Every entrepreneur in every business faces challenges. The challenge, and the fun too, are in overcoming them. It’s much the same in the fashion business as well.
Here are some common mistakes fashion entrepreneurs usually make…

You’ll thus be able to sell at a profit. However it is good to realize that you must still have an efficient marketing plan. With an inefficient plan, entrepreneurs will just end up spending a lot of time and money. Their efforts are never going to be productive enough.
