Turning Competitors Into Collaborators
After you've evaluated your local competitors, it's a wise move to talk to 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, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a plastic windows wholesale business in another town will be much more likely to talk with you, after they realize you reside far away from them and won't be stealing their local customers. Indeed, many experienced entrepreneurs enjoy offering advice to startup 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.
