Don't Overlook the Competition
Long before you open a pillow renovating business within your community, it's a good idea to see how many competitors you have. Try our link below to generate a list of competitors near you. Complete the form by entering your city, state and zip code to get a list of pillow renovating businesses that are close by.
Is the established competition doing a good job? It's important to understand their strengths and weaknesses and think through how you'll stake up against those established businesses.
Learn from Others Who Are Already In This Space
Once you've finished assessing the competion, it's essential that you learn as much as you can from somebody who is already 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 pillow renovating business in another town may be more than happy to give you a few tips, after they realize you reside far away from them and won't be stealing their local customers. Indeed, many experienced entrepreneurs enjoy offering advice to startup entrepreneurs. 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 Pillow Renovating Business
It's almost always preferable to buy a pillow renovating business than to pursue a pillow renovating business startup.
You'll want to conduct a comprehensive due diligence process, but here are three arguments why you should think about buying instead of a startup.
- 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. When you're shopping for a pillow renovating business, be sure to look for ones that have all of the necessary processes and systems to ensure seamless operations from your first day of ownership.
- Capital Acquisition. In general, it's easier to finance an existing business than it is to fund a startup. While a startup only exists on paper (initially), established businesses have the benefit of historical earnings statements and tangible assets.
Is Franchising the Right Option?
The chances of thriving in your new business are substantially improved if you buy a franchise in lieu of doing everything yourself.
Before starting a pillow renovating business, you would be wise to assess whether franchising might help you avoid common entrepreneurial mistakes.
