    Hi everyone,

    my name is Ray and after a recent trip to China I am currently in the process of setting up two new businesses;

    Fitness Giant – a supplier of commercial fitness equipment
    Commercial Giant – a supplier of commercial and custom made furniture for offices, restaurants, nightclubs etc.

    Open to any suggestions or ideas for either of these businesses.

    Any referrals would also be great!

    Looking forward to getting started with it all!

    Hi Ray,

    Was the trip to China a planned trip to source or validate some suppliers, or something else? And… how did it go?

    Will one of those businesses be more of a focus that the other?

    Sounds like you’ll have your hands full with those two ideas. Best of luck.

    Hi Tim,

    The trip was just a chance to validate some suppliers which I had already spoken to. Also was introduced to other opportunities whilst being there so it all went really well.

    The fitness equipment would be more of a focus for me as I have been in the industry for 5 years. However, a close friend of mind will be handling the sales side of things for the commercial furniture otherwise things would get pretty crazy for me.

    Sounds like a good plan is unfolding. I hope it works out for you.
