Last Saturday, I had a telephone conversation with a good friend of mine, Shiela. We were both busy since the start of the year that we didn't really have the chance to catch up on each other. It was Black Saturday but I picked up the phone to let her know that I am at my in-laws' place at that time. Our conversation went from simple hello's to planning on a new business venture together but still can't agree on one fixed business venture yet. Anyway, in one of our 'serious' business conversations, we thought of putting up an online store to sell used but fashionable clothes and other used items. Here in the Philippines, it's called 'ukay-ukay.' I don't know yet how profitable it can turn out and how saturated and stiff the competition is in this kind of market and whether there'd be a huge demand for it because it still needs some serious feasibility study.
I think it would be fun and exciting to have our own business but I am not quite sure if it's a good thing to have a friend for a business partner. They say it is possible to lose your friendship in business although I don't think it will ever come close to that situation. Hopefully! I am really excited to have our own business up and running that I have actually envisioned that it will grow big to the point that we can use postcard mailing services to advertise on our business. Anyway, this one is still in the works and in the brainstorming level. The business idea could push through but it could also shift to another business venture. You know how women are - fickle-minded species!
