Selling window art is like any other sales gig. You may have to take a lot of rejection before you make your first sale, but don’t give up. If you are prepared correctly you will find clients who will welcome your services. Older men like us are best off choosing one general look and then sticking to it. For example, if you feel good in a blazer and jeans, then don’t ditch the look just because you’re getting a little older. By all means, adapt it to fit your touch of gray.
Demand means how many people want your product or service. Live in a neighborhood with a lot of rock gardens, or with very few yards? Not as many people need their lawns mowed, so the demand for your service would be lower than if you lived in a place where everyone has a lawn.

Now that the beginning of the new year has come and gone, I have had a flurry of calls about starting a business in Spokane, surrounding areas and/or Washington State, many with the same questions: Do I need a business license? How do I set up an LLC? How do I get a trade name? I thought it would be helpful to run through a few of the state, city and federal registration requirements for business owners to be aware of before they open.

I’ve seen people do this and it’s embarrassing and rude, to say the least.

I know times are tough (I have been out of work for 4 years now) but this should be a time to pull together for our … Read more
The restaurants planned for The Market area will be just like the other restaurants within Spokane Arena are only open to ticketed guests of the events at the Arena during the times the doors are open for said events. My advice to someone looking into DS is to find something that you actually love and know that you could share with other people, not sell it to them, but share with them why you love it. I do fairs and events and I share with people how amazing these little hair clips are. I get excited about them and it shows. 90% of the women who try them on, end up buying them because they love them. So find something you LOVE and not something just to sell.
Example of what not to do: You may apply for a business license and get a UBI number. Then you apply online to register your LLC with the State. Then the Secretary of State issues a new UBI number. Now you’ve got to try and straighten matters out with the state and possibly the IRS. I talked with the Secretary of State’s office and the representative said that this can be a … Read more
