if we don't raise prices or cut costs. REMEMBER: The translation of profit is beneficio, so don't confuse the words profit and benefit in English. (See yesterday's Daily Vitamin). If you have any questions about this word, please don't hesitate to contact me. Have a great day!
