Opening up an aquarium shop. Good idea? Possible?0koala2012-09-14 12:13:04
I live in a big city that has only Petco and PetSmart to pet stores . I've been seriously thinking of opening an aquarium shop here . The city has about 50,000 people , with many small towns that have described 3000 in the population of each, within 50 miles . There are two other aquarium shops about 40 miles away, and the oldest , the old man has come to old to take care of her , and their tanks are always rough, and the fish are always sick or dead . In the aquarium shop , man specializes in saltwater fish , so I feel like I really have an advantage knowing freshwater fish very well . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus My problem is , is that I have 21 years , and I have no credit . I had some medical expenses that put me in debt , but now that they are paid, I'm starting over. There are a lot of aquarium enthusiasts around here , and most difficult of all is the fact that , for both fish and aquarium equipment , you have to go to 5 hours to the big city to get something decent or have any variety , or you have to order online , which makes things incredibly expensive . I also know that fish tanks cost a lot , but would it matter if using pre - used fish tanks in my store ? Oh, and there are all kinds of banks that provide small business loans for this? and in my situation ? I have no savings rate , as my husband goes bankrupt because I foreclosed on a couple of years ago , so it would not be involved in this at all .
Buying a pizza shop, good idea? Money potential? Is my plan any good?1Samatha Priest2012-10-24 07:12:02
I have 22 years . I saved almost $ 40K . I have a degree in two years that I will get where I want to be. I can go to school , but I hate the school and see no purpose in just getting a better career . I've had my own online business in the past two years and the average income was $ 30K a year , but the economy has killed my business literally . MedlinePlus Would I be able to get a loan , even at my age and to buy an established business and run it ? Of course I do more research on any industry , and I have my comb cpa in the financial statements of the company . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I just want to know simply , of all present experience , if I would be able to shop around for say two months , finding the best deal , use only $ 20K ( loan more money ) and buy a business ? And I'll be able to make at least $ 30K annual net this business ? How about $ 50 thousand a year ? Would it be a matter of 60 hours per week or more ? It would be quite reasonable to sell it and buy a bigger one and follow up? Or buy several businesses , perhaps putting a manager in the position to do more work , but I pay less than what I could have time to open new business? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Thank you so much!
Is opening this business a good idea?0sammy boy!2012-10-14 22:58:59
I know it's risky in this economy , but hear me out . I live in Rochester , MN small town, but our downtown is very busy for the Mayo Clinic and stuff , my mom wants to open a restaurant that specializes in Sudan / Egypt food , baklava specifically because she is Sudanese does very well around the world in the Sudanese community here thinks it's the best at what he does, but the audience would not be Sudanese people anerican people because most of the American people love baklava ( although this time , when my sister bought baklava poorly in school and they all still loved him ) and love to try different foods . Baklava is called Gawa , located in the center , the most important thing would be to sell baklava , but also when they buy other things that would get a free baklava , so make them want more , you can not have just one xD . She could get some kind of a business partner to help with the businessy . Now our income is 14,000 a year so it would have to get some kind of loan , do you think she could get one with this business plan ? ( It is a more organized after this, but if the same idea) MedlinePlus Sorry for the bad writing I was writing a little fast MedlinePlus Thanks for the helpful replies

Is opening a night club a good idea In this economy?1dj2012-10-01 04:37:03
I have 20 years of age. It is a goal of mine to own my own business . I'm looking to get a bank loan and try to open one here in Cincinnati . This is a small place and we have no club is very nice to go . I have good ideas to start one and have something different to liven things up here .

Thinking of opening my own Shop?0 m1ng-3. -2012-10-15 23:41:30
With the lack of jobs especially where I live , I've been thinking about opening my own shop . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I found a great store of game and know what I want to sell (clothing for children aged 10-16) MedlinePlus MedlinePlus That's basically all I know !
