There are a lot of things to consider:
- Is there a demand for the products you want to sell?
- Will this be a store in Main Street or online?
- Where will you get the money to start the business -- e.g. rent a space, buy your inventory, packaging, printing, build a website, set up your ecommerce system etc.
- Who is your target market?
- How will you reach them?
- What are your marketing plans?
- How will you make sure your customers buy from you, and not your competitors?
- What will you do if the economy turns for the worst and no one wants to buy sweet 16 dresses?
And these are just of the things you need to think about
"Easy" is a very relative term. Some entrepreneurs just have the knack for spotting opportunities and are willing to work smart and hard. Many simply don't have a clue as to how to go about it.

I've already cancelled our insurance, and the only place I have remaining to cut costs is labor.
So like you, I'll be letting some go.
But I'm a gun dealer, so I will only get busier as the insanity increases. It will be a delicate balance for me.
There is no easy ways to build a business, a lot of people will send you their web links telling you that you will make a lot of money if you join this business opportunity, then watch out, it 's a scam.
I'll give you some fact about some up and coming trends in the Natural Health and Wellness industries and let you make you own mind up about if this is something you are interested in.

It can be easy to start, but will require some hard work and dedication to keep it running. You may want to build a business website and show case your products there. You can find some free help at your local Small Business Administrative office (SBA.gov) Good luck and always follow your dreams.

I think your best bet is talking to the Small Business Administration. They will tell you what you need, but it will include a business plan, and a good set of books from the current owner. They are more likely to give you the loan than most banks -- and that is their job, to promote small business success.
