I have no idea where to even start lol (asking for advice I mean!)
Jobseekers have a scheme for setting up your own business. I'm considering it - but I have a) terrified and b) have no idea what I'm doing and c) don't have a lot of time to apply for it.
I have two ideas - one is an online craft business selling my handmade leather journals.
The other is more scary - opening up a bookstore. Kind of a dream job but something I am possibly too young and inexperienced for? Ive never even had work experience in a book store, i just frequent them a lot and review books online.
If a bookstore was successful (big if)I would obviously be tied down to wherever I opened...
Dad reckons I should combine the two.
But for either idea I have no idea if there is really a need for them. Both are things I am passionate about but also seem almost like common 'dreams' if you know what I mean. I'm sure many people have wanted to own a bookstore, or sell sketchbooks...
