When it is making a profit to a degree that you're happy with and it is meeting its purpose in your head. Success is a state of mind and not necessarily a case of comparing to others or what others think.

With that said it is almost a never ending journey, so its not a point you reach and you're done.

Great answer Steven. James, you must always measure success on your terms. What do you feel are indicators of success for your business? Making any profit? Hitting a specific revenue number? How many people you've been able to hire? The responses you get from clients? Make your success personal, otherwise you'll constantly be chasing what other people tell you is successful.
