which one is correct 'we became successful in a very small time.'
or 'we became successful in a very short time.'
what should be used?? short time or small time??
'We soon became successful.'
And you might want to expand on this to make it more concrete (what does 'soon'/'in a very short time' mean, after all?), eg:
'We soon became successful and by the end of 2009 we were posting profits of over US$100,000.'

Phew! That was a close shave! I just managed to insert the 's' to fix the 'successful' typo - twice! What does that tell you? - in time before I was exposed (which would have been all the more humiliating because I'm a proofreader).
Personally, I'd write:
We achieved success in a short amount of time.
We were quick to attain success.
