Polymer Clay Charms Business Or Greeting Card Business?

I am thinking of starting a business and I want to know if I should start one for clay charms or greeting cards? I would also like to know how and where I could sell them. I was thinking people could call me to place orders and I could deliver it to them via mail or drop-off (depending on where they live). Please give me some tips on how to get my business started. Don't forget about my original question though. Thank you guys so much!

    You are the only one that can figure that out as everyone’s situation is different. Complete a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis http://www.businessballs.com/swotanalysisfreetempl... and write a business plan to prove that each business idea is workable. Go to http://sba.gov/smallbusinessplanner/plan/writeabus... http://www.bplans.com/ or http://www.score.org/template_gallery.html for instructions on how to write a business plan and sample business plans.

    You're going about this all wrong. People who succeed in business start a business that they have in depth knowledge of, skills in, or connections that give them an advantage. You shouldn't be asking random strangers what business to start.

    Do you know experience with either? Do you have connections that allow you to be competitively priced against competition? Or are these two random ideas that you've thought about?

    How and where to sell? You haven't figured this out yet, but you know you want to start one of the two? You are going to fail, and I'm not being rude or trying to put you down. Just telling you that you need to reevaluate your plan.
