Question on Startup business

Last Modified: 2016-02-09
Hello Experts,

I am exploring opportunity to develop a business plan as IT Consultant but I am not sure how to go about doing this. I have a website but no products yet. I want to start selecting products I can support and do consultations on. I don't have huge capital and I want to start small. Most of the vendors I checked offer reseller opportunity and I just want to know if that is a good thing and how will I benefit from type of relationship.

I was also checking Cisco as a reseller but on their website link they indicated to select a preferred distributor. I need an expert opinion.
