Take a Look at the Competition

Prior to launching a fishing nets business in your town, it's worthwhile to see how strong the competition is. Try our link below to generate a list of competitors in your city. After clicking on the link, type in your city, state and zip code to get a list of fishing nets businesses near you.

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 interested in starting a fishing nets business, the next step is to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. What's in it for them?

But, a person who owns a fishing nets business in another town will be much more likely to talk with you, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. 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.

Where do you find a fishing nets business entrepreneur in a different locale who can assist you?

It's not that hard. Just use the handy link below and enter in a random city/state or zipcode.
