In today’s economy, many people are beginning to find non-traditional means for making income. I personally have two jobs that fall under the category of “Small Business.” So you want to be prepared for everything from start to finish when it comes to your business and how it is run.

I want to go on this journey with you as we explore every aspect on your and my business adventure. My adventure is heading me to opening up a Boutique where I can sell Women’s and Children accessories, clothes, and everything in between. I have started going to craft expos to sell my items and to gain knowledge and experience on what will work for me and what will not. Through trail and error it took a lot of practice to become successful as a seller.

Being a Vendor is no easy task and I learned through great trail and error the do’s and don’ts of being a Vendor. This guide is a comprehensive how-to based on my experience.
