We’ve all had the dream.
The one that says, when am I going to open my own needlepoint store?
Then, with the economy still in the doldrums, reality hits.
And it bites.
First, there’s the bloodsucking rent you have to pay each month.
Then comes the stocking up the place with inventory part.
This usually stops most people dead in their tracks, before you even get to any of the other stuff, since, in this business, you often have to pay for most of your merchandise up front.
And there’s no return policy for unsold goods.
