Why aren't you making a million dollars with your hot dog cart? Are you allergic to money or something? Recently I sent out an email to vendors in the group. Apologizing.
[DON'T RUN OFF BEFORE YOU READ WHAT DUGGS DOGGS HAS TO SAY]
Yup, I was apologizing for spending too much time writing and talking about the vendors making a killing, those having huge days, those making well over $100,000 a year and those who keep expanding.
There is nothing wrong with making a million dollars with your hot dog cart!
I'm not saying there is something wrong with making a ton of money. I'm not saying there is something wrong with sharing those stories with you. What I am saying. Is that many vendors choose to stay small and that I wasn't given enough credit nor attention to these very happy and very successful vendors.
By only sharing the big wow moments and the struggling vendor stories, I was unintentionally making some vendors feel inadequate or as if they weren't living up to their potential.
THAT CERTAINLY WASN'T MY INTENTION!
SUCCESS IS IN THE EYE (WALLET) OF THE BEHOLDER
Not everyone has the desire for $127,000 a year. Nor $252,000 a year. Not even $61,000 a year. Success for many is having a reliable income from doing.
- SOMETHING THEY LOVE
- NOT WEARING THEMSELVES OUT
- ADDING A MONTHLY INCOME THAT ALLOWS MORE FREEDOM
- HAVING FUN WHILE MAKING MONEY
- HAVING EXTRA CASH
- NOT RUNNING OUT OF MONTH BEFORE MONEY
- NEVER HAVING TO WORK OVERTIME
There are hundreds and hundreds of happy, successful vendors who aren't making a million dollars with a hot dog cart. Below is word for word the email I received from a great friend and a successful, happy vendor who works part time and has for 8 years now.
Staying part time and small is not a bad thing.

You get it all. Was $197 – RIGHT NOW JUST $10 – WATCH A DAY IN THE LIFE WITH MICHAEL WOOD
From 22 Carts To 3
My first year I reinvested every dime I could and kept expanding. Pretty soon I had a large fleet of headaches and pockets full of money AND NO TIME TO SPEND IT.
I went back down to 6 carts and was making about the same money (I teach how to expand correctly here) and then to three. By the end of my 2nd year, I was a 3 cart operation.
I was happier, had plenty of cash and could go fishing anytime I wanted.
Yesterday I was on the phone with a vendor. He has expanded, like others and now has carts, a trailer or two and a restaurant. His words: “I WANT TO GO BACK TO JUST CARTS”.
Why? Because he was happier, less headaches and more FREEDOM!
I want to thank Michael for sharing his thoughts and for allowing me to share it with you. If you would like to learn exactly how Michael Wood operates, how he preps, sets up and serves, you can see it all here.
