Default Business Time

well guys i have recently lost my job (4 weeks ago) and have been lookin really hard since and no one wants to employ me so i jus recieved my last wages from my last job,

and i have decided to take a bald move and try my hand at my own business,

it will be selling greetings cards, arts materials, pencil cases etc, (arts and crafts)

but i have just bought 10,000 greetings cards for 150, i worked out even if i sold them for 0.10 each id make 1,000 (850 profit) i play on selling them (depending on diff sizes) for 0.40 each so basicly im kinda happy at mo,

to start with im going to car boot sales every sunday, im currently speaking with a friend who has a stall at our local market and he says there is many slots availbale, im also currently building a website that will also feature custom cards, as my mum makes personalised cards. basicly i have expansions planned.

im doing this is all with my mum, dont laugh lol.

any advice on running a successful business, or any general advice.

well done, that is a bold move, and i hope for the best.

my advice, try to advertise, anywhere and everywere u can. dosent matter if its madison square garden, or your local halfway house, get ur name out there.

another, i would have to say, watch ur money. dont spend too much on uneccsory items.


hope this helps

i completely agree, a business is nothing without customers, advertising = customers, for now until i have my website up, a week or so from now, as i said im jus going up boot sale for now so until i make my next move the advertising wont happen.
