Dear Maggie W.
Congratulations on finishing school early.
And I love the passion to be a business woman.
Dreams are good, they fuel the passion to succeed
and doing what you love, gets out of bed every morning to make it happen.
Uniqueness always stands out and gets attention.
What is the most challenging part of opening your own business. MONEY.
Unless you, or some that loves you and trusts you dearly, has at least $150 thousand dollars
to open up the business, you will find yourself raising capital for the venture.
You must have a business plan that shows how you will operate and what is unique about the business
How you will find customers and make sure they know you are there to come through the doors by the throngs to buy coffee at your place.
You will have to have a deep knowledge about coffee,
and also about the competition who is offering coffee (called generic product)
that you see unique, but others may not yet know about.
You will also need to hire people to do some of the work and supervise them.
Also make sure you make enough revenue to pay them all.
This can be sometimes a challenge, because it is a new coffee shop.
Choose a location that is super busy and in a place where people wake up early.
Offer many varieties and at a reasonable price.
I myself love coffee, and drink it every morning,
but I like to make and drink coffee at home. But that's just me.
There is a wonderful world waiting for you. Go out and offer your best.
Let me know if this helps OK, and if you have any other questions,
we / I shall be always here for you.
