What was it like opening your first business?
What kind of business?
Were you skeptical, worried, pessimistic?
did you see customers quickly? what did you do to get them in?
My mother in-law, sister in-law and I started a handmade jewelry business called HanDun Creations. I was skeptical. My mother in-law and sister in-law were very optimistic. Unfortunately we are still considered a hobby by the IRS because we make less than $400.00 per year. We do not have a physical shop/location; it's more of an online business at this point. We have a Facebook page, an Esty shop, and we’re on Twitter. We’ve mainly relied on word of mouth because we don’t have enough money to pay for advertising. We haven't had any online customers, we have had several friends and family members buy jewelry.
