preppykidprobs asked: For someone who wants to go into retailing and possibly interested in starting my own line one day, what is the best piece of advice you could give me?
Learn to sew. Find a mentor in a similar field and work for them if possible. Take notes on what your mentor is doing right and what you think they can help them improve on. Read as much as you can on how they could possibly improve their business. If possible give them suggestions and even take tasks on yourself that perhaps they did not think you were capable of. Learn the ins and outs of their business until you feel confident enough to do it on your own.
Everyone on earth can be your teacher if you know how to ask the right questions and how to improve yourself upon their answers.
I’m very impressed by this answer, especially the last line.
