How to start a clothing line with no experience and no money? So I got a great question from one of my youtube viewer, love you guys, Danny who wrote and he say

"I am sixteen years old old I recently got the passion to be an entrepreneur. I have no experience in the field, I don’t have a lot of money. I’m really excited to start a business, preferably a clothing line. What kind of advice do you recommend for people like me and also, I am wondering on how I could start it off.

P.S.: I find your videos very helpful!”

Hey Danny congrats on finding your passion and thank you for watching all the videos. My advice for you to get started, okay, I have 3 steps for you:

1) Learn

2) find a mentor

3) start part-time, okay.



1. LearnWhat I don’t want you to do is go out, spend a lot of money, buy a whole bunch of inventory and you have these t-shirts sitting in your garage or your apartment or your mom’s house or whatever because that’s a surefire way to fail.

So LEARN is to go out and research all of the famous entrepreneurs that you look up to and specifically in the clothing line industry, okay.

So maybe it’s Giorgio Armani, or maybe it’s Sean Combs, or maybe it’s Donald Trump, or maybe it’s Vera Wang, whoever it is doesn’t matter. Go and research these guys and look how they got started.

What you’re trying to do here is learn from their mistakes, see what led them to become successful and model their success for your own company.

You got to learn because if you have no experience, you’ve never done this before, just like anything else, you’re going to make a lot of mistakes and if you go and learn from somebody then you’re going to increase your chances of being successful, okay?



2. Get a mentorWhat I would encourage you to do is go find a job with somebody who you look up to, who you respect, who’s built something that you want to build. Something that’s still small and manageable and easy to understand.

So I would look for a company that has 10 employees or less and has done what you’re trying to do and go offer to work for them. Even if it’s volunteer to get started, anything, because you want to learn.

You got to understand this business. And ideally you’re connected to the entrepreneur, right. You’re not going to go work for Sean Combs and be some low-level, you know, assistant and never get to talk to him.

You want to deal with an entrepreneur who’s got a 10-person company and that’s what you want eventually build up, right, and you’re going to get paid, ideally, to make mistakes, right?

They’re going to teach you how to overcome all the mistakes that you’re going to make because you’re brand new. It’s like trying to learn any other skill.

You’re trying to learn a language, the faster way to do it is go to that country and immerse yourself in learning the language and talk to people, right?

You’re trying to learn how to skateboard, the fastest way to do it is to go learn from somebody who can teach you how to skateboard, right, they’ll get you on the board and show you how they do it.

It dramatically cuts down your learning time, you’ll pick up things that you never thought was possible before and didn’t even think of and it really dramatically increases your chance of success.

Okay, at the same time you’re going to be making contacts, you’re going to understand how to run that kind of business so that when you do launch your own company, you’re way ahead of the game, okay.



3. Start part-timeYou don’t need to start this fulltime. You don’t need tons of inventory lined up.

I’d look at the sites that allow you to print on demand. You barely make any money on those sites, okay, that’s the truth.

But what it allows you to do is test your concepts, test your designs. You don’t make a lot of money but you’re not spending any money either.

And I’d much rather have you be able to test a concept, test a new t-shirt, test a hoodie, whatever your line is going to be, show that it works, show that people want this so then when you go out and create your own line all on your own, you know it’s going to work.

Right, you have customers, you have momentum, you have feedback without investing thousands of dollars into something that just sits on your shelf or in your mom’s garage.

That’s what I’d do. And when you got your first design, send it to me because I want to check it out. Believe. For those of you watching, you like this video, thumbs-up below.
