Running a business can be a very stress full and time consuming job that could result in you not having time for anything else however, with the right work ethic, good time management and skilled staff it is possible to run more than one businesses.
Not being able to stop with just one
We are only given one life to live and in this life you may want to put your efforts into more than one task. Do not let people convince you that you have to choose as it does not always have to be either one or the other. For example if you already have a successful business running a professional flower shop but you want to branch out into other areas such as opening up your own your own clothing store this can be achieved. You first need to educate yourself on the fashion industry and find a factory that will manufacture your clothes. Next start small, you do not immediately have to jump into opening an outlet.
Starting off with small steps would eventually help you make it to the top but you have to be patient along the way. Once you have your pieces ready you need to find models who can wear your clothes so people have an idea of what the clothes look like on a human being than opposed to just seeing images of it. Before you do anything else you need to come up with a name for your store so that people know who you are. This should be followed by designing a unique logo. Make sure it is not a replica of an already existing logo; you should try and make it as authentic as you possibly can.
Once you have your name and your logo prepared you could start my selling your clothes online or through word of mouth. Creating a website to see your products would be a very good idea as it will give customers a chance to browse through your website which would help them get an understanding into the kind of designer you are. It would be very beneficial to you if you have a comments section on your website where your customers could give you their feedback of what they think about your collection. This would aid in giving you an understanding into what your customers like and don’t like.
Entering competitions would be a great way for you to showcase your clothes on a large scale as it would allow people to know that you are an up and coming designer. Competitions are also a great way to meet other people in the industry.
