The more you sell the more discouraged you are because of constantly capital spare on loss and insult to injury by surrounding people. If those 2 points are the cause, consciously look what we have missed.

Certain point that we must know is breakeven point especially in the matter of restaurant capital structure. As it is considered to be necessary acknowledgement of entrepreneur, when we know the breakeven point, we will know the primary condition of business which way we should do for sales resolution.  Without this acknowledgement makes the difficulty to continue the business. Many entrepreneurs missed this necessary point which later caused a lot of problems to slow business and discouraged them to stop.
