Core Characteristics of Reflexology Company Business Plans
Ask a dozen people how to write an effective business plan and you'll get a dozen different answers. But despite the diversity of approaches, there are some business plan features that are absolutely essential.
If your plan lacks required elements like an executive summary or marketing plan, it could jeopardize its potential to deliver real benefits to your startup.
To discuss the external factors that will influence your startup, consider dedicating a section of your business to a PEST (Political, Economic, Social & Technological) analysis.
Review the Competition
Prior to launching a reflexology business in your area, it's worthwhile to determine how many competitors you have. Use the link below to generate a list of competitors in your area. Complete the form by entering your city, state and zip code to get a list of reflexology businesses that are close by.
Is the local market large enough to support another reflexology business? If not, you had better be sure that you are doing things much better than the competition.
Talk to People Who Are Already in the Business
As part of your due diligence on opening a reflexology business, be sure to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. What's in it for them?
On the other hand, an individual who has a reflexology business in a location that is not competitive to you 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 that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. If you are persistent, you can find a business mentor who is willing to help you out.
Where does one find a reflexology business founder outside of your area who is willing to talk?

Many entrepreneurs elect to acquire a profitable reflexology business instead of navigating the challenges of a business startup.

However, there is still some distance that needs to be traveled before you can secure enough funding to put your name on the letterhead.
