For our Discussion

The first thing I tried to determine is what type of business would be classified as - so I looked through the NAICS codes:  

Knowing the proper NAICS code helps inform me of finding industry and financial reports about this type of business - so next, I look for Industry Data in both IBIS World & Mergent:


From here you want to read each of the reports and dig deeper into your research- try to piece together your SPENT talking points. So, for example, from our Mergent First Research Report, I learned that seasonal demand can have a big impact on Masonry Contractors business - maybe I'd want to take a closer look at that.  Now, I'll jump into Business Source Ultimate to see if I can find more information about that.
