It all started a few weeks ago when I had a little money in my bank account. Birthday money. I ordered a handmade stamp on Etsy, figured out a name, and haven’t looked back since. I’m working on recipes and packaging ideas and figuring out how to get capital to start my small farmers’ market stand by the summer. But the one thing I really need help on, is business planning.
I don’t do well learning things on my own. I never have. I could have got my pharmacy technician’s certification on my own, but I know how lazy I can be if I don’t have a motivating push. It’s odd, because I do consider myself a bit of a loner, but when it comes to learning, I have to see and hear it from somebody else. It’s not the same with group study– I’m terrible in those situations.
Anyways, I don’t know where to begin on the whole business plan thing. I’ve got most of the information on what I need to open up a stand at the farmers market, but I need an actual plan. I don’t know I’m lost.
Can anyone give me some guidance on what to do or who to go to about starting a small business?
