I own a resale clothing store and have one employee, my estimates have me at > $50,000 this year. My source of stock is in Southern California and I turn a sizeable profit on everything I sell.
My current goal is to expand by opening a second location and to build my brand through social media and the internet.
Would going to college be worth it to learn finer points of running a business? Or would it be better to save money and just read text books? Things I need to learn are
>Cost Vs Results when it comes to advertising
>Picking optimal locations
Currently I don't think there's any way to run my business more proficiently besides changing the hours and the rest is advertising so I'm not sure if college is necessary.
On a related note, if anyone knows good areas for vintage clothing stores (think hipster areas), let me know. Outside of California I'm thinking Colorado, Texas, Oregon or Washington. In SoCal I know San Diego, Long Beach, Santa Monica/Venice and Silver Lake are all hot tickets (but I honestly hate California personally). I'm more concerned with scoping out which locations would make you the most money down to the neighborhood and street.
Pic related, I'm currently feeling like Pepe and would like to be Wojak.
