I have been planning to start up a business next year. I intend to mostly leave my current line of work in an area where the market is swamped. My home town, Greater Tulsa, has a population of approximately 375,000 - 400,000. Including a full page ad and some smaller ads and all the individual listings, our yellow pages for lawn and landscaping takes up a total of 4 1/2 pages. I would sure hate to buy a bunch of expensive equipment only to find out that I can't get more than ten accounts, because too many people are in on the action bidding too low (like my current profession). How do you figure out in advance whether your area can support more lawn/landscaping folk? Any ideas?
