TOTAL @ 60% capacity $45,000

If she works @100% capacity then $75,000 Make a cut of 3% for her expenses, involving setting up a small

office space for calling, she can earn $72,750 (assumption) We have not included additional income of $3000 by selling security software on grounds of her moral and ethical standards.

But achieving 4X sales with just the efforts of Melita is highly

unlikely in a short span So, taking $60000 as an optimistic figure and making a cut of 12% for expenses, involving travelling etc., she can earn $56,400 (assumption)
