In a dream world I’d love to own my own gift shop, selling all hand-made items. I love to make things and have a ton of talented friends whose products would be great to include too. I don’t have a clue about getting something like that off the ground, but I do know there are companies like Lendio that exist to help small business owners get matched up with financing. Lendio can even help with things like writing a business plan.
If I ever get to the point where I’m ready to make the dream of the shop a reality, I think Lendio would be a great resource for getting started.
