I am VERY frustrated about this sewing business. It seems everytime I turn around there is another brick wall to climb.
I,ve not got any response to my cards. Very little word of mouth work. I thought I would sell on ebay till I got going good. NOW, my computer internet service should be changed to dail up to keep from having freeze ups on ebay. Which means my new , beautiful business cards will have the wrong ding, dang, e-mail address on them. Does this stuff stop soon. I just want to work.
Thanks for letting me vent. Any advice is welcome.

Sorry to hear thing aren't getting off to a good start. It's not too often, though, that a new business gets off to a stupendous start...patience will prevail!!

What kind of business are you in? What do you make to sell? If you think you've got something good going I'd say invest in your business and get a website. Register your domain name and get some type of account that has at least 1 email address for it. That way, no matter what happens with your internet service provider, your email address should stay the same. Then, if you're up to you it you can start your own online store.

There is so much faith you need to keep a fledgling business going. If you can just stick it out past the rough starting times then you should be good to go.

Just make sure you have a marketable product and the rest should fall in place.

Best of luck to you!!
