I have plans of starting myself a business that would be based off leather goods. I was curious in knowing how many of you have found manufacturers and factories for your products. I have been having a hard time being able to find ways to connect with these manufacturers to see how much they would charge per product.
When you started off did you do this through an agent, used someone on fiverr, or did you contact the manufacturer yourself? Any help would be greatly appreciated. As I am still in the creating stage do you have any resources I should take a look at on building a business and coming up with a strategy and plan?
