Hi, I'm new to the site as well. My husband and I are in the process of purchasing a small business (we sign tomorrow) and will soon be taking it to the web. The name of the store is Eastern Genuines, and it sells primarily Asian and African collectibles, Martial Arts supplies, ornamental weapons, jewelry and other nifty stuff.
The store is located in the historical Old Arcade in Cleveland, OH. We both work other jobs, but will be running the store ourselves. Our goal is for my husband to be able to quit his 3rd shift job and get paid from the physical store. I will probably stay at least part time at my current job, but hope to be able to do that by generating enough income through the website. (The physical store is my husband's gig and mine is the web version). The goal is more personal freedom in the long run.
Anyone else out there in a similar situation?
