You can’t buy a good business until you find one; many of them are never advertised or listed for sale.
There are two categories of business buyers. Individuals looking to escape the corporate world and take control of their life by buying a mature, profitable, and fairly priced business and owners wanting to jump-start growth via acquisition. We offer complete services to both and have written the definitive guides, Buying A Business That Makes You Rich and Company Growth By Acquisition Makes Dollars & Sense.
Call or email us to discuss the benefits of how we can help you locate, analyze, and structure a good deal on a great business.
The Wall Street Journal said only 10% of businesses are prepared to sell for maximum value. You can do better.
Those not prepared will “Likely sell at a discount” (Kiplinger). Get our book If They Can Sell Pet Rocks Why Can’t You Sell Your Business (For What You Want)? and call us to discuss how you can maximize your business’ value so you can exit with style, grace, and more money.™ Our sister company, Nokomis Advisory Services, also offers complete sell-side representation services.
There’s a demographic change driving the market (a lot of owners getting older) and you want to be ahead of the curve. Not having an exit strategy means you have no strategy. Working hard for an income is great. Working hard for an income, legacy and a large upside is even better.
