Whether it’s you whose “young” or your business: both come with it’s fair share of struggles. From cash flow to inventory, customer relations to social media, there’s a “Guru” for everything- then why does no one talk about the struggles of being “young” in business? From potential suppliers that do not take you seriously to facing hardships to keep going when your or your business’ age defines the odds of its success.
In this blog, I want to talk about some of these struggles or successes I have, through the journey of my young business Mimi’s Picks, in the hope that it reminds you that what you’re feeling has been experienced by many, how to tackle these problems, how to find he energy to constantly innovate and keep going and some tips to look at so you can learn from what I have learnt.
Mimi’s Picks was started in the midst of witnessing the widespread economic damage COVID-19 has caused, where I wanted to do something that makes it easier to support local.
