Find Good Remote Business Advice
As part of your due diligence on opening a warehouse rental business, it's a wise move to learn from folks who are already in business. If you think owners of nearby warehouse rental businesses will give you advice, think again. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
But, a person who owns a warehouse rental business outside of your community may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, after they realize you reside far away from them and won't be stealing their local customers. 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.
