Turning Competitors Into Collaborators
As part of your due diligence on opening a blasting contractors business, it's essential that you speak with 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?
On the other hand, an individual who has a blasting contractors business in a location that is not competitive to you will be much more likely to talk with you, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. 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.
