You need to learn how to do this! For most, buying a business will be the most complex thing they will ever do. You need to know what to look for and how to save your most valuable resource; time.
First, learn about buying businesses and learn more about my depth of knowledge by watching my YouTube playlist. It’s got dozens of videos that I’ve recorded over the years. Most have been in answer to viewer questions from people just like you.
Second, read my book; Franchise Warnings. It was an Amazon best-seller in 2015. Whether you want to buy a franchise or not, this book will give you a primer on business valuation and business systems.
Fourth, enroll in my workshop. Business Buyer Advantage is available as an online course that you can study on your own or you can come to one of my live seminars. It’s a full-day event that I’ve been doing since 2009. Over the course of the program, we follow a case study company through all the steps of the purchase process. We find the company, analyze it, negotiate for it, finance it, write up the offer for it, and manage the transition process. Ever since I started offering this program it has always come with a 30 day money-back guarantee that not one person has ever asked for!
Once you’ve got your education completed and you know what you’re doing, the next step is to get ready to meet sellers and be ready to act.
The Next Step is my 12 module buyer preparation program. You work through the modules on your own and complete the exercises. From personal skills analyses to financial worksheets, we identify the industries for you, the scale of business you should be after and determine the limits you’re willing to go to in a purchase. All of this makes sure that you can quickly dismiss the bad deals and act clearly and quickly on the ones that are right for you.
At the end of the 12 modules you send your work to me and we review in a one-on-one coaching session to make sure you’re ready for what comes next.
Do you have trouble keeping focused on your goals? Would you like access to a knowledgeable resource to help you navigate through your deals? I help people with this in two ways:
Option A: One-on-one coaching programs designed to get you out into the secret market for the hidden gems. I show you how to find the businesses that never get listed with business brokers. I help my clients by holding them accountable to their goals and the actions they’ve committed to take. I provide advice along the way.
Option B: For those seeking a more economical solution I have my Buyers Club. Buyers Club is an online mastermind group which meets twice a month. The members help to hold each other accountable and when deals come up all the members of the group benefit from watching me analyze the deals.
