Studying the Market
If you are interested in starting a pressure and temperature switches business, be sure to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. What's in it for them?

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.
