Getting Advice from Experienced Entrepreneurs
If you are seriously contemplating launching a moldings wholesale and manufacturers business, it's a smart move to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. What's in it for them?
However, an entrepreneur who owns a moldings wholesale and manufacturers business in another town will be much more likely to talk with you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. 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.
