Hello, fellow SuN people,
If you were giving the talk that I am scheduled to give next week, how would you balance it? My thoughts are that I will be there mainly to encourage, pass on the best advice I have received personally, and provide a list of books and resources for the students to do their own research.
One of the great nuggets of advice I received (too late for my first couple of products) that I still think about all of the time and will be passing on is: Plan on spending 30% of your budget on the actual product and 70% on marketing.
SuN will definitely be one of the resources I will be recommending. Everything a young entrepreneur needs to know can be found here.
I hope some of you might post your best advice to High School juniors and seniors who have a talent and interest in fabric and fashion. There will be other people at the conference speaking on job opportunities in the field, my topic is starting your own business.
