Your First Sale

Entrepreneurship is risky. You don’t know how your business model will do in the marketplace. You use the knowledge, skills and experiences to create the revenue model that you hope will bring revenue to your business. Yet the real test comes when you get out there in the real world.

You never know when your first sale is going to come. It could be a few days, weeks or even months. You’re anxious and optimistic. The wait sometimes is unbearable as your costs are adding up. But you know that you choose this path of entrepreneurship because you believed in yourself, your ideas and your vision.

The day comes. You have delivered on your promise to the customer. In fact, you have gone above and beyond to get this first sale. Congratulations. That sale (no matter how much you got paid) feels like a million bucks (unless you made million bucks which could make you feel like a billion bucks).Wow. You feel like you’re on top of the world. There’s no stopping you.

Embrace that feeling when you made your first sale. That “top of the world” feeling is priceless. Go ahead and be proud that you did it. Now focus on the tomorrow and keep making things happen.
