Successfully Buying a Business “5 Cardinal Rules”

In the past 30+ years I have assisted hundreds of folks successfully buy a small business, with over 97% of these businesses continuing to be successful 5 years after closing and zero litigation. In addition to this direct experience I’ve had the opportunity to observe countless unsuccessful and often disastrous transactions, whether through ex-partner brokers or prospective clients contacting me for assistance to try and clean up the mess.

I have learned and share with every buyer the 5 essential things to keep in mind when buying a business, which I have learned will greatly increase the likelihood of a successful profitable win-win transaction and minimize the risk and hassles associated with a deal gone bad.

I own a franchise business with New Finish Technology. They have a great system and business strategy to build an amazing. They market themselves as selling licenses to people or businesses. You get tools, on location training ( essentially they offer "tips" which is amazing training), supplies, and continued follow up for the long term success. They are a leading car dealership vendor services company, specializing in paint, plastic and headlight repairs. They have created a system that is VERY easy to learn and therefore hire and train others. The monthly revenue per person using their system is 8-12 thousand. So it really just matters where and how big an area you want.

Good luck to you in your next venture!
