You are correct - very hard to judge. Even harder for those who do not have first hand expereince with your b-plan as you do. Here is my suggestion - how long will it take for you to get more inventory? If this period is one month or one quarter or one year - then try to determine how much you think you will sell in that period. Then that is your inventory. What you will find is that as you move forward and get a better idea on what you sell - you will make adjustments to your level of inventory. The goal is always to keep only what you need - but have the means to quickly get more if and when you need it. Thus, you can keep the bare minimum but can get (through relationships with your suppliers) what you need when you need it.
Right now, you just have to make your best guess (which could also be determined by your financials - how much you need to sell) - as improve as you learn.
