As a rule, don't exit the business planning process until you are completely satisfied with the scope and content of your business plan.

Finding a Non-Competitive Business Mentor
Once you've finished assessing the competion, it's a smart move to learn as much as you can from 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?
Thankfully, an owner of a a stadiums and arenas business in a location that is not competitive to you will be much more likely to talk with you, given that you don't compete with them in their area. 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.
