Getting Advice from Experienced Entrepreneurs
If you are seriously contemplating launching a mirrors wholesale and manufacturers business, it's a smart move to learn from folks who are already in business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. What's in it for them?
But, a person who owns a mirrors wholesale and manufacturers business in a location that is not competitive to you will be much more likely to talk with you, given that you don't compete with them in their area. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. In my experience, you may have to call ten business owners in order to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.
So, what can you do to find a mirrors wholesale and manufacturers business owner who is willing to talk to you but doesn't live nearby?
We can help. Follow the link below, try a few city/state combos or zipcodes, and then start calling!
Why You Should Buy (Instead of Start) a Mirrors Wholesale & Manufacturers Business
It's no secret that entrepreneurs have a strong impulse to build companies from the ground up.
However, a business purchase is nearly always the smarter ownership option.
Existing mirrors wholesale and manufacturers businesses are proven operations with dependable revenue streams. And that's not to mention the fact that a purchase let's you avoid the trial-and-error mistakes that are common in startups.
Franchising May Be a Better Way to Go
