I’ll be the first to admit that it’s hard to think through the tough questions. Most of us would rather get started designing our awesome product than think through the details of what it means to own a business.
On this episode of the Fashion Brain podcast, we talk about what questions you need to ask yourself before you launch a fashion line (or any business, for that matter). It’s a step many of us want to skip. But I warn you… If you launch a fashion biz (and start spending money) without addressing these issues first, you’ll be sorry.
In this episode, we’ll cover:
- What to think about before you start spending money
- Typical fashion startup mistakes
- Why you have to make time for your business and learn to say no
- Why worrying about “being nice” can be bad for business
- The highs and lows of being an entrepreneur
- Grit and how to know if you have it
- The huge difference between having a great idea and implementing it
“Come up with original, clever ideas and make sure you’re doing at least 12 things different from anyone else in your business category. If you don’t give people something to talk about, then nobody is going to talk about you.” – Johnny Cupcakes
An overview of the questions:
- Do I have a compelling concept?
- Do I have the GRIT to get through the lean years
- Am I going in with a clear idea of what I want and what for my life and mu business?
- Do I have the knowledge and education I need to execute my vision or am I willing to get it?
- Am I good and saying NO?
