Getting Advice from Experienced Entrepreneurs
If you are seriously contemplating launching a corporate insurance adjusters business, be sure to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. What's in it for them?
However, an entrepreneur who owns a corporate insurance adjusters business on the other side of the country will be much more likely to talk with you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. If you are persistent, you can find a business mentor who is willing to help you out.

Three Arguments for Buying a Corporate Insurance Adjusters Business
For years, street-smart entrepreneurs have known that whenever possible, it's more advantageous to buy an existing corporate insurance adjusters business than it is to start one from scratch.
Due diligence and other business buying requirements are essential. But there are several reasons why buying a corporate insurance adjusters business may still be your best bet.
- Proven Profitability. Startups struggle to bring in revenue right out of the gate while existing businesses usually have a steady stream of income.
- Operational Efficiency. Existing businesses are established operations, with the necessary processes, people and other resources already in place.
- Capital Acquisition. Lenders, investors and other funding sources almost always prefer business purchases to startups.
