I am a small business owner and am looking to sell my business. In the last few years I have grown it to gross almost $150,000 and net over $50,000 a year. I also have trained a manager that handles 95% of the work. It has allowed me to work on a few other projects. Please contact me at if you are interested. I am willing to negotiate on price.

It may be difficult to find the right partner. Many people will see this as simply a way to get in on a good deal... (probably including myself). A lot of people will tell you what they want to invest in, and are simply looking for the money to invest.
I would recommend putting together a list of people who interest you, as well as different kinds of businesses to invest in. 10 years ago I would have told you to buy a car dealership... but today, it is much more difficult to make a decent profit in the car business. I have run dealerships, and I have run companies, most recently as the COO of a successful internet marketing company with offices in the U.S. and the Philippines. I have been thinking of making a move, so if you wish to discuss this further you can email me at or call me at 435-237-1203.
Good luck

Are you living in the US at this time? There are some requirements that you might need to meet in order to immigrate to the US. With an E2 VISA you will be granted the right to live here for a number of years and then renew the VISA if needed or apply for citizenship. There are qualifications that must be met, investing at least $100K in a business and employing people is the way to obtain this VISA. There are other types too, the Permanent Resident or Greencard Visa (EB5) allows groups of investors to combine with a minimum of $500K in distressed areas, or typically $1 million. Franchises are good options for foreigners, as they provide a turnkey business model and ongoing support and training. Let me know if I can be of assistance to you as you consider your options.

A foreign partner would be extremely beneficial to what we are doing (which will become clear if you read our prospectus and business plan). Our company is looking for a private investment of $150,000 which will be worth $1,500,000 when we have completed our IPO. We have a New York securities attorney lined up to do our deal, and a unique selling strategy to move our stock even in the current economic climate. Our company has a new web-based learning platform that we have been beta-testing with schools the past 2+ school years. Actually, the schools have been paying us to use the service, but we want to roll out nationwide. If we are able to get 10 schools with 10 students in all 50 states, our revenues would be $500,000 per year, and the revenue is recurring on a yearly subscription basis. From those calculations, you can see that our upside potential is tremendous. Please feel free to contact me for more information: nativespeaker (a) earth link (dot) net . Thanks.
