After practicing veterinary medicine for over 13 years at a local animal clinic in Terre Haute, Dr. Beth Brown decided it was time for her to open her own veterinary clinic and animal hospital. She contacted the West Central ISBDC for help in developing detailed business and marketing plans, obtained financing on the strength of her completed plans, purchased and extensively renovated a facility in a prime area of the city, and contacted her previous clients to let them know she would be opening soon. In mid July 2011, Brown Veterinary Hospital officially opened. Six weeks later, sales for the month of August were at the July 2012 level contained in her plan – 11 months ahead of schedule! According to Dr. Brown, “The ISBDC was a tremendous help in guiding me through the process and challenges of successfully opening my own business.”
