Does anyone have advice on how to start my own business? I am looking for success stories that might shed some light on the next steps I should take. This has been a very hard process and there are times I want to throw in the towel and give up. Any advice on topics such as: How much do you invest of your own money in your startup?, Should you partner with a distributor (if selling a product)?, How do you get a store buyer interested in your product?, Is social media really a valuable commodity? any other thoughts...
Thanks for your time and tips!
