Successful Business Plans for Gang Intervention Services
As a startup small business owner, you need to have a business plan you can rely on for both external and internal purposes.
Although there are a lot of tasks screaming for your attention, cutting corners on your business plan can be a precursor to disaster. The evidence overwhelmingly supports the fact that your startup can't achieve long-term success without an accurate business plan.
From a business ownership perspective, that makes business planning your first priority - and not a task that can be assigned to the back burner.

We've provided the link below to help you generate a list of competitors in your area.

If there's too much competition, it may be wise to consider starting the business in a less competitive marketplace.
Finding a Non-Competitive Business Mentor
If you are seriously contemplating launching a gang intervention service, it's a smart move to talk to 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?
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a gang intervention service in a location that is not competitive to you 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. 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.
