Studying the Market

On the other hand, an individual who has a glass coating and tinting commercial 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 fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice 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.
