Finding a Non-Competitive Business Mentor
If you are seriously contemplating launching a truck refrigeration equipment retail business, it's a wise move to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. If you think owners of nearby truck refrigeration equipment retail businesses will give you advice, think again. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
On the other hand, an individual who has a truck refrigeration equipment retail business on the other side of the country will be much more likely to talk with you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. 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.
So, what can you do to find a truck refrigeration equipment retail business owner who is willing to advise you because you live in different cities?
Here's how we would do it. Try the useful link below and key in a random city/state or zipcode.
