Model Answer:

I am planning to start a business and cosmetics and perfumes would be the man products that I will sell. Initially, it would be a small store and I hope someday it will grow enough and will compete with the other existing business of the similar category. In fact, this is a very popular business in the country, Vietnam and a wide number of people are getting involved in the small businesses. So, I have picked it for me. This is a great cue card topic for me and here goes the rest of the answer.

I have completed my graduation and now planning to grow my career. But my father told me to try something different. He suggested me to start some sort of business. After his suggestions and direct support, I started seeking the right type o0f business for me. I also researched about the matter on the internet. Finally, I came to the decision that the business of selling cosmetics and perfume would be the best for me.   

There are some certain preparations needed to start the business. First of all, I would need sufficient amount of money to get the products. Then I would need a business location or office for selling the products. Actually, this is the hardest part of the plan to manage an office in a prime location. However, I also would need investing on advertisement purposes to let the others know about my products and services.

Of course, I will start it personally. My father has arranged for a small shop in the centre of the city, Hanoi. Moreover, I have also contacted with the suppliers of various types of cosmetics and perfumes. They are ready to supply me both in cash and credit. All the preparations are done and I am going to start it shortly. I personally will manage everything.
