A Good Source of Advice
After you've evaluated your local competitors, it's a wise move to learn from folks who are already in business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
However, an entrepreneur who owns a sports promoters and managers business outside of your community can be a great learning resource for 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.
So, what can you do to find an owner of a sports promoters and managers business in another community?
It's easy. Here's a link you can use to find a mentor outside of your area.
Getting Started in Sports Promoters & Managers Business Ownership
There are two ways would-be entrepreneurs can gain entry to sports promoters and managers business ownership: A startup or a business purchase.
A startup gives you the ability to create a sports promoters and managers business that conforms to your personal goals and leadership style. Yet startups are also more difficult to finance because their nature is inherently risky.
Armed with several years of actual financials and a current asset appraisal, it is much easier to convince lenders to take a chance on a sports promoters and managers business acquisition. On the whole, buying a business minimizes uncertainty as well as many of the objections lenders use to disqualify startup entrepreneurs from financing.
Explore Franchising Options
If you want to increase your chances of business success, it's a good idea to look into buying a franchise rather than starting a business from scratch.
