    When I first joined BHW (back in 2008!) I had never made a dollar online. Was still a student with a crappy weekend job making ~$7/hour. Last year I hit $1m in revenue for the first time. This year I'm on track for even more business growth.

    I get lots of questions from people about how to scale up and so many people try to overcomplicate it. I put together a quick post explaining how I approach big goals/targets. Any comments/questions/critique appreciated: http://feinternational.com/blog/the-power-of-continuous-improvement-in-your-business/

    Trying to write on my blog a little more this year so always open to other feedback!

    Nice writeup. I've worked for a few startups and the one where I was there from start to end was a wild ride. I would say that their success was a combination of having 3 really smart guys who complimented each other and some aggressive marketing. Another factor was that they got in on an industry that was just at the start of its day.

    Oddly enough, they sold for $100million and then started an exact same business down the street from me. lol The second one was not as successful, but I saw their commercials every once in a while.

    I am now at 3x last year earnings, and I am so proud.

    I'm killing it with 15 hours of work per day, not stress work, loving work, I love that.

    Also starting my internet journeys blog this year, and I hope I will convince more people to do this, and I will try to help newbies to go from 0 to 10$ with more 0's at the end of this number, I hope so.

    Make your idea real and you made money from this idea in your mind, you will make real money too.

    Having a partner definitely helps starting out and as you grow. It's rare for someone to be good at every aspect of their business so if you can find someone with skills in areas you lack it's very useful!

    Continuous improvement is one of the key of Japanese car manufacturers.
    I work with them and I hear this word EVERYDAY.
    Every little things will add up and if you think carefully this is where you win the competition.

    These are simple but powerful tweaks let's called them. It's nice to see a long term business that made it. Congrats!
