I want to start a small business...
So for the first time the other day I wanted to start a small business and I've been running with the idea ever since. It's going to be a membership-based. I won't go into too much detail here, but let's say it is a niche that isn't really filled.
The start up costs are minimal; I only need a decent sized space (~1500 sq ft) and some other things that I am capable of building. I will have no stock since I'm not trying to be a retail establishment. The service I will be providing is more of a space thing. Think of it as a gym for geeks.
I don't want to have to take out any loans because I don't want to have to owe anyone. I have no business experience and I've never taken any classes. What I have is an idea and the drive to make it work.
What advice do you have for a first-timer in this sort of thing? I am all about learning from the experiences of others.
