Investigate Competitors

Prior to launching a materials handling equipment and supplies wholesale and manufacturers business within your community, it's a good idea to find out how you will fit in the competitive landscape.

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

Once you've finished assessing the competion, it's a wise move to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?

On the other hand, an individual who has a materials handling equipment and supplies wholesale and manufacturers business on the other side of the country will be much more likely to talk with you, given that you don't compete with them in their area. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry 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.

Where can an aspiring entrepreneur like you find a materials handling equipment and supplies wholesale and manufacturers business entrepreneur who is willing to advise you because you live in different cities?

No problem! Just use the link below and try a random city/state or zipcode. Then start dialing for advice until you are successful.

In a competitive market, the right acquisition can be leveraged to catapult your business into a market leadership position, even if you personally lack industry credentials.

Don't Forget About Franchising As an Option
