JRB Posted August 4, 2004 Report Share Posted August 4, 2004 So, this new venture begins with Mom being let go from a job of 13 years and potentialy a 28 year career if I jump into this with both feet. My boss sold his practice and I was replaced by another (younger) hygienist. I won't go into the nasty details of it but lets say for now it was a shock. My DD was at her SI when my elderly Father slipped and told her over the phone what happened. Once she was reasured that I was ok and we would all be ok, we began to look at this as a new beginning. You can tell me I'm crazy (and a friend did) but I am going to try my hand at opening a dance store. My Husband feels we can do this and has been researching small businesses for the past 5 years and we have a meeting with the SBA to work out the business plan. My location is set, I have to figure out the financial end of things and then get merchandise inplace to open asap. What I am asking for now is help with a name for the store and to ask if any of you have done the same thing and opened a store. Am I crazy? I have already gone through the panic of losing my income and now going more into debt than ever but, someone please give me some encouragement!!! I will at sometime need to hear the horror stories but could you hold off on them for just a little while? Thanks ps I am even a little nervous posting this but everyone is so supportive that I thought I'd jump in. Quote Link to comment
