Turning Competitors Into Collaborators
If you are seriously contemplating launching a computer cleaning business, it's a smart move to talk to somebody who is already in the business. If you think owners of nearby computer cleaning businesses will give you advice, think again. What's in it for them?

In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry 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.
Where can you find an owner of a computer cleaning business in another city who you can speak with?
