Lori, as they say, "If you love it enough, you can make it be the best for you". What business or business type could you really fall in love with. If you love going to work, it won't be work. We have women who just love keeping knives sharp for all of the eating establishments around. Not just restaurants but Hospitals, Nursing homes, Corporate lunchrooms, plus flea markets, farmers markets, etc. etc. etc. Just look at the web site and see if you want to do something different.
Thanks, but make sure you can "love it". Jon at Edgemaster Mobile Sharpening

There are many different types of business that could offer a good return on that type of investment but it is just as important, if not more so, to consider your skills and interests when looking for a business to purchase.

I am from Wilmington (UNCW grad) and I am still very connected to the small business market there. If you would like to call or email me to give me a better understanding of what you are looking for, I could probably give you some guidance and/or refer you to the right person there. Good luck!

We are in the process of making key acquisitions in key markets. We might be able to help you by a bigger company if you are qualified to run the acquisition. We are not industry specific. We only wish to get a return on our investment and have qualified people with a vested interest. Please contact me at if you are interested in discussing this future.

thank you,
