Default Hello Everybody!

Hi everyone! I'm super new here n also in business... I haven't started any business yet but i've been thinking of trying to do business ever since i started working rather thn being a employee till i retire.. I wan to do smth for myself rather thn letting my employer gets most of the credit frm my sweat n blood.

I hope coming here will help and teach me to hv a good start into the business world. Thank you!

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome!! I'm very positive i'm going to get much needed guidance frm everyone here..

@ Hdm
My initial business plan was to start a cafe shop. But as the more i plan for it i tend to get more negative thoughts abt it and kinda de-moralized nw..lol.. I knw theres a saying "you would nt knw till u try it 1st" so nw im trying to look for smth that im going to offer in my cafe shop which will attract n make more loyal costumer frm coming back. I might even learn cooking just so that i don't really too much on my workers... The place i'm frm is kinda small n the population too so market is definetely nt big...

I'm also open to any business idea other thn cafe shop..

Hello Billsan

Don't rush into anything. I hope you make the right decision for your business. Where are you based?

Hdm,

I'm frm Brunei.. Bet u never heard of it. Lol.. It's at S.E.Asia and its a small country..
Just to give u an idea where i'm at nw.. I've been saving up money for my business capital and so far im getting there.. The main problem i'm having nw is looking for a concept for my cafe shop. I wan it to offer smth diff so ppl will keep coming back and to build a strong loyal costumer base..
The other problem im facing is getting the shop license and registered.. The govt system here is kinda slow n it usually tkes 8 months to 1 year to get ur business approved and during that period u hv to start paying rents... Thats hw things r here! Im planning to go abroad to get some inspirations and ideas...

Good morning, billsan.

Yes, I've heard of Brunei, but have never been there.

I hope things go well for you, but most of all I hope that you enjoy the process.
I hope your travels are a success, and you find some good ideas.
