I am 35 years old and have been running three successful bookstores for five years. My customers think I have the right mix of books to appeal to younger and older readers. My “coffee-house nights” which feature local authors reading passages of their books to espresso-drinking customers have been a big hit.
I am thinking about expanding to eight stores. I have identified the new locations. They seem just right. My two biggest problems are that I do not have enough money to support this expansion and I am not sure I have the skill to manage all eight locations.
What type of business organization do you recommend? Why?
