I had a meeting this morning with two board members of the Downtown Toms River Association and two members of SCORE. (Service Corps of Retired Executives), We talked about a small shop I want to open. It'll be called BREAKTHROUGH GALLERY and will be boutique for fine arts/fine crafts.
We talked for forty five minutes about all the ins and outs of starting a small business. I supplied them with a business plan and a 90 day planner.
The atmosphere in the room was very positive and I felt that they were all moved and a little excited by what I want to accomplish. They tell me that they'll contact me within a week with their final decision.
If the response is "YES", then I'll be opening up a small retail space in downtown Toms River and at very, very good monthly rent that includes my utilities and internet. My Grand Opening will be June 8, 2018.
Stay tuned for further updates!
