Hey Fam! I Finally Found My Niche!
Let’s begin with an awesome, quote!
“Don’t be in a hurry to condemn, because he doesn’t do what you do. Think as you think, or as fast. There was a time when you didn’t know what you know today.”
— Malcolm X
Let’s dive right into it!
Starting an inspiring athletic line has been one of the many best decisions, I could have made in my life, and in all honesty. I wish, I would have done this a long time ago! The feeling of investing your hard earn money into your own idea is absolutely priceless! The journey has been stressful, overwhelming at times, frustrating, time consuming, and overall REWARDING! There are steps, we took to get too this stage of our journey as business owners. I say “WE,” because Sankofa Athletic Apparel, LP is a limited partnership. I would like to share a few of the steps we took that could possibly help other aspiring entrepreneurs in the beginning stages.
Step one! Figuring out the name of the business, vision, and how to execute the vision in the beginning phases.
Step two! Tons and tons of research, reading, attending workshops, and connecting with mentors.
Step three! We registered our business name with the state of California (https://www.sos.ca.gov/business-programs/business-entities/), and while waiting for the results. I would advise everyone to take their time on completing the paper work. It cost to registration your business name, and may defer depending on states. If your registration gets rejected do not waste any time to respond, because this process can take 1-3 months.
Those three steps are some of the beginning steps, let me know your thoughts, questions, and if you would like for me to cover more about our entrepreneur journey.
