Turning Competitors Into Collaborators
As part of your due diligence on opening a clothing and accessories brokers business, it's a wise move to talk to somebody who is already in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
But, a person who owns a clothing and accessories brokers business outside of your community may be more than happy to give you a few tips, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. Indeed, many experienced entrepreneurs enjoy offering advice to startup entrepreneurs. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

Purchasing a Clothing & Accessories Brokers Business
Many experts advise against starting a clothing and accessories brokers business if you can buy an established operation. But how do you go about locating and purchasing a viable clothing and accessories brokers business?
As you would expect, there are a number of steps in buying a business. A business broker is the gateway to the buying process.
Although you could buy a clothing and accessories brokers business on your own, you'll save time and money by recruiting a reputable broker with industry experience.
Don't Rule Out Franchising
