need some advice for starting from the ground up

edited March 2009 in Selecting a Business
 I plan on starting a "music store" but it will deal with all aspects of music from dvd`s/cd`s/vinyl, ipods, possibly cd & dvd players, instructional videos, music memorabilia, musical instruments, laptops/pc`s for recording, jam sessions with recording of the sessions, and repair services on instruments and computers in addition to setting up the systems - i might even give guitar/bass/vocal lessons too, i figure this type of business would be perfect for me and i can do this while continuing my music career.
 I saw a similar post concerning this same topic but i am a bit more ambitious than the guy who posted it and I am a bit older (32) and perhaps wiser and am fairly business-saavy although i have not taken any courses, just learned by observation. I plan on reading through advice on the other post "i want to open a music store" i believe is the title and go from there, i have somewhat of a plan formulated right now and am waiting on some money i will get in the summer to do this, but i figure i need to get a bit of a head start before then. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks in advance.carLito3/1/2009 2:53 PM

    you mention you are business savvy and ask for general advice. can you be more specific so just not to repeat what you already know. i am assuming you have entity formation (CPA), legal covered?  inventory management/warehousing. do you have a business plan to start off?
