--Whats the most amount of money you made in sales, in 1 day?
- What industry are you in?


$4k ($4,014.86) to be exact
Dietary supplement industry

This was back in May. A popular podcast ran an advertisement for my product. I recouped my investment ($2k) in less than 24 hrs.

38k sales commission. Took me one year of follow up.

Signing of documents and collecting cheque payment took 30 minutes.

I am in financial sales.

There are certain industries that will inflate this number. As an example, large construction equipment sales. You might only sell a few a year, but they can bring $50k+. Another might be jet plane sales. A single sale could yield an even higher number, easily.

My personal best is about $67k.

I like making $2k/day better than $67k here and there, though. Stability, man.

Senior Managing director in MNC in their 50s who make 300k a year would be one step closer to what you call “2k a year”. But eventually one has to look in slow lane for stability.

I am afraid business by nature is highly unstable. You can have multiple streams of income to stabilize it to a certain extent only.

If you can improve from hitting the big case every six month to every three month, and eventually to once every month, its a form of improvement that is very powerful.

Selling big ticket items eventually will be more worth the money on the effort if you can stomach the adjustment phase where it seems to take forever to get that deal.

Mine was around $27k. Ran a buy one get one free sale.
Assuming this was on Amazon? Would you say it was worth it, and would you do it again? That's one promo I haven't experimented with yet.

Also, mine was a little under $6k less than a week ago. Obviously looking to top this several times in the next month, as I'm sure all of us will be hitting new all-time highs soon too.

“2k a year”
I said $2k/day. As in, per diem.​

When I first hit $500/day, it was actually pretty life changing paying off debts in a matter of months. I continued to live a very lowly lifestyle for as long as possible and just put everything towards debts. Paying the last loan off was... kind of surreal, honestly.

When I hit $1k/day, it was a complete shift in mindset where money became a tool. I went from thinking about scarcity and just "hanging on" to "how do I turn this into another $1k/day as fast as possible" mentality.

When I hit $2k/day, I actually started stressing about taxes quite a bit more, but money was, overall, kind of numbing day-to-day. It felt almost obsolete, and the daily goal meant little compared to the "big win" to become secure for a lifetime.

On some days, I've surpassed $3k/day and it feels just like $2k/day but bigger.

But here's the interesting thing...
Back when I had the one big paycheck of $67k in a month, it felt semi-useless. This is for three reasons, that I can think of:
  1. I had no idea when the next one was coming​
  2. I had every dollar ear marked towards bills, debts, and "winter months"​
  3. The security it granted really was false and evaporated in about two weeks​

Is $2/3k a day from a job or your own business.

I'd agree with you that $500 per day would be the tipping point for me.

Congratulations by the way.

It was $20k on my website and $7k on amazon. the promo was from my website only.

I presold it with an email to my list 2 days before and also a bunch of Facebook posts.

I did it a second time 6 months later and did only around $19k.

Now customers are expecting it and waiting for it. So I’m not sure it’s a good thing.

I will be doing it again on Black Friday.

My own business: around 7k.

For an employer, we ran a BOGO on gift cards on Black Friday and generated about $95k. It was fun, because normally December was their slowest month because of industry seasonality.

EDIT: Oops, just checked the reports and I originally said 450k but it was 95k LOL...big difference

Wah? That slowlane stability is provided by a company. Own it or work for it, that company has to be stable for a stable wage.

What business do you own that gives more or less consistent flow of 2k a day?

Usually the variance of a highly profitable company can be quite big. For example a construction/engineering company could be 4-15 million a year, because there is uncertainty on whether they can get the big projects they are bidding for and whether the Actual cost of the project is close to their projection.

There is a big difference between what you "make" and what you "sell".

But yes, the goal of all this is upward trajectory on both of those numbers

And you get a job working for what?...

A business.

If business is inherently unstable then so is a job.

Businesses or industries can be unstable, but not “business” as a whole.

You know what is stable? Owning your own means of production, whatever that is.

My largest invoice was for over 400k! Obviously we didn't net that but it was still a great deal for our company... hopefully another similar large deal will come again soon...

Nice numbers now and than.
In my job, I m happy to have days of 1000€ a day,

but working some months to get 50000 for it on a day doesn t mean you made 50 k in one day, it only means, you have one bill with one date in one day.

my best day in a business was about 1200 euros selling sausages on my own flea market Plus this flea market

Maybe I'll wait until the end of tax season this year and send out all my invoices on the same day...

I've sold a few houses. Do those count as a single day though? If so, $47,000.

I got a $7,500 commission check once for finding an environmental systems engineer for the Spaceship Co, but that was as an employee.

For an actual repeatable process, that was 100% my own, my best day was $2,260. I'm most proud of this one. :)
