Getting Advice from Experienced Entrepreneurs
Once you've finished assessing the competion, it's a wise move to learn from folks who are already in business. If you think owners of nearby printing rollers businesses will give you advice, think again. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a printing rollers business in another town may be more than happy to give you a few tips, given that you don't compete with them in their area. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.
