: 1) Could you give me any advice that would help me be sucessful?
Being Famous Helps.
But if you're not here's some advice.
If you dont got something, somebody wants, GET IT.
And make good on your promises.
Otherwise they'll order it online and tell you to go screw yourself.
A friend of mine owns a much smaller shop, and was afraid of being put out of business by this oversize Giant store that was opening up two blocks away. In an unstable market this seemed like certain death.
So he started working seven days a week. and did everything I mentioned above. The wankers from next door didnt stand a chance with their high and mighty, "I dunno nothing about comics I just work here" attitude.
He stole all of their business and NOW the superstore is barely making ends meet on EBAY.
Oh and don't tell people you used to work at the Disney Store.
That is so gay.
