A Good Source of Advice
Once you've finished assessing the competion, the next step is to learn from folks who are already in business. If you think owners of nearby planetariums businesses will give you advice, think again. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
Thankfully, an owner of a a planetariums business in a location that is not competitive to you may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with 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. 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.
