Turning Competitors Into Collaborators
If you are seriously contemplating launching an auto consultants and information business, it's essential that you talk to somebody who is already in the business. If you think owners of nearby auto consultants and information businesses will give you advice, think again. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
But, a person who owns an auto consultants and information business in a location that is not competitive to you will be much more likely to talk with you, given that you don't compete with them in their area. 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.
