Creating a Business Plan for an Electric Shavers Sales & Repair Business

Before you make another business decision and before you start writing a business plan, you need to create a mission statement. With a carefully crafted mission statement in place, it's time to initiate the hard work involved with writing the rest of your electric shavers sales and repair company's business plan.

Finding a Non-Competitive Business Mentor
As part of your due diligence on opening an electric shavers sales and repair business, it's a wise move to learn from folks who are already in business. If you think owners of nearby electric shavers sales and repair businesses will give you advice, think again. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
However, an entrepreneur who owns an electric shavers sales and repair business in a location that is not competitive to you may be more than happy to give you a few tips, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry 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.
