third year 30k

And so on.

Those first three years I had a part-time job also. I just let the biz slowly grow into itself.

I don't want to talk numbers for this year, but I'm still showing growth in the 7th year and it looks great.

As we start to max out for the size of the business in terms of being me and mostly one part-time employee, we are still showing 10% growth or better this year over last.

As a solo, those first 3 years sales figures are really right on with what I did too. Get the business, grow, add an employee, then you can really watch things take off.
