Let me help you out: 1. Find the Coworking Google Group and read a years worth of entries. All the basic questions have been asked and answered here. I’m not kidding a year. 2. Write a business plan, it’s not overrated it’s essential for pointing out what you don’t’ know. If the numbers don’t work. Don’t open. 3. Get a mentor.

Maybe you have followed blue ocean strategy and discovered a new market to exploit, one that has no competition. Nice work! It's as if you're printing money. But over time, others see that you have a good thing, and they start competing in the same space. Competition means that your margins become thinner and you have to work harder for each customer. More than that, others are innovating too, because your "new" business model…
