Turning Competitors Into Collaborators
If you are seriously contemplating launching an aerial photographers business, it's a wise move to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. If you think owners of nearby aerial photographers businesses will give you advice, think again. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
However, an entrepreneur who owns an aerial photographers business 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. 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.

Getting Started in Aerial Photographers Business Ownership
There are two ways would-be entrepreneurs can gain entry to aerial photographers business ownership: A startup or a business purchase.
A startup gives you the ability to create an aerial photographers business that conforms to your personal goals and leadership style. Yet startups are also more difficult to finance because their nature is inherently risky.
Armed with several years of actual financials and a current asset appraisal, it is much easier to convince lenders to take a chance on an aerial photographers business acquisition. Although buying a business doesn't guarantee success, it substantially increases your odds of obtaining financing and achieving profitability.
Recognize that your chances of being a successful business owner are substantially improved if you become a franchisee instead of doing it all on your own.
Before starting an aerial photographers business, a smart move is to check out whether franchise opportunities in your space might alleviate your startup process.
