    trust me when I say this...but when seeking money the "lender" likes to see you have put some time, consideration and serious thought in your thought of opening your own business...

    Who, what and where are your competition? This is inmportant, also what will make your business stand out from others in the same field.

    I used to have my own powdercoating business and we opted when choosing equipment to get a 32' oven as compared to a smaller "job-shop" size...this seperated us from our competition, because we were able to do sizable jobs compared to our comptetion in the coating industry.

    The biggest thing for me as a consumer is customer service and backing you what you sell and offer.........

    remember you are a consumer too....use your own past experiences to put together a killer business plann...... GOOD LUCK to you!!
