A professional business plan writer can be a big help in creating a first-rate plan.

Talk to People Who Are Already in the Business

If you are interested in starting a pavement marking and striping equipment and supplies business, it's essential that you talk to somebody who is already in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.

However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a pavement marking and striping equipment and supplies business outside of your community may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, given that you don't compete with them in their area. 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.

If you can't find a suitable pavement marking and striping equipment and supplies business-for-sale, you'll need to start a new business. However, in today's business-for-sale marketplace, there is an abundance of pavement marking and striping equipment and supplies businesses worth considering.

Don't Forget About Franchising As an Option
