EcoAquatics is a hobbyist company started by a sophomore high school student. Its primary goal is to allow its owner to pursue an interest and make it into a small business. This will provide her with the same economic benefits as other students who have less interesting jobs.
EcoAquatics can manage saltwater aquariums on behalf of its clients. We can help you with every step, from setting up your aquarium, cleaning it, maintaining it, feeding the fish, and even feeding them. Depending upon the client, we can take them step-by step or let them enjoy the finished product.
We can help with any need, whether you are a beginner or an expert who doesn’t have the time or desire to manage everything. We will tell the truth to our clients and will not allow them to get something that is not suitable for their tank.
In the early stages of the business, the owner will focus on offering services to family and friends. The company will soon expand to serve small businesses in Eugene. Since this is a small hobbyist business, the start-up expenses are minimal. The family friend will provide an interest-free loan that will finance the start-up. The loan will be repaid within three years.
EcoAquatics was properly registered with Oregon at the time this business plan was written. It has been managing the aquarium of its client for the past four months.
EcoAquatics is a hobbyist business intended to give its owner a way to develop environmentally-sound aquariums, sensitive to the potential ecological dangers of the aquarium hobby worldwide, on a small scale appropriate to a high school student’s infrastructure and reach. It should be rewarding, enjoyable, full of learning, useful for clients, and profitable for the owner.
1.2 Keys To Success
- You should keep the business running as a hobby.
- Keep abreast of the environmental impacts of aquariums in your home or office.
- The short-term goal is to expand my aquarium hobby and build and maintain a few aquariums outside of my home. I will be working with select clients close by who will support me in a friendly manner. I don’t want to pretend this a full-time business with completely normal business motivations.
- In the long-term, this business will be able to help me through college and high school, as well as generate a part time income from a part of my vocation.
