Our research illustrates various steps in starting your own business. Contrasting the two plans, a clothing business, and a service dog training business, this presentation will demonstrate similarities and differences. Throughout our semester of BA-378, we learned how the formation of a small business may have many of the same challenges as well as prosperities.
For the first plan, in today's world, there is a problem with an overabundance of clothing waste. In order to mitigate this problem, I will suppress this with the recycling of old items and rehoming them to customers. I already sell my personal and upcycled clothes on my Instagram, named SaintsSeconds. My vision is to expand this online business to include a wider consignment audience utilizing additional platforms.
For the second plan, in Montana, there is a lack of reputable service dog trainers. Many of these specific types of trainers aim to help owner-trained dogs, which can lead to unsatisfactory standards. My objective is to improve the standards for these types of working dogs. By handpicking the dogs/puppies that will be selected into the program will help to reduce the percentage of failure rates. All of the task-based training will be conducted at the facility. The clients are carefully selected based on their lifestyle and ability to uphold the standards of care for a service dog.
