Her Advice to Aspiring Female Entrepreneurs
- To find good suppliers:
- Ask the following questions: What are your lead times? What are the regular costs and the shipping costs? What additional fees will be charged? What is the lead time needed to get the materials?
- Get samples of each material prior to committing to a supplier. Determine which supply is best for your materials
- Make sure you have qualified backup suppliers as well.
- If you can speed up the process for making or assembling your product, your cost will be produced
