Learning More About the Industry
If you want to open an evangelists business it's a smart move to speak with somebody who is already in the business. If you think owners of nearby evangelists businesses will give you advice, think again. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
But, a person who owns an evangelists business on the other side of the country can be a great learning resource for you, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice 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.

Benefits & Drawbacks of an Evangelists Business Acquisition
An acquisition can be a great way to enter evangelists business ownership. But it's important to evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of buying a business before you decide on either an acquisition or startup approach.
PROs: A good evangelists business will deliver revenue and ROI from day one. Even more, the right evangelists business acquisition can place you in a market leadership position from your first days as a business owner.
CONs: On the downside, evangelists business acquisitions can be difficult to adapt to your unique business philosophy so it's important to make sure the business is capable of achieving your ownership goals before you initiate the buying process.
