How much inventory for start up clothing brand?

How much inventory for a start-up clothing brand?

I’m not sure if anyone has any experience with clothing start ups here… I’m in the process of creating a women’s clothing brand (direct to consumer) and am in need of some advice!

I have about 10 different styles most come in 2 to 3 colorways. I ideally want to keep inventory low starting out given I’m still working on building brand awareness. Inventory will obviously also depend on lead times. I know I need to carry more mediums than other sizes, I’m just not sure how much more is reasonable.

As a start up, how much of each item, in each colorway and each size should I carry? I was going to size tops XS-XL and bottoms 0-12… should I reduce my size range starting out or will that massively impact the fit?

Are these the right steps to start a mobile app LLC?

I'm starting a mobile app company. I explained more in a pervious post to r/startups but I won't reiterate.

Here are my goals of things I need to setup before actual development can take place:

  1. Purchase domain for company
  2. Purchase G Suite so I have a company email
  3. Submit paperwork for LLC
  4. Use the company email to register for Android/iOS publisher licenses
    1. I have my personal iOS license which I think I will cancel if I'm only publishing under the new company.

So that's basically the path I'm going to take. I assume it's right to make any developer account under the newly created business email. Am I missing anything there?

I have access to a Windows and Mac computer, but the Mac one is pretty outdated. I also have an Android and iOS phone, because I've been publishing apps for the past few years. But eventually I need to get a Mac and make it my main development computer. Which model would be best for this? Should I wait for ARM?

If you care about remote employees, start tracking their performance

Remote work has been thrust upon us, but are business leaders ready for it?

More than half of U.S. companies now plan on making working from home a permanent option. However, most of us still don’t know what an optimal business machine with remote operations looks like simply because reaching that point requires years of trying, testing and adapting.

One major thing we haven’t all realized yet is that, without the visibility of face-to-face contact, data is essential in tracking employee progress and well-being, as well as the company’s overall health.

And not just any data — granular (ideally automatic) data is needed to give us accurate insights and stop us from making burdensome mistakes, especially in tech companies where even more of the work effort is purely digital. Take productivity. If we were to focus on people’s work hours alone, we’d likely get the wrong picture. Half of software developers have been working more during quarantine. But what does this tell us about the toll this workload is taking on their mental health? Or the quality of their work, and how much extra time is going toward bringing their tasks up to scratch? Nothing at all.

Putting data at the core of project management is not about Big Brother; far from it. Data isn’t inherently good or bad; it just gives you the tools to implement intelligent strategies and reduce errors. If anything, it will minimize the number of times you have to interfere with employees to ask for updates and micromanage.

Embracing data to create your new remote-ready project management strategy will enhance you and your team’s work lives in the following ways.

Reduce wrong decisions

Managers don’t have accurate visibility into remote employees’ productivity. Radio “silence” from team members can be misinterpreted to mean they’re not working enough, especially independent workers like software engineers. You might think you wouldn’t notice if they spent half their work hours on a coffee break, and your mind can run away with you. (The opposite — for those who talk too much — is also true).

However, a digital lifestyle produces digital indicators. Data-driven project management tools such as Wrike can tell you about employee output, but also about iterations and quality indicators on the same task. Such as how many times a pull request went back to a developer, why (due to error or for minor improvements?), or how many other employees stepped in to help before the final product was achieved.

Best way to start brainstorming alone?

I've been searching on youtube and google, ways to brainstorm ideas, it always show group methods, well, I don't have anyone to do this with. Even if I search with the "alone" keyword, I can't find anything relevant. If any of you guys knows a way that maye you use and is willing to share, I'll be much appreciated!

Edit: I'm a software developer / Full-stack developer so I mainly / always try to brainstorm ideas for new software, webapps or mobile apps

I’m contemplating quitting my job to start my own company, what’s the worst case scenario?

I'm 26, single, with $ 200k in savings, and I am also a caretaker for my disabled brother.

I've been contemplating quitting my full time web dev job or going part time to pursue entrepreneurial endeavors. The thing is, i dont have that much experience. I only have 1 year of web dev experience.

But I've been spending much of my free time building an app that uses crypto microtransactions, and its the only thing that excites me nowadays.

If I were to quit my job, and go full time entrepreneur mode. Would I still be able to re-enter the workforce if I fail miserably? I make only $ 45k per year right now. I feel underpaid, and I feel like my growth has stagnated at work, and I want to take risks while I'm still young.
