Hi there,

To help you focus on the essential elements, close your eyes and visualise opening that door on day 1, and then your first customer entering and buying something. What are the things you’d need at a bare mimimum? I use this process to put together a checklist of things to organise/buy with an essentials list and a “nice to have” list, and a “one day” so it doesn’t seem so overwhelming.

-What do you need to open the door? Premises, permits, insurance?
-How will people know to enter? Signage?
-How will they browse the clothes? Shelves, racks?
-Will they try them on? Where?
-How will they pay? POS, bank account, card reader?

Hope that helps to get you started. :)
