A business plan isn't just another startup formality. It's a core business document that will guide your pediatrics surgery practice's decisions and activities on a go-forward basis.

A Good Source of Advice
As part of your due diligence on opening a pediatrics surgery practice, the next step is to have a conversation with someone who is in the business. If you think owners of nearby pediatrics surgery practices will give you advice, think again. The last thing they want to do is help you to be a better competitor.
However, a fellow entrepreneur who has started a pediatrics surgery practice on the other side of the country can be a great learning resource for you, given that you don't compete with them in their area. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice 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.

An acquisition isn't necessarily a bed of roses. You'll need to thoroughly evaluate the factors involved with buying a business. First and foremost, it's important to make sure the business is the right fit for your personal and professional goals.
If the business is right for you, the assistance of a business broker will help all of the rest of the pieces of the process fall in place and you will be well on your way to owning a proven pediatrics surgery practice.
