Hi Victoria,

If you are aged 16-30 and register online with Shell LiveWIRE at http://www.shell-livewire.org/cgi-bin/register.pl (this is different to registering for the Mentor System), you can access all of the information within the Be Your Own Boss section. You should then take a look at the articles on Resource Management Working with Suppliers: http://www.shell-livewire.org/beyourownboss/main.php?catid=2&subcatid=25

One of the members of our online community has recently posted about his dealings with large clothing companies - perhaps you would find it beneficial to discuss this with him? If this is something you'd be interested in, send me an e-mail and I'll tell you more about the community: lee.longstaff@pne.org
