Getting Advice from Experienced Entrepreneurs
After you've evaluated your local competitors, it's a smart move to speak with 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 gas well services business in a different city will be much more likely to talk with you, after they realize you reside far away from them and won't be stealing their local customers. 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.

Three Arguments for Buying a Gas Well Services Business
It's almost always preferable to buy a gas well services business than to pursue a gas well services business startup.
Due diligence and other business buying requirements are essential. But there are several reasons why buying a gas well services business may still be your best bet.
- Initial Revenue. Startups struggle to bring in revenue right out of the gate while existing businesses usually have a steady stream of income.
- Operational Efficiency. A good gas well services business should already function like a well-oiled machine.
- Capital Acquisition. Lenders, investors and other funding sources almost always prefer business purchases to startups.
Don't Forget About Franchising As an Option
