  • go to a similar business, and see if the owner is willing to talk to you about it. when we opened our business we were very fortunate to have known several people that had recently done the same thing, and they were very honest about mistakes that they had made.

  • In my family we had a neighborhood grocery store. I think the most cost effective solution is to have your business and home in the same building or on the same property.

  • One of my customers owns five small cafes. Feel free to ask me questions.

    I strongly recommend that you spend a year working in a business similar to the type you wish to start.
