How To Start Your Fashion Line On A Budget
Wednesday, November 6, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PST)
Disclaimer: This webinar is for those who want to start a fashion line with the least amount of financial risk. This webinar is not intended for designers who aren’t interested in treating their craft as a business. If you want to continue selling a piece here, a piece there, then I advise you don’t listen to me. I’m here to tell you how to create a profitable fashion brand the lean way! So if you’re into small risks & making tons of money, then get down & dirty with me on this webinar! Are you an aspiring designer who's been dreaming of starting their own line?
Chances are, one or both of these factors are impeding on your ability to take action:
You just don't know what it takes to start a clothing line. The dwindling economy just isn't in your favor to start a business. Well, to be honest with you, most designers like Marc Jacobs, Valentino, Ralph Lauren, have all been in your shoes. They too didn't know the ins & outs of starting a line nor did they have multi-million budgets from the start. In fact, Ralph Lauren used to sell men's ties door to door before he built his massive empire. So what did Ralph Lauren do that helped him take the plunge & start his line?
HE TOOK ACTION!
He did his research & he started small. That's the smartest way to build any business, especially in today's tough economy. Why? Because you minimize your risk, learn from your mistakes, & you get to know your business better inside and out. You get to deal with, understand, & fix problems instead of just throwing money at the situation - that is not for sustainable business.
My live webinar, How To Start A Clothing Line On A Budget, is a crash course on what it takes to start a brand with limited financial resources. Not only that, but it is also designed to help you build a lasting business, not just a line built on trends & hype.
