The Myth Of Overnight Success

Success does not usually happen overnight. In fact, it can often times take years to reach. The hardest part about success is measuring what you think is successful. For some it is one sale a week and for others it is multiple sales per day. What is it for you?

For me, a sale a day is my daily goal. It does not happen every day, but it does often times average out to a sale a day when looked at over a month or two. There are days that I do not make a sale and there are days when I make multiple sales.

You have to look at the big picture. Where do you want to be in six months, a year, five years, etc. Then you need to come up with a road map to each of your goals. If your goal is to double your shop inventory in six months and you have 100 items in your shop, it is unlikely that you will meet that goal overnight. You'll probably want to set goals of adding 10 to 20 items a month for the next six months.

The harder you work, the luckier you'll get! Do you have a success story that you'd like to share? Leave a comment or send me an email to
