Getting more sales and improving your handmade business is a big topic. Saying it can be done easily seems like a fantasy.

19-military-lessons-that-will-improve-your-handmade-businessThe road to wealth and improved business is not paved with infomercials. Unfortunately, the only thing you’re likely to get from watching those infomercials is dark circles under your eyes from lack of sleep. If you actually go to the seminar or buy the tapes, you’ll probably just have more debt.

However, I believe that hard work will take you places.

Today, I found this video by Valuetainment and I think it has some great advice that you can apply to your routine to improve your handmade business.

The first few minutes are about his experience in the military, and if you’re in a hurry, you can start on the 5th minute.

Here are 19 military lessons that will improve your handmade business.
