Young Entrepreneur wanting some tips!

I am in an Entrepreneurship class at my university and I am getting to develop my dream of opening a coffee shop/ coffee delivery company in college towns across the Pacific Northwest. We have a business plan written up, and are working on different marketing strategies to market to our target market of college students. I am looking for tips that anybody would have for a young entrepreneur like myself starting out, especially for the coffee industry. If you have any feedback I would love to hear it

Dont giveup!

In reply to: Young Entrepreneur wanting some tips!

Generally Speaking, more startup fails and then succeed. You don't have to give up or lose hope. What I believe every startup need time to be established once you have started something think you need to work hard to make things work out. Take every step with much care and analyze each aspect of what you're working on keeping your self-update about the day to day coming trends. Don't be overconfident on anything and I hope once things start working out you will be able to compete for large chains such as Starbucks.
