Getting Advice from Experienced Entrepreneurs
If you want to open an auto racing business it's a smart move to learn from folks who are already in business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started an auto racing 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. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.
How would you find somebody who runs an auto racing business who is willing to talk to you but doesn't live nearby?
It's easy. Here's a link you can use to find a mentor outside of your area.
Why You Should Buy (Instead of Start) an Auto Racing Business
It's no secret that entrepreneurs have a strong impulse to build companies from the ground up.
Yet a healthier and safer strategy may be to purchase an existing auto racing business.
Existing auto racing businesses are proven operations with dependable revenue streams. When you buy, you also gain the ability to sidestep all of the trial-and-error that comes standard with any auto racing business startup.
Don't Rule Out Franchising
The probabilities on your avoiding failure in business immediately improve when you join the ranks of franchisees rather than going it alone.
Before you get too far along in your plan to open an auto racing business, you should assess whether franchising might simplify your entering the business.
