Finding a Non-Competitive Business Mentor
If you want to open a tanning bed equipment and supplies retailer you really ought to speak with somebody who is already in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. Why would they want to educate a future competitor?
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a tanning bed equipment and supplies retailer in a location that is not competitive to you may be willing to share their entrepreneurial wisdom with you, as long as they don't view you as a competitive threat. Indeed, many experienced entrepreneurs enjoy offering advice to startup entrepreneurs. 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.

Why Buy a Tanning Bed Equipment & Supplies Retailer?
More than a few experts advise prospective tanning bed equipment and supplies retailer startup entrepreneurs to pursue an acquisition strategy. But what's so great about a tanning bed equipment and supplies retailer acquisition?
The availability of acquisition capital should be a major factor in your decision. Investors and lenders have it and you need it. Yet many are hesitant to fund startups, preferring instead to fund business purchases.
At the risk of oversimplification, we think the idea of buying a business to get acquisition capital makes good business sense.
