How to Buy a Business

Would you buy a small architectural firm if you weren't an architect? What about a small engineering firm if you're not an engineer? There's always an added risk if you can't personally perform the business's main revenue function.

If I bought a pharmacy it would be difficult for me to tell if my pharmacists were doing their work correctly and efficiently. Nor could I step in and substitute for them if they all caught the flu and didn't show up for work one morning.

You're always best off owning a business where you could run the whole thing by yourself in an emergency.
