It's important to be aware of what the competition is doing. Take the time to visit the competition to properly assess their strengths and weaknesses.
A Good Source of Advice
After you've evaluated your local competitors, it's a smart move to talk to somebody who is already in the business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
But, a person who owns a birds and supplies business in another town 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. 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 birds and supplies business entrepreneur outside of your area who is willing to talk?
Here's one way to do it. Just use our link below, find somebody and call them.

Buying a business to get acquisition capital is a legitimate ownership strategy for birds and supplies business entrepreneurs.
