Look Over Competitors

How tough is the competition in the market you are considering? If the competition is too tough, you may need to think about starting the business in a different area or even start a completely different business instead.
Studying the Market
As part of your due diligence on opening a capacitors business, it's essential that you have a conversation with someone who is in the business. If you think owners of nearby capacitors businesses will give you advice, think again. What's in it for them?
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a capacitors business in a location that is not competitive to you will be much more likely to talk with you, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. Indeed, many experienced entrepreneurs enjoy offering advice to startup entrepreneurs. 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.
Where do you find a capacitors business entrepreneur who is willing to talk to you but doesn't live nearby?
It's easy. Here's a link you can use to find a mentor outside of your area.

However, a business purchase is nearly always the smarter ownership option.

Consider Buying a Franchise
