Hi everyone, I am a young entrepreneur from india and me and my friend had this idea while in school to startup with minimum investment.basically the plan is to start a merchandise company.so what we where thinking is, we buy plain T-shirts and pants from wholesale merchants in a cheap price and then print them and later sell them on websites like Amazon. After it clicks and starts generating income, we were thinking of doing the same with shoes and sneakers.please let me know your opinions.

Just two questions to answer before you get started:

#1 Who will buy your shirts?

#2 Why wouldn't they buy literary any other shirt? There are shirts with millions of designs from $1 each to $1000 eachh.

My opinion on this is pretty clear in any of the books I've written, so I won't bother to repeat it here. You're welcome to stick your hand in the fire and discover all the wonderful feelings that come with getting burnt...

I suggest reevaluating your definition of an entrepreneur. An entrepreneur is someone that maximizes utility. It’s an input to production.

Take a step back and detach yourself from your desire for money and take a birds eye view on how resources are allocated.

The title comes with (...Ugh) in it. Your own opinion of it is such, so why elicit anybody else's when your subconscious is already giving you the cue you need.

Ask a better question, get better answers.

This was my own edit. His original title was just a lonely "Merchandise" which would illicit NO responses. In fact, it probably has to be the worst title every crafted in the 15 year forum history... which is why I edited it.

How far have you gone with reading MJ's books? Have you read all three, or are you still in the process of reading one of them?
