A Good Source of Advice
As part of your due diligence on opening a plastic compression molding business, be sure to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?

Many business owners are happy to give advice to new 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.
So, what can you do to find an entrepreneur who is running a plastic compression molding business on the other side of the country to talk to?
It's easy. Here's a link you can use to find a mentor outside of your area.
