Have Adequate Capital before Starting

First, like any business, you need some capital. You can't come into this like I got 20 bucks. The golden rule to use is to have two and a half times the amount of capital you require. So if you put your first inventory order in, let's say it costs 500 bucks, you want to have two and a half times that amount of capital just to account for any contingencies. For a reorder, who knows?

If you're not putting the money aside to do marketing, PPC marketing, to do all those extra things and potentially order, reorder inventory, you're going to be messed up. You're not able to succeed, and you're going to be stuck with a product and no capital to be able to do anything with it. And that first inventory order you put in is being quite small, you're probably run out of inventory. It's nice to have that extra capital to put that order in before all that cash flow comes back to you from Amazon.
