When I married my husband in 2007, we planned to open a real convenience store thought its more like a mini grocery because the building was big. And so we did open our first business in Feb. 2008 the "VnL Store", to me its like a supermarket and grocery in one. We used to sell rice, softdrinks and beer, fresh produce, and cigarettes. It was doing great at the first 2 years but I must admit I get so tired of handling it. I get so tired of dealing with the government in the Philippines, they want you to get a permit with everything, tax you to death plus all the people who doesn't pay their tabs. And when I finally got my visa to the US last Nov. 2011, I handed my store to my parents which they decided to closed last 2012. That was the end of my business, it was fun and a lot of hardwork but I think its not enough of hardwork that I did maybe that's why it was not successful.
Now that I am in the US, even though we a full-time job(thanks to God), we can't help but think of how nice to have a small business overhere. I know its not easy compare in our country, here in the US there's a lot of competition, so business owner do a lot of things just to lure their customers. One thing I notice here in the US is they always send you weekly ads or deals in the mail. I think its a good idea. But if you have just started your business and you are new to the market you need a lot of help from the professional like this website that I found online.
