Studying the Market
Once you've finished assessing the competion, it's a smart move to talk to somebody who is already in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?
On the other hand, an individual who has a paving equipment manufacturers business in a location that is not competitive to you may be more than happy to give you a few tips, 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. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.
