G'day all Just toying with some ideas with the Mrs and basically we want to do something for ourselves and after some info on how to get going We have talked about having our own business for years but the actual business type has varied as we continually move but also can see a number of potential areas and things we could get into. We have the mindset ready and know that we can do it and will work well together at whatever we do but now it's time to get things in motion! Current example of something we found to have a play with is making earrings. We were in Queensland last year and where we were there were these earrings everywhere, so we found out how to make them and ordered the gear and have sold ($2 to make, sell $12) some to two stores as there is nothing like them over west. We have only come across 1 store with them in Albany charging double what qld was. So we're onto that little project. Looking at setting up a market stall with more stock and a few other items over summer. But as for serious stuff my wife has an idea for a niche market in ladies clothing. A close friend is a national sales manager for high end clothes line and 10yrs experience so has been good for info so far and thinks we're onto something. We arent "settled "so we would be looking at selling to established stores around Perth or at markets, if we get it up and running while we're here. But I see the next 6 months mostly planning, designing and getting stock ordered, then some small sales. Basically a practise run getting things sorted and while we are on the move we can pause as we need. Then if /when we get back to Sydney look at opening a store with our clothing plus other products. Before store stage we'd look at setting things up online if some of the intial sales prove promising. So... Does that make sense?? Basically after any links or pointers you have. My thoughts are Choose some designs and talk with alibaba (or similar??) to get prices and lead times. Basic logo, keep it simple to begin with. Business cards, Facebook Page, email Initial order of perhaps 5 styles x qty?? Footwork to find stores and contacts that would be interested in our product Any info very much appreciated!
