HOME 》 Join classes - Sarees are my passion
How do 99% of people start a new Saree business of their dreams ?
You want to be your own boss without restrictions (unlike a job you work for others), time frame and you want to lead a business being an entrepreneur. So, if you are passionate about starting your own Saree business venture, here are few aspects you may stumble upon.
Triggering point (Staring my own Business):
Over the years I had seen few of my students who come for my classes, who are well educated, and want to start their own business. Some of the reasons might be: relocation, students shifting abroad, not able to find a proper job of their own passion, family restrictions/commitments, kids, and so on. So this could be a trigger for starting their own business.
New idea pop-up:
Each one of us are born with unique talent. For example: some might be passionate about painting, or may be sketching, pastry, cooking, designing, interiors, crafts and so on. A random idea might pop and soon after that you may feel like you need to start something of your own. So that you don't need to depend on anyone for financial freedom.
Once these new random idea pop-up, you may start doing research online and gain some basic knowledge. And you may start without thinking pros and cons in Business. Such as Business plan, strategy, execution, budget, marketing, time management and so on.
Supply Chain (Failure Stage):
You may look for Wholesalers/Suppliers from various sources. Once you discover such sources, you may immediately tend to bulk order at a cost-effective price so that you can sell at a profit in retail.
I Know Everything (Failure Stage):
This is where approximately 99% of young aspiring entrepreneurs fail and often they make mistakes.
- They may also invest their time and effort picking the products which they are intended to sell but they end up choosing their own personal choice of product (such as art/design/color/etc) and this over confidence or ego or may be lack of professionalism will destroy their business.
- Purchasing from some random stores, wholesalers, suppliers or multiple vendors lacking focus.
- Invested huge capital in business, but afterwards they lack clarity and don't know how to proceed.
- Not getting customers after everything in place (such as infrastructure, stocks, etc)
Expecting returns starting from day one:
After a bulk stock purchase without a proper schedule or a strategy, expecting returns from day one.
