What do you do well? Most of these brokers have something they want to sell you, but you have to ask yourself... What makes sense for me? Don't let desperation push you to buy a business that you couldn't see yourself working at for quite some time. You are buying your next job. I would assume you could buy (with leverage) some fast food franchise (Subway etc), but it depends on whether you can personally accept making $60 - $80 thousand a year for the next 5-8 years....

Hi David,

I like Mr. Ireland's post - you should ask yourself some questions before venturing too far down this path. Interestingly enough I wrote a short post on a similar topic on my blog this morning.

What my post basically said was to ask yourself what you are willing to do to achieve your goals. Most things worth having are usually hard to get and require some sort of commitment, and maybe even a short term sacrifice.

You must have reasons that you want to own your own business. What are they? What are you hoping to accomplish through business ownership? How far are you willing to go to achieve that goal?

I presume from your post that you are interested in that highly coveted work/life balance. I think a lot of people are searching for that right now. I guess my question would be, "What are you willing to do to get it?"

I hope this helps!

I also forgot to mention that because this is a Franchised Auto Repair business, you do not need experience in this industry. The Franchise will provide full training and support.

I have a existing auto repair franchise for sale in Columbia SC. The price is right in your ball park and I might be able to assist you with financing some of the money, so you don't have to use the entire $100K. I am not sure how far Columbia is from you, but if you are interested, please contact me at

How to Buy a Business

Not much to add here other than: are you clear on what type of business you would enjoy owning? Having some sense of the answer will go a long way towards helping you find the right one.
