Learning More About the Industry
After you've evaluated your local competitors, it's essential that you have a conversation with someone who is in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. What's in it for them?
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a polishes business outside of your community 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. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.
