Starting A Snow Boarding Business



Starting A Snow Boarding Business

Starting a​ Snow Boarding Business
For a​ while I​ have been considering starting a​ snow boarding business and really do think it​ is​ something that will have a​ lot of​ potential .​
In my area there are two slopes near by and there is​ no local businesses that service us snow boarder’s needs .​
What I​ would like to​ do is​ start a​ snow boarding business that sells snow boarding clothing and snow boarding equipment and of​ course boards themselves .​
For years I​ have been trying to​ think of​ a​ business idea and I​ really feel that incorporating my love for snow boarding with my love for business would be a​ great idea .​
I​ done a​ degree in​ business however since achieving this degree I​ have yet to​ actually go out there and give it​ a​ try in​ the​ real world on​ my own .​
I​ am currently a​ business consultant for an​ accountancy firm,​ and although I​ enjoy my job my true desire is​ to​ go out and do it​ on​ my own,​ and for myself .​
What I​ will need to​ do is​ get a​ business loan at​ first from the​ bank and buy a​ property and stock .​
I​ was thinking that one of​ the​ best ways to​ ensure that I​ get business is​ to​ position the​ shop as​ near to​ the​ slopes as​ I​ can possibly get .​
I​ was also thinking that I​ could reach agreements with the​ slopes under which they could effectively drive customers to​ my shop .​
In order to​ do this,​ I​ intend to​ organise a​ meeting with the​ managers of​ both slopes separately and decide on​ what they think is​ the​ best way that we​ can work together.
I now realise that the​ next step is​ going to​ be to​ put my business idea into writing and create a​ business plan .​
This is​ something that I​ do for my customers,​ and I​ am now going to​ have to​ go out their and do it​ for myself .​
I​ am also going to​ consider ways that I​ can market my business on​ the​ internet .​
From speaking with my clients I​ have noticed that very few actually achieve much success from their online marketing and there is​ a​ multitude of​ reasons why this is​ .​
The first thing that strikes me is​ that although they were willing to​ invest in​ a​ website they were completely unwilling to​ invest in​ online marketing .​
What I​ tell my customers is​ what I​ intend to​ do myself .​
I​ want to​ incorporate marketing online into my business plan and hopefully I​ can benefit from my attempts to​ gain business from a​ global audience .​
At the​ moment I​ am aware that there is​ a​ lot of​ competition online,​ however with a​ carefully articulated online marketing plan I​ am sure that there is​ success to​ be had online .​
I am also hoping that in​ the​ coming weeks that I​ can meet with a​ supplier and hopefully get a​ better idea of​ the​ kind of​ profit margins that I​ can be looking towards .​
I​ have been told that in​ order to​ attain the​ best results I​ am going to​ have to​ meet minimum order requirements and then the​ supplier will give me the​ best prices .​
I​ see this as​ being a​ very realistic goal,​ as​ I​ am sure that I​ will be able to​ think of​ ways that I​ can meet the​ minimum order requirement .​
Firstly,​ I​ could collaborate with another supplier and we​ could buy in​ stock together .​
This is​ something that several of​ my clients do,​ and it​ results in​ cheaper rates that both of​ the​ buyers can benefit from.
So I​ have everything planned but I​ just have to​ go ahead and actually do it! the​ thing is​ that I​ am also going to​ have to​ try and stick with my job for as​ long as​ I​ possibly can .​
If I​ decide to​ leave my job too early then I​ will spend a​ period without a​ wage,​ however I​ should really inform management of​ my intentions.
