I live in an OK sized town (approx. 30K people) and there is, and I'm not exaggerating here, no maternity stores available here. The closest place would be oooh, roughtly 77 miles away. So, I've been thinking about opening a maternity consignment shop. I've not taken any business classes, which depending on really how serious I am (and it's pretty up there), I am thinking of getting my bachelors in business. I don't know where to start or who to talk to about this, to see what type of financing it would take. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks in advance!Answer Question

You should also take at least a few workshops or at the very least join www.shrm.org if you plan on hiring even at least 1 employee to be sure you understand employment law and employment taxes. Relying on an accountant alone can get you in big trouble! We live near 2 major casinos in CT and there are constantly articles in the paper and stories on the local news of bookkeepers and accountants "cooking the books" and embezzling crazy amounts of money from small business owners because of their gambling addictions or other personal financial problems. There are financial problems everywhere and even if you don't live near a physical casino.. there are tons of online gambling sites!
Be careful and Good Luck!!!
