  • Scared new girl

    Hey everyone.. Im Sue, 28 years old. Recently moved out of NJ to TN and am hoping to open my own grooming business. But I am scared it might not work out. So I joined this forum in hopes of getting more information on everything possible!

      First thing that you can do at home is read Madson's Problem's to Profits. Next Small Business for Dummies. P to P is zeroed in on grooming. For some reason SB for Dummies helped me pull it all together for my business plan.
      If you can go to the NDGAA Conference in Charlotte it will be a real upper for you to get down to the nitty gritty.
      The two books I suggested...read with highlighter in hand. If you go to a Conference...bring clipboard and lots of paper.

        Thanks so much. I have went thru some of the topics on here and I saw that Problems to Profits is a book that helps many people. I'm going to see if I can get it today at a book store. If not, then I am going to order it. I cant sleep or anything anymore worrying about if this is the way to go. Im wondering if $1,000 a month for a lease...will I even be able to make profit. This is what I have been researching lately. If I get a shop on a busy highway it is more money of course and further to drive from my house. If I get a shop on a side road that is for SALE it will be mine and if it doesnt work out I can sell it later. But the high traffic wont be there to see the business. Any ideas on this? Is it really neccessarry to have a shop on a major highway where there is always traffic coming thru. Also, another thing I have been thinking about is...how will I go about getting a mortgage since I dont have a job now. Maybe it will be better to stick with renting or leasing. Hmmm...

          I have researched this idea about leasing rather than buying or vice-a-versa.
          I came to the conclusion that if you lease the property for say 2 years. 3 years atleast to come out of the red, on average. If you see that this isn't going to work there then your not out anything but time, effort and equipment. You won't have "mortgage payment" to make on a building that may or may not sell next month. Before you buy a peice of commercial property you definately need to see how long it's been on the market, because if it doesn't work then you can see how long it's taken to get that peice sold.

          Everyone is going to have that "what if this doesn't work" in the back of their mind. But, you will never really know if you don't take that leap and do what you love!

          Good luck with whatever you do.
