Find Good Remote Business Advice
If you are interested in starting a moccasins retail business, be sure to learn from folks who are already in business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
On the other hand, an individual who has a moccasins retail business outside of your community may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. Many business owners are happy to give advice to new 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.

No problem! Just use the link below and try a random city/state or zipcode. Then start dialing for advice until you are successful.
Why You Should Buy (Instead of Start) a Moccasins Retail Business
Spurred on by dreams of a future big money buyout and an undeniable entrepreneurial impulse, many would-be moccasins retail business owners are driven to pursue startup strategies.
But from a business and financial perspective, it may make more sense to leverage an existing moccasins retail business as your vehicle for world domination.
When you buy an existing company, you get a functional (and presumably profitable) company from day one. And that's not to mention the fact that a purchase let's you avoid the trial-and-error mistakes that are common in startups.
Don't Forget About Franchising As an Option
