Getting Requests for My Jewelry, but Not Sure Where to Start My Business
by jasmine king.
I am working on starting a jewelry business. I am terrified!
I finally know what to do with my life, but I’m a little intimidated.
My background is art. I got into jewelry making a little over a year ago and although I am relatively inexperienced I seem to receive a lot of compliments and requests for my jewelry.
I’ve sold a few custom orders and I am working refining some of my designs.
The things that I am struggling with are:
- Cost, how do you determine how much it is you really need?
- How many pieces do you sale to begin with? I make earrings, necklaces, and bracelets.
- When is a good time to actually register your company’s name, and get a tax id?
I want to get started on selling jewelry as soon as I can, but I prefer to do this right because I want to be able to work at this full time and run my own business.
