    I would love to start a business. I have a basic idea of what it’s going to be about but how do I make that idea come to life. Bear in mind that I’m only 16 and I’m not financially capable to invest in it and although it is a whim, I am going to give it my 100% (I wanted to open and run a business since I was in year 8 🌸). I don’t have anyone to help me or guide me and also it’s going to be an online business. I would love some advice from someone who has been successful 💛

    Use bigcartel to set up an online business for free.
    If you want to sell clothes don't buy anything in bulk; get clothes made when an order comes in - it may cost more but there is less risk.
    If you want to work with other people make sure you've allocated them specific roles or diffusion of responsibility will most definitely occur.

    Hey thanks for your reply 💕 my idea was more like a revision site but one like SnapRevise or any YouTube channel. However, not copying them but making revision videos, notes etc that will help students and myself 😂😂 I just don’t know how to start and how do I make someone buy mine instead of using free resources (of course it’s only going to be £5/£10,compared other paid sites. I seen one for £200 😳) and how do I make good quality “products”.
    How’s your clothing brand and how did you promote it ❤️ Does it make good money as I might start a business make money and learn the basics and then make my “revision site” 🎀

    You really do need some funds to start, I'd say £200-£500 is a good beginning.

    Same as me. Like any business it will cost money to initially set up. I want to create a decent clothing business, but, have not clue what I could do with a name. I could set up a decent website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc to get some marketing, its just the name and sourcing the actual product thats the hard part for me.
