    1. start your first phase with business validation. Select a niche, pick few products (4-5), you think can work most and start marketing them under your registered brands names. You need a registered marketing company, registered brands, and agreement with manufacturer.

      Starting with just 4-5 products in a single niche will help in learning and prevent loss. When you see consistent progress in business you can expand.
