Looking for a Mentor to start Power Wash business

Hello,

I am currently exploring the opportunity of starting up a power wash business in about 2 years after my current contract in the Army is up. I want to use the next 2 years to learn and gain as much knowledge as I can in this field. I am looking for an experienced business owner who will be willing to mentor me while I take on this next chapter of my life. The location of the business will be in Kentucky just on the other side of the Ohio River from Cincinnati,OH. Thank you for your time!!

Take some small business classes. Learn marketing and advertising. The actual work will be the easy part.

I have been doing that actually for the last six years or so. I have an Associate in Business Management and only 5 class away from having my Bachelor in Business. However, I believe learning from those in the field from successful business owners will provide me greater knowledge oppose to what a textbook and a 10 page report will do. I have the basics down. Thanks for your reply.
