    This is the very question I am faced with right now - wade or dive.  Having spent over 20 years in the industrial b2b chemical & wholesale supply business in Detroit, I am now entering a completely different national market with b2b and a direct retail approach (no, I`m not trying to play both sides of the fence - different segments).  I believe in the market, my product, the demographics, the approach and that dynamic growth is probable, not just possible.  It`s just that I am tethered to my experience of cost control and helping my sales force claw for every industrial sale.   I am reluctant to believe that, no matter how different, this business could very well be the same.  Can anyone offer some "self help questions" on this?
