Learning More About the Industry

Fortunately, somebody who runs an internal medicine veterinarians business in a different city 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. 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.
