Dear ..........., 

Sample Answer:

Dear Smith,

It is a pleasure to be in touch with you after a long. I hope you are doing well. I am so excited to hear that you are finally pursuing a dream you have had for a long - owing your own business. My best wishes will always be with you.

Your idea to start a motorbike showroom in Ghansoli is quite excellent and timely. This area does not have such showrooms and I have seen many people travelling 30 to 40 km to buy a motorcycle. They also visit the nearby town to get motorbike parts. Your business will tap into this market and I am quite positive would be a success.

I believe opening a motorcycle showroom in Ghansoli is a very good idea and you can expect good returns on investment. Thanks for asking me to join you as a partner, but I am afraid I have to decline. I have my reason for this decision, and I have taken adequate time to determine it. I will be staying in Canada for a year to manage a sales team. This is a good career opportunity, and I cannot leave it as it is a one-time offer. Moreover, all the arrangements have already been made and cancelling it would hurt my career progress.

I wish you good luck with your new venture and look forward to meeting you soon.

Warm regards,
