thanks. hope i never cross paths with any of you in the future.
but that definitely won't happen, cause i'm doomed to failure.

and next time i post a link i'll make sure you don't have to copy-paste. shoot those two buttons are a real doozy.
2 posts in and you obviously already fail at social media at networking. You remind me of every fucking kid that wants to open a shop. Since you probably don't have a pair and will never respond to this I don't know why I'm asking these questions.

Rent/own location
Target demographics
Distance to the slopes
Urban or rural
Ski town or urban
What brands are you carrying
What's your 2, 5, and 10 year plan
How are you going to embrace the ever changing landscape of online retail while being a brick and mortar
Do you have a standing relationship with reps in your territory
Competition
Grass roots
Will you be privately financed through personal loans from friends/family or are you going to have to get a loan from a bank.
Will you have an ever changing line of credit to sustain you if something changes
Exit strategy
Social Media
What makes you different than everyone else.

If you don't have any answer to even one of these questions you're fucked.
