Many new greenhouses wholesale and manufacturers business owners feel unprepared for the challenge of writing a business plan.

Prior to launching a greenhouses wholesale and manufacturers business in your area, it's a good idea to see how many competitors you have.

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
After you've evaluated your local competitors, be sure to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. If you think owners of nearby greenhouses wholesale and manufacturers businesses will give you advice, think again. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
However, an entrepreneur who owns a greenhouses wholesale and manufacturers business outside of your community can be a great learning resource for you, after they realize you reside far away from them and won't be stealing their local customers. 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.
Where would you find a greenhouses wholesale and manufacturers business founder 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.
