Moving on up!

Guest written by our friend Gladys Fuentes

When I moved to Carolina, I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted to do. I thought about going back to teaching and I also wait with the idea of getting into real estate, but when it came down to it, I knew it was time to finally start my store. I've been putting it off for a long time, but my heart has always been in retail and now was as good a time as any. After I found a space to rent in a couple of really good suppliers, I started working on the logistics. This included hiring two people to help me work with store, researching credit card processors at more and consulting with a tax attorney to make sure I had all my bases covered when it came to paying the bills. The store has officially been open for three weeks now and business is doing better than I expected. TheWho knew that taking this tiny leap of faith would be the best decision I ever made?
