Learning More About the Industry
If you are interested in starting a farms and ranch loans business, it's a smart move to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. Local competitors are not going to give you the time of day, mind you. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.
However, an entrepreneur who owns a farms and ranch loans business in a location that is not competitive to you will be much more likely to talk with you, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. In my experience, you may have to call ten business owners in order to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

Leveraging the Branding Benefits of a Farms & Ranch Loans Business Acquisition
Startup farms and ranch loans businesses typically suffer when it comes to brand recognition because unlike entrenched competitors, new brands lack visibility and history with their customers.
To compensate, one of the techniques entrepreneurs use is to buy a business to get an established brand. As a startup, the best you can hope for is to gradually develop brand awareness over a period of months and years.
But by buying a farms and ranch loans business that already has a strong brand identity, you can shorten the time requirements and reap brand benefits from the beginning of your ownership career.
