To me, starting up own business is tough. We might be over looking a lot of things and might need pay a dear price before we could start earning stable profit. It's good that you have a good ambition. You should learn up step by step and prepare yourself to open your own store. So, I suggest to approach your boss of your hotel. Recommend him to setup a small convenient store, which is selling some daily necessities to the customers. So, you could manage the store and internet booth in the same time. By managing the store, you will know then in and out of the daily operation. After that, once you got enough savings, you can start the business on your own. Good luck and happy conducting business!

Hope you are able to accumulate more savings for your own store over the past 2 years. Then you will be nearer to your goals By the way, you could start to do some survey, during your free time, to know what commodities are having higher demands. You won't want to sell something people not willing buy, right? So, a visit to the nearby store will give you some hints on what to sell and what not to sell. Good luck and all the best diansinta!

Is it fine with him, for you to setup a hotel convenient store next to the internet room? I think the business will be good them, especially under your supervision

You need to have your store in a place where there are no other stores. In particular you need to make sure there are no big supermarkets nearby. (Studues have shown that when there are supermarkets nearby, customers so to the supermarket and ignore small stores).

You should make a study if its worth it in your area. Perhaps seeking help from professionals such as banks or people who are experienced in this line of trade. May you achieve your dream. I'll keep you in my prayers.

Hi dian, who do the great job to reactivate your two years old discussion, you, yourself or cheongyc? Anyway I got great interest to share some words here about your dreamed grocery. I hope you already owned one right now. I suggest you to have those adorable souvenirs like key holders, kites, puppets, ... and stationeries like pens, post cards etc with attractive traditional and cultural characteristic design of Bali. I will visit your store if I were to have the chance to revisit Bali again. posting and have a nice day.
