Marks take:

I was shown early on that its wise to invest as many extra hours as possible during your first years.  Its not how much better things get if you keep trying its how much worse they get if you don't.  Like video games you must learn to master the level your on in order to advance to the next.  During negotiations remember that even if one line of product is tapped out their may be more opportunities advertising dollars or money off other items in their portfolio.  Viewing your entire store is a tall task instead change up the counter checkout so you can showcase parts of your store slowly showing off your entire life of products.The key is to remember to constantly keep thinking, keep innovating and always learn from those that do things well.
