Finding a Non-Competitive Business Mentor
Once you've finished assessing the competion, it's essential that you have a conversation with someone who is in the business. If you think owners of nearby construction centers businesses will give you advice, think again. What's in it for them?
Fortunately, somebody who runs a construction centers business in a different city may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, 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.
