Most of my students of leveraged buyouts have somewhere between zero and $500,000 to invest in a small buyout of an existing company. Let's assume they had $500k and I asked them how much they want to invest in a business. 95% of them would say zero(the others would say "as little as possible"). Let's get real. How much you have to invest is a moving target and can depend on a lot of factors that you can can control during the deal process. What can be done with that investment is also a moving target and will depend on how hard you uncover the right opportunities and eliminate the obstacles. As to the $100k, it's nice to know but if I were you I wouldn't even go there unless you want to be screened out before you even get started.

Hello Calvin,

I work for a manufacturer of aromatherapy systems for commercial and residential use. These systems gets rid of the germs, bacterias and eliminate bad odors but most importantly make the space smell incredibly good. It uses high end fragrances and essential oils to accomplish this. Any building, home, boat, airplane, train etc... that has a central air conditioning unit is a potential client.

This is a relatively new product that most people don't know about. We are looking for exclusive distributors. The revenue is recurring since the aromatherapy system needs to be replaced monthly and there is also a service fee charged to the customer for replacing/servicing their system. If interested please contact me: phone: 954 534 5318 and I will provide additional information.

The club industry is the best place to put your money, after all everyone party in good or bad economy.
Have you ever been broke and still went to a club, or to a bar to have a drink?
That's most of us on earth!
I'm not talking about owning a club, but marketing multiple clubs as a marketing firm. I created a masterpiece, an beautifully outrageous strategy, using my lessons from bar tending, being a promoter. Once, a network marketer, and then a Door to Door sales man, its a combination of all of the systems behind all of these companies that I ever worked for.
I was always observing these systems, and I was always thinking of ideas and finally boom it hit me.
This idea will only cost between $15,000 to $25,000 to turn it into a business. This would also be the first time someone open a business like this. And it would probably make history. If you're interested in being part owner of something that will go from a 15,000 investment to millions in profit and would like to hear more about it, give me a call. 929 346 8289

What dose that mean you have $100,000.00 to invest in a business?
My question to you is what are you looking for $100,000.00?
I would personally start off by exploring different type of businesses and franchises that is out there in the marketplace until you find that one that you might have some interest .
Just by saying you have a set amount of money to invest is in no way the first way to tell people that you are serious about a business.

It is comforting to know that you do have a set dollar amount that only you need to know at this stage that you might have on hand to invest .

I would suggest that before you start throwing up figures that you truly start to do research in the areas of expertise that you feel that you are knowledgeable true interest in the company or operator.

You will find there a lot of people out here that will and is out there waiting for peoples just like you that will take total Advantage of you.

Calvin, unfortunately I believe the answer lies more in what you are looking for, and what skill sets that you have. In buying an existing business typically there is a track record to follow and build on, and hopefully repeat customers to continue to support you. In starting a new business, you will have to start day 1 without a customer or a track record.

On the other hand in purchasing a franchise, you have a track record which the company has already tested and proven, which can offer you more of a plan and discipline, if these are not traits that you already possess. The down side on the new franchise route is that you are still starting day 1 without a customer.

Hopefully this helps.
