Assess the Competition
Before you open a frog farms business in your area, it's essential to find out how strong the competition is. We've provided the link below to help you generate a list of competitors near you. Simply enter your city, state and zip code to get a list of frog farms businesses in your town.
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
As part of your due diligence on opening a frog farms business, be sure to talk to somebody who is already in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
But, a person who owns a frog farms business in a different city may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, 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.

Here's one way to do it. Just use our link below, find somebody and call them.
