So I have two business ideas that I am fully committed to starting. One of them is a clothing company that I have been wanting to start for quite sometime now. The other is a online company that I am insanely stoked about trying to start up. The thing is, I am starting the clothing brand with a buddy of mine. So it will be a little easier to focus on both with having someone accompany me while I'm starting the other. I am very young(turning 20) and have a part time job, but just want to see what others think about this. I know internet start ups can be difficult especially with no technical experience, but I'm just so eager to get things started. Thanks for the responses in advance!
I think as a first-time entrepreneur who is non-technical, you should focus 100% of your energy on your clothing business with your buddy. There is far less required to make a clothing business a success than a startup run by a non-technical founder. I don't mean to trivialize the challenges of running an apparel company (there are many) but comparatively, there is a greater chance of you having success with the apparel business than a startup.
But you *reduce* your chances of success by diluting your focus with other ideas.
Happy to talk to you in a call about starting off on the right foot with a cofounder.
