Buying a Business. The big question is what area are you looking to spend the next several years of your life. Do you want to keep doing what you have been doing or make a complete change.
Drive around your town and look at several businesses, look in the yellow pages under any business you might want to try, ask friends what they think you would be good at. Then follow that lead to that kind of businesses. You should also look at how many hours a day, week or month you want to work and what hours of the day you want to work. That should narrow down the field considerably. Then do your homework. Look outside of the area you are familiar with is you want a change and consider the possibility of doing something you have never considered, like office cleaning, home caring or even knife sharpening. Contact me if you want to look at something and just want to talk. I have owned about 25 different businesses and loved everyone of them because i love being self employed. Good luck,

Not a fair question. What is "a good business"? How much do you want to earn? How much money do you have to invest in it, after you buy it? What kind of business? What is your level of experience? Do you want to buy a business or start one up?

Remember, you frequently get what you pay for. Pay a little going in, most often you get only a little coming out.
