A business plan is the skeletal framework for your heat exchangers service and repair business's mission, goals and strategic vision.

In contemporary business culture, business plans are also litmus tests used by external interests to assess real world viability and marketability.

Talk to People Who Are Already in the Business

As part of your due diligence on opening a heat exchangers service and repair business, it's essential that you talk to somebody who is already in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?

However, an entrepreneur who owns a heat exchangers service and repair 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.
