Starting a vintage clothing business is one of those long-held goals of mine that I didn’t dare speak into existence for fear of failure. My mom owned a clothing store for much of my childhood and I spent many afternoons there. When her store closed its doors, I worked in her close friend’s store, so in a way the entrepreneurial spirit is inbreed.
I’ve seen many of my fellow bloggers launch businesses through blogging and felt a bit discouraged with the competition and saturated market. But pish posh, just like every blogger has a unique voice, so does every business and I’ve decided to quelch the doubts and begin my journey into entrepreneurship. And when a massive lot of vintage clothes (thanks to the boy’s mother) fell into my lap, I figured it was time to put up and shut up!
Sharing will not only help me but help readers looking to start businesses of their own. The information out there on starting an online business is so vast and confusing, a condensed birds’ eye view of how to get started will be beneficial to everyone. It will be hard work, but the idea of getting the wheels rolling is overcoming the fear of starting a business.
How to Be A Boss Lady will be a continuing series with installments on writing a business plan, web design, photoshoots and the like, all from my view as I embark on starting a business. I hope you can come along for the wild ride as I begin my business and maybe get inspired to start one right along with me.
