Default Starting New Business

Hey Iím starting on a new business for myself. Iím not sure I want to restrict myself to just ONE thing. Itís gonna plunge into a business which has a bright prospect. I am just collecting information from market and friends so that I can decide and start off ASAP.
Iím not yet even legal age to drink yet so Iím really just trying to research a lot of stuff on my own right now. Already have a website up to incorporate e-commerce into it. Already have a great location but having a hard time finding a good distributor for computer parts.

Anyone who owns a business or even knowledge of business running successfully may advice for a novice like me?

Don't worry Joseph, I was able to buy a house before I could even legally drink as well. You just gotta continue doing the research and learn directly from those who are running the same business as you. You don't have to copy them word for word just reflect their concept and turn it into your own.

if you want to start a business, you need to know what kind of business you want to have. so first you need to specify what are your interest, the resources around you and how much time you can devout for it. capital is a must too.

so if you are looking around for a good business, try to focus first at what you want to do and follow its possibilities.

I am having a hard time figuring out why you're having a hard time!?!?

Computer business? Like... uh... aren't there 100's of distributors out there? Besides, what problems are you having??

If its something like they want you to purchase $XXX and you don't want to, well, welcome to the real world. That's one way to protect existing customers.

Also... why can't you have more then one supplier? Most companies do. One supplier backs up the other.

Understanding a little more about what problems you're having in getting a distributor would help.

Good luck!
