Open a Boutique

Hey there! My name is Laurie Bennett and I am a life time entrepreneur.

I have owned clothing boutiques (both online and brick and mortar), an ice cream franchise, eBay jewelry store, online consulting business, real estate management company, business opportunity website, a weight loss blog, travel blog and today, I spend my time blogging and helping others follow their online business dreams.

It doesn’t matter if you are interested in selling information, lotions and potions, jewelry, specialty socks, gifts, baby stuff, designer handbags, toys, rhinestone pet accessories, toe rings, supplements or whatever… you can do it easily and inexpensively with an online store.

Back when I was getting started, my dream was to own a clothing boutique. I went to college at the U.S.C. to study Business, Entrepreneurship. My sole focus was to learn how to open a store.

I prepared a business plan, graduated and went to work in real estate so I could save and keep fine tuning my plan. I was also looking for the PERFECT location.

It took a few more years, but I finally opened my boutique, LAURIE WEIR, and it is one of the highlights of my life.

I was doing what I loved, making money and I had total freedom. Right away, ladies were coming into my shop telling me I was their new, favorite store.

I Knew i was on to something.

In those days, you really needed cash to start a business, as there no such thing as online anything. Yes, I’m a bit of a dinosaur. To open a boutique, I had to lease space, build the store, buy fixtures and lighting and flooring and supplies – and that was all before I spent one dime on inventory.
Today, if you want a boutique, you just open one online. It can be done in a day, without much expense or any risk at all. And with fulfillment centers like Amazon, you don’t even need to house your inventory or ship anything if you don’t want.

It’s Amazing What an exciting world we live in.

I hope you will read my blog and learn all there is to know about opening a store. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions and check out my RESOURCES page because it’s really good – I promise.
