Buy-a- Company

Steve:

On the contrary. I know lots of businesses operating with an oversupply of office equipment. They have empty desks, and are repairing their copiers. This is a low-growth environment for offices, and thus office supplies.

I'm not saying it can't be successful; I'm just saying, "be careful". And creative.

What happened to all that equipment that was in those boarded up buildings?

The office equipment business is 180-degrees out of phase from where it was in 2006. Be careful.
