Getting Advice from Experienced Entrepreneurs
If you are seriously contemplating launching a pharmacology practice, it's a smart move to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. If you think your local competitors will give you advice, you're being overoptimistic. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
But, a person who owns a pharmacology practice on the other side of the country may be more than happy to give you a few tips, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. 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.

Branding Advantages of Buying a Pharmacology Practices
Branding a new business takes time, resources and a lot of hard work. Given the choice, most new pharmacology practice owners would prefer to buy an existing brand rather than invest the time and energy it takes to build a new brand.
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 pharmacology practice that already has a strong brand identity, you can shorten the time requirements and reap brand benefits from the beginning of your ownership career.
