>> Think you're ready to open up a shop? Read on and find out what really goes on behind the register...
1. Name one thing that completely took you by surprise when you first started the shop - something that neither biz how-to books or any "SCORE" workshop prepared you for.
Sher - all the many decisions that constantly need to be made and you have to make them.
Sam – how you really need to plan in advance, it takes allot of forethought. Holidays are always popping up and you need to be ready weeks before that day which means ordering weeks before that!
2. How long did it take you to set up the shop? Start from the day you said to yourself I'm opening a shop to the day your doors opened.
6 months to the day
