What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

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.
