ok i think i'll be the one to break etiquette. as a martial arts instructor, or a school owner rather, say the school is doing reasonably well, where should the cuttoff point be. what number is a good salary for an owner. and further more, what number should the owner be striving for when s/he's building the student base? at what point does it become greed? in my area you NEED to earn 60k a year to live in a two bedroom apartment. thats a nice salary, but if you run a successful school, maybe you wanna get yourself a house, is it greedy to up your salary?
