I’ll stop here. I hope this statistics are insightful and reader will find a way to learn one or two things from this data.

To some, my journey might be a failure (considering they have had far more success within the same period of 21 months since they started), to others this is a huge success, but to me, this is everything.

I’m forever grateful to Allah for this achievement.

More sales to us all. I wish us a better second quarter of 2021!

Take Care!
