In starting any business you need to get back to the basics.

Who are you bringing goods for? Very important – Focus is important.
What are the types of products – unique,branded,niche vs mass

These 2 above will already help in defining Business and marketing strategy.

A short Business Plan will define the focus you need. As far as opportunities in importing they are vast.

There are networks set up to either drop ship, import physical goods. From my experience Niche oriented/unique products will give you higher profits than more common products. However they are also harder to promote and make visible so there is a tradeoff.

If you have specific ideas i can send you more in the right direction as it is a big topic.
