i stumbled across this community, and i joined even though it doesnt seem active. hopefully more people will find it!
Location: portland, maine
Standpoint: i am currently in the process of starting my own small business with a friend. we are working on inventory so that we can do trunk shows, art shows and web-based business.
Hustle: we are custom jewelers and artists. we want to sell our own line of jewelry, handbags and accessories. we also want to sell locally made items and art on consignment.
knowledge: well, im fairly new to this, and im lucky enough to be surrounded by people who have been sucessful in starting their own business, and also people who have failed or quit. i have a lot of brains to pick, and its been VERY helpful. dont be afraid to ask questions! even to strangers. also, the anti nine to five guide has been a real encouraging read. pick it up!
Goals: well, hopefully it wont take five years to open a physical shop! that is our goal!
Hey everyone. Im Nikki, the so-called "maintainer" of this community. I havent updated in ages but I've seen a few people making posts and I felt the need to say something. Anything. So here I am. Im going thru a transition period so my net access isnt secure and I havent unpacked my computer so I wont really be able to do anything of any importance until then. Im trying to think of some more things to put in this community. To make it more resourceful. Theres alot of talented folks joining and I dont want yall to think this community is BS. Its not, I promise ;)
More updates to come.
