don't forget about mistakes
Apr 3, 2015 10:12PM PDT

What are the most common mistakes when writing a business plan? When writing a business plan is necessary to comply with many different rules, there are elements whose presence in the business plan is very important as well to make sure that you are properly accounted for and have not made one of the most common mistakes business plan:
1) to postpone the case until later;
Too many businesses make business plans only when they no longer have time to think.
2) Careless attitude towards money;
A very big mistake in the preparation of a business plan is a careless attitude toward money. Most people think in terms of profit and not assuming that cash.
3) Allowance for ideas;
Do not overestimate the importance of the idea. You do not need a super idea to start a business, you need time, money, perseverance and common sense.
4) One size fits all;
It is impossible to do business all the same. What's good for one another will collapse. Business plans just will work structured with your business.
5) Fear of forthcoming changes
Create a business plan is not as difficult as you might think. There are good books to help, many advisors can be found among the Small Business Development Center.

I bet you need to have a feasibility study first before deciding to open an online business. That is the best thing that you could do for now.

Since you already have the exact idea about the product you want to sell which is fashion accessories. Next thing to do is to create a social media page like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media tools. You can start it from Facebook Page, upload some pictures of your products, publish contact numbers, do some promotions and soon you'll be getting enough orders. So, Goodluck!
