    need your suggestions

    ycqhy123 Wayfarer

      hello all here

      I am newbie this forum and i need your help. I am a college student in China who will graduate two months later,and my major is international trade . After graduation , i want to own my own business. But i am confused in the first step that which commodity i should choose . As you know , there are a lot of commodities in China . I paid much attention to China handicraft which all made by hands , such as reed painting ,shell painting ,bamboo painting ,they are all incredibly beautiful and will never deform or fade in colour .They can be gift to your friends or a lovely addtion to your home . Are you interested in that?

      do you think that commodities will be accepted by people outside China? Can you give me your precious suggestion. Thanks

      looking forward your suggestion . Emal:ycqhysha@hotmail.com

          Need your suggestion, Welcome

          I suggest you develop or write a business plan. Put your ideas on paper. The plan serves as a tool to you, the owner of the business. The plan also reaffirms the viability of your ideas.

          Good luck

                  Is it possible to get a job working with someone who does what you want to do? You would learn so much and feel more comfortable when you are ready to start your own business.

                  Most people who want to start a business have a clear cut idea of what they want to do but just don't know how to do it. If you are unsure of what to sell, I would find a company who works in the field you want to pursue and try to get a job there. The experience you gain could be the difference between your business failing or flurishing.

                          It would be rather difficult for me to find you a job where you live. You should be able to go on a job seekers website such as monster.com or jobseeker.com etc.

                          I'm not sure if you are in China or the US but I'm sure there is a website wherever you are that will have jobs listed that you can apply for.
