I want a Mom and Pop business, not retail related, to take to the next level.

I have a lot of "operational" exp and have a unique ability to take what others have build and make it better. I don't want a retail store or franchaise. Mom and Pop that are ready to slow down, but are willing to show the young buck how they did it.

Hello Steven, if you haven't found what you are looking for, might I suggest a company who's owner has not been able to put attention towards it for the last couple years. It is still doing sales on it's own with the copyrighted website. It's a PATENTED product that comes with $200K (retail value) inventory of a small, easy to store product. Amazon has just contacted them to distribute this kit, but, the owner has a full time career that has taken off and rather than let the business completely die, is willing to take a very low price for a quick sale. It's been around for 5 years and has the patent, press releases, customer lists and other assets that go along with it. It is easily relocatable and can be done on a part-time basis. Owner wants only $50K, cash price for this established, ongoing business with all of the above. Just looking for the right person to take it to the next level. Is this you? Please contact me at if you would like more information.

With your operational experience you should be able to target several existing businesses to take to the next level. It's a good idea to start searching online in order to understand what's available and what type of business interests you. Then the next step is to either inquire with the broker or call a broker to discuss your search criteria. I'd be more than happy to discuss your criteria over a confidential consultation and can be reached at 617-945-5338.

Small Business Underwriters

Hi Steven - Is there a particular skill set that you have that would suit a particular business type? Once you find the business, I specialize in in-depth business analysis. I look at it from the perspective of a commercial loan underwriter, and can assist with negotiating price, structure, and make sure all risks are explored.
