FIND THE RIGHT FACTORY
If you're not lucky enough to already know manufacturers, you'll need to do research on various factories, their experience and their customer satisfaction rate.
The factory needs to be able to provide a quality product in a timely manner. It's suggested that you visit the factory and request samples of the product before placing a large order.
LEARN OR REFRESH BUSINESS SKILLS
Having a creative mind is a wonderful thing of course because this is how you came up with the idea in the first place.
But if you want those ideas to be planted in a bed of results, having a business background, or taking business courses will give you the tools needed to grow and expand.
REFLECT & MAKE CHANGES IF NEEDED
Part of being successful is knowing what's working and what's not. In business, pride cannot trump reality.
If there's something that's not working, you have to be able to take a step back, look at your processes and tweak the things that are causing more harm than good.
