In some ways, it seems like yesterday.
In others, it seems like an eternity.
For me, the fall of 1992 was the beginning of a new business, a new lifestyle, and a whole new perception of operating a home-based business.
I thought I knew everything. After all, as a SCORE small business counselor, I had been counseling other startups. I was the expert. I had started and sold other businesses. This gift basket business couldn’t possibly be any different.
Was I ever wrong!
Looking back all these years later, I realize that I knew much while knowing very little. I had a lot of misconceptions way back then.
If you already have a gift basket business, they are probably familiar to you. If you’re just thinking of starting one, they are things that you should be aware of.
