We've only been setting salon revenue goals for about the past 5 months. Getting everyone engaged in the business and working toward the goals is a difficult process that takes time. As I looked at the final numbers for October tonight, I found myself frustrated that we missed our revenue goal by a pretty significant amount (8%).
But then I brought up a spreadsheet I keep that shows key data from 2004 forward. As I looked over the historical information I was reminded how far we've come. And I was reminded that we don't have to do it all in 6 months. This is a marathon, not a sprint; a crock pot, not a microwave. I need to keep it all in perspective and keep heading the right direction.
