I am coming up on my one year anniversary in business (yeah me!)

I'm just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on when I'm no longer "new". Is there a certain time frame, or just when the next cake shop opens up after me?

When there isn't a person alive that hasn't had one of my pastries. That's how I view it. Every day is a chance to get a person enlightened. Never ever established.

I feel when you are known in your community and have consistent business. Some people it takes months, some people take years. I know you all ready there. Congratulations on your one year anniversary! party.gif

Congrats on your first year anniversary! thumbs_up.gif

If I remember (it seems so long ago now!), I was into my second year before I felt like my business was getting established in my community....or maybe that I finally figured out where my 'niche' was! icon_lol.gif

My idea of "established" is when I my biz is self-sufficient, and I can live comfortably off my biz income without any outside help.
