I'd like guidance for the legal aspects of business so I don't overlook or miss any important things or possible assistance I may be eligible for. I'd like some help with my website. I have created it, linked it to Stripe, social media & my email, plus added professional photos, but need reassurance and also help with how to connect retail products to it and testing it out.
Actions I’ve taken so far
I took a business course for 12 weeks this past fall/winter. Created social media, website, held zoom classes, done private parties, designed and completed renovation on brick and mortar, making my own sign, planted hundreds of perennials, have irrigation installed, self teaching styles for floral arrangements and practicing to perfect the recipes and teaching processes. Reached out to many others in my field for advice. Met in person, others in my field. Made some connections with other local businesses. Filed an LLC and have my tax ID #
My future goals
To have my flowers grow amazingly and narrow down to my favorites and the ones that I grow well. Have many themed floral workshops. Have a wildflower field for occasions and photographers. Sell a little retail. I also want to start a scholarship fund and try to give back to the causes that are near and dear to me, personally. I am okay with doing it scared and being a C student, but like to avoid mistakes if they can be prevented. I also love reassurance.
My motivations to work with a mentor
I think a mentor would be amazing as it would be a means of learning from someone who used to be in my shoes and a source of accountability and motivation. I also would feel better about asking questions to a mentor instead of guessing because they may be better at advising me. I don't really have a mentor in this field, I only reach out to social media groups or by messaging.
