Creating a Business Plan for a Sanitary Landfills Business
A common mistake for a small business owner is to launch your company without having written business plan for your startup sanitary landfills business.
The key benefit of writing a business plan is that it defines the game plan. The absence of an effective business plan inevitably results in impulsive leadership, choosing short-term opportunities at the expense of long-term benefits.
Start by defining your business mission. The process of writing a mission statement doesn't have to be complicated. Once you're satisfied with your sanitary landfills business's mission, the other piece of the business plan puzzle will begin to fall in place.
Evaluate the Competition
Before you open a sanitary landfills business in your area, it's essential to see how you will fit in the competitive landscape. Use the link below to get a list of local competitors in your area. Just enter your city, state and zip code to get a list of sanitary landfills businesses in your community.
If there's too much competition, it may be wise to consider starting the business in a less competitive marketplace.
Finding a Non-Competitive Business Mentor
If you are seriously contemplating launching a sanitary landfills 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. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?
However, an entrepreneur who owns a sanitary landfills business outside of your community may be more than happy to give you a few tips, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. 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.
How does one quickly and easily locate a sanitary landfills business founder outside of your area who is willing to talk?
