          Start by researching your business idea. Create a cashflow forecast. You also need to decide your business structure, whether you will make it an LLC, or a sole proprietorship. Another thing you need to do is incorporate your business. Learn as much as you can about your competition or how similar businesses work.

            Businesses of all sizes can benefit from careful planning. Writing a business plan will force you to objectively develop and evaluate your tactical and strategic plans. It will also help you identify the opportunities and risks encountered as a result of your decisions. my advice is to always ask the funding organization what format they prefer.

                      All successful businesses keep detailed records. The main important part is maintaining discipline and motivation. If you provide better service for your customers, they'll be more inclined to come to you the next time they need something instead of going to your competition. You have to focus on your business and its following factors :- Better product manufacturer, Better reliable product pricing, Better product market reputation, Better product marketing

                        In my personal experience, you should definitely research product demand and various income streams before going into business. Never assume you know or that it will work out somehow. Sizing up the competition beforehand and working out strategies to overcome obstacles that arise through competition and market shifts will go a long way to helping you prepare for the road ahead.

                          No you wouldn't run into any issues. You may have to pay duties on those exports though (especially if Mexico is a manufacturer of clothing and they want to protect their industry). I don't know how feasible it would be though, so you should definitely find out what duties and other costs are and factor in those to see if it is worth it to export to Mexico.
