Business Plan Basics for Chemical Toilets Businesses
Startup entrepreneurs slave over the creation of their business plans, investing countless hours in the details of their startup strategy. But have you included any material about your industry?

Turning Competitors Into Collaborators

However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a chemical toilets business in a different city may be more than happy to give you a few tips, given that you don't compete with them in their area. 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 can you find somebody who runs a chemical toilets business outside of your area who is willing to talk?
It's not that hard. Just use the handy link below and enter in a random city/state or zipcode.
