HOW TO HIT THE MILLION DOLLAR MARK

Your RS Action Plan Will Help Get Your Store There!

If you’re like most of our Members, one of your many goals is hitting the “Million Dollar Store” mark. That is a high goal to aspire to, but is reachable if you have an action plan and execute that plan. Unfortunately for many stores, that “action plan” has been missing.
