Long before you open a specialty and fancy boxes business in your area, it's a good idea to see what the competition looks like. We've provided the link below to help you get a list of local competitors nearby. Just enter your city, state and zip code to get a list of specialty and fancy boxes businesses in your community.
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
If you are seriously contemplating launching a specialty and fancy boxes business, the next step is to talk to 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?
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a specialty and fancy boxes business in a different city may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, given that you don't compete with them in their area. Indeed, many experienced entrepreneurs enjoy offering advice to startup entrepreneurs. It can take a while to find an entrepreneur who is willing to talk, but it's well worth the effort.
So, what can you do to find somebody who runs a specialty and fancy boxes business who is willing to talk to you but doesn't live nearby?
Easy. Find them using our link below and start calling until you are successful.
