Here's the best advice we discovered for starting an online plant store:

#1: Monika Kalinowska, founder of Plant Circle:

We chatted with with Monika, founder of Plant Circle ($100K/month). In our interview, Monika says:

Learn to delegate and don't be afraid to hire people if you can. You can't be the best at everything, and eventually, something has to give. You have to be able to recognize it and delegate whatever you’re not good at to your employees or freelancers.


It's better done than perfect. Just do it, and you’ll figure it out on the go.

#2: Udit Khanna, founder of Root Bridges:

We chatted with with Udit, founder of Root Bridges ($27K/month). In our interview, Udit says:

Outsource as much as you can. If you don’t have the in-house capability to do SEO, communication, or PPC, don’t try to learn it. Just review metrics every 1-3 months.


If you try to solve more than 2 or 3 problems at a time, you’ll end up solving none of them. Focus on very few things, and keep doing them again and again till you get them right.
