It has been a great, though slow two years. I am starting to see a teeny pick up in sales, which is good. In terms of future plans, I am looking at it being several more years before I can consider the approach to a brick and mortar storefront again. I am not yet close enough to a consistent profit to present as proof of success to a lender, though I am inching closer. Goal wise, I will need to increase my sales by at least five times what I am selling per month now, consistently.
I will be releasing a new survey soon to see where the community stands in relation to the Bookshop, and where the needs and gaps are, and what is working, and what is not.
I am so grateful for all the support I have received over the past two years, and I look forward to many more years in the community!
