About a year ago in the summer of 2020, I came up with the idea to open up an e-bike shop in my neighborhood. This shop would specialize in selling electric bikes to people of all ages. Specifically, I was inspired by this idea while sitting in a traffic jam, and a convoy of e-bikes just ripped past my car in their own dedicated lane, and I heard myself saying aloud, “Oh, I wish I had an e-bike.” In order to open up my store, I needed an investment of about 50K dollars, as well as a couple of suppliers of high-quality e-bikes, such as Specialized and Porsche, and a great location. Fortunately, a pizza shop had just closed a few blocks from my home on a busy street, and I was able to get a killer deal on the lease from the owners. I think that my business will be very lucrative because there are a plethora of benefits to owning an e-bike, so I’m certain that sales will continue to increase for many years to come. E-bikes are not only good for the rider’s health, but also they have a positive impact on the environment as they reduce the need for cars, thereby reducing carbon emissions and improving the overall air quality in cities. Furthermore, elderly citizens can gain independence and are able to commute to their loved ones even over long distances without the need for a vehicle or mass transit. So, it’s really no surprise that my store had a profit of 1000 dollars in the first month.
