trying to make a business plan for a "tobacco shop" its a bitch
    #4448521 - 07/24/05 11:16 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

yeah so i want to open up a head shop, but i need a loan from a bank to get the capital, so i have to whip up a 20 some page business plan, with profit estimates, supply lines, legal documents, coporate filing, floor layout, partners, product descriptions...

these things are a bitch to do, and i just got started, god willing if i actually am able to focus on this it might be done in a week, then i get to go to banks and beg for venture capital....

OI- i ust had to share my frustreation

and in the end ill probably just get raided..

I wish you luck in your endeavors.

And if it is any comfort, I would travel any distance to visit your shop, have a talk, and buy one of your pieces.  You do amazing work.  Keep it up.

Good luck.  :heart: :thumbup:

Good luck, man. Starting a business is a tough thing to do. I have respect for venture capitalists like yourself. I doubt I'd have what it takes.

well that was just a guess, those long ass plans turn potential investors away though.
im just trying to figure out my supply source for glass, and shop location, insurance, and all that jazz.

Just remember that 7 out of 10 businesses fail. Not saying that yours will, but I hope you're prepared to take that risk.
