Early in the process, it's worth your time to learn how to write the market analysis section of a business plan.

Find Good Remote Business Advice
If you are interested in starting a commercial and industrial vacuum cleaner dealership, the next step is to learn from folks who are already in business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a commercial and industrial vacuum cleaner dealership in a location that is not competitive to you will be much more likely to talk with you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry 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.
