Re:Helpul advice PLEASE
I did a lot of reading, a lot of web searches. But I also learned a lot talking to others in the business. I'd go by other vendors with similar products in another town and, if they weren't busy, buy something and ask questions. Many were willing to answer once they realized I was not going to be competing with them. If they got busy or if they stopped being helpful, I'd thank them, tip them and wander on.
