Attorney Selection When Buying/Selling Your Local Business

As a business broker, I answer a lot of questions about how to sell a business. One of the FAQs that I share with all business owners planning to sell their company is about the total cost to sell a business. People don’t think about all the costs involved in selling a business.  The first question people always think is “How much can I get?” but the truth is It’s not how much you make, it’s how much you keep...

Top 5 Things To Do When Preparing Your Business for Sale & New Ownership

It’s a secret, but seasoned business owners know it: “True entrepreneurs don’t build jobs for themselves, they build jobs for other people.” This notion is echoed in Michael Gerber’s “E-Myth Revisited,” John Warrillow’s “Built to Sell,” and countless other business books advising entrepreneurs on success. As a professional full-time business broker, I'm a little biased, but the sale of the business is the ultimate transfer from business worker to a business owner, and from former business owner to business...
