You know income and revenue are completely different things right?? Income = profits. Revenue = total sales. You should edit out the income part, because the values you show are revenue.

Take a basic biz class before you write a business blog.

greg, thanks for the comment. I stand corrected. You have a point.

But income and revenue could also mean the same thing in some cases.

Revenue could be also be referred as gross income according to John W. Schoen, a professional business writer and senior producer of msnbc.com. (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7477449/ns/business-answer_desk/t/whats-difference-between-revenue-income/)

And also Wikipedia defines revenue as, "...income that a company receives from its normal business activities, usually from the sale of goods and services to customers."

You mention about income. Maybe you mean it as "net income" and not income per se.

To be exact, you should mention net income = profits.

But I should thank you for your suggestion. Actually I have not studied business course in college. But I know simple and basic business.
