Default Am I stretching myself with starting an Export Company?

I am a 23 year old male from NYC who's been aiming to start an Export & Import Company based here in NY, focusing mainly on the export of Solar Energy Components (i.e. protective films, combiner boxes, etc.) from the U.S. into the Asian market. Asia being the target simply because my educational background is in International Business with an East Asian concentration. I would initially work as an Agent for the US companies and hopefully grow to being a full merchant.I targeted Solar/Photovoltaic systems because its such a budding industry. I currently secured 2 business partners based in China who are willing to work with me and the products I have to offer if they are of good quality, price, etc. I also currently have 2 companies based in the US who have no international representation, but are willing to work with me as well!My problem stems from the fact that I worry that having really only 2 types of products to offer potential partners may not show much effort on my part. However I worry that since I haven't received any real form of agreement with a list of companies who manufacture different types of components, as well as manufacturing equipment, I would be stretching myself thin and not really guaranteeing anything. So the questions are:-Overall, am I making the right decision to focus on this market?- Should I only focus on the 2 specific products at the moment, and wait for orders to come in and my business to be more established to grow the offering catalog?-Are there any other budding Photovoltaic specialist/Export-Import People with some experience on succesffuly launching a trading company? Many thanks!
