Opening your own boutique is a dream for many women. It sounds wonderful to run a store full of items that you love, connect with customers and working hours that fit in with your lifestyle.
But the road to retail success is not always smooth. To open a boutique you have to have an eye and be able to choose what is right, but then you have to be able to sit down and work with the numbers.
Research, research, research and then come up with a clear concept.
Consider the location. Location is huge.
Figure out your budget and stick to it.
You have to go in with your mind and your eyes wide open and make sure you save at least six months of full income before you open.
Know your documents. Know your neighborhood and your customer. Work your connections. You have to get out there, network and talk to people.

Moon river, wider than a mile
I’m crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you’re goin’, I’m goin’ your way

My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me
