Finding a Non-Competitive Business Mentor

Fortunately, somebody who runs a paint removal and stripping business outside of your community can be a great learning resource for you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. 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.

At Gaebler, we think it makes a lot of sense to explore a paint removal and stripping business purchase before committing to a startup.

You'll want to conduct a comprehensive due diligence process, but here are three arguments why you should think about buying instead of a startup.

  • Funding. Lenders, investors and other funding sources almost always prefer business purchases to startups.
