Learning More About the Industry
If you want to open an air motor dealership be sure to learn from folks who are already in business. If you think owners of nearby air motor dealerships will give you advice, think again. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started an air motor dealership outside of your community may be more than happy to give you a few tips, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. Indeed, many experienced entrepreneurs enjoy offering advice to startup entrepreneurs. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

Gaining Access to Air Motor Dealership Ownership
Some entrepreneurs buy existing air motor dealerships, while others plunge headfirst into an air motor dealership startup. But despite the attraction startups have for many entrepreneurs, you should also consider the benefits of buying an air motor dealership.
If you're on the fence consider this: There has never been a better time to acquire an air motor dealership. The down economy has resulted in a glut of available businesses, many of which can be acquired for bargain prices.
Don't Rule Out Franchising
