Talk to People Who Are Already in the Business

If you are interested in starting a poison control center, it's essential that you talk to somebody who is already in the business. If you think owners of nearby poison control centers will give you advice, think again. It'd be crazy for them to teach you the business.

But, a person who owns a poison control center in another town will be much more likely to talk with you, once they realize that you are not going to directly compete with them in their community. In that case, the business owner may be more than happy to discuss the industry with you. Our estimate is that you may have to contact many business owners to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

How do you go about finding an owner of a poison control center outside of your area who is willing to talk?

Easy. Find them using our link below and start calling until you are successful.
