I had set up The Woody Shack as an online shop, uploaded pictures on instagram and facebook mainly and a semi functional website and leadtime is 4-7 working days, only managed to get 1 sale and the rest of potential clients want to see actual samples which I don't have and others want instant purchases.
Actions I’ve taken so far
Trying to find funding to register the company and find a garden to pay for and set up a few samples as renting an entire place will be expensive.
My future goals
1.Owning an Outdoor furnitures shop
2.Having my own production team not outsourcing and just adding mark-up
3.Being a household name, leading in outdoor furniture
4.Exporting bespoke outdoor wooden furniture and miniature decorative wooden furniture
My motivations to work with a mentor
A mentor will help me set me on a clear path on what needs to be done, as I sometimes get overwhelmed on where to start and how to proceed.
