A Good Source of Advice

Once you've finished assessing the competion, it's essential that you learn from folks who are already in business. If you think owners of nearby monuments and markers wholesale and manufacturers businesses will give you advice, think again. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.

On the other hand, an individual who has a monuments and markers wholesale and manufacturers business in another town can be a great learning resource for you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. It can take a while to find an entrepreneur who is willing to talk, but it's well worth the effort.
