              My shop will be called The cake Closet and will be located in metro Atlanta. I estimate 100 - 125,00 to start but this includes operating expenses for 6 mo so i am flexible on my numbers. I look to get a SBA loan for about 7 years and I am working on getting some seed money together. I have been to SCORE and had a counseling session with them but I did pursue The Edge Connection a program given through the local Women's Enterprise and completed a 12 week course and a Business Plan, It was not free how ever it was a lot more info and action steps for me so I got more than my moneys worth. Are you an invester I see you often ask to see plans and was wondering if you give feedback or look at the financials etc. Thanks for your prompt response to my question.
