We all make goals for our own improvement, development and enrichment. Be it to run a marathon, to learn French, to play the piano, to learn to sketch, or to write a novel we all have something we would like to do to improve ourselves and enrich our lives. We make these goals with the best of intentions, but everyday somehow they never get accomplished from a goal into a reality. And that isn’t to say that these things are not important to you. They just simply don’t get done. Somewhere between essential activities such as showering in the morning and eating dinner in the evening your goal for self-improvement just isn’t met once again.

To gauge market growth, discover the simple indicators of your market’s overall growth rate and growth potential. Some of these indicators are the trends in number of customers, type and size of their purchases, and the industry wide sales from year to year. You will need to look for a growth opportunity if you find that the market is static or shrinking.
