This means, compared to other entrepreneurs, you will have a more challenging job because in order to be successful. The service you are planning on providing is has already been proven to work and you will need to take an open aproach when planning what your nursery will be like. You will have to offer a top class service from day one. This means that any mistakes you make in the opening months as that could close be costly and in the worst case, close the business. You will need to spend many months gathering market research in order to have the most successful start.

Quantitative is much more specific than Qualitative but often is not necessary and takes up more time.
Here are examples of them both when looking at surveys:
