Learning More About the Industry
As part of your due diligence on opening a resistors business, it's a smart move to talk to somebody who is already in the business. If you think owners of nearby resistors businesses will give you advice, think again. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
However, an entrepreneur who owns a resistors 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.

Three Arguments for Buying a Resistors Business
For years, street-smart entrepreneurs have known that whenever possible, it's more advantageous to buy an existing resistors business than it is to start one from scratch.
You'll want to conduct a comprehensive due diligence process, but here are three arguments why you should think about buying instead of a startup.
- Initial Revenue. If you're careful in your research, the resistors business you buy will have a track record of profitability – a big plus since it may take months or even years for a startup to turn a profit.
- Operational Efficiency. Existing businesses are established operations, with the necessary processes, people and other resources already in place.
- Funding. Lenders, investors and other funding sources almost always prefer business purchases to startups.
