Here is a sample of what you will learn in just one section of How to Buy a Good Business at a Great Price...


In this section we'll review all of the considerations to be made: the upsides, the downsides, and all of the personal, professional and family considerations that must be factored into your decision.

There is only one reason "why" you should buy a business: because you want something better than whatever it is that you are presently doing. Most people spend their whole life "making a living" and completely forget to make any money!

There is absolutely no better investment vehicle than owning a good business. Not stocks, not bonds, not even owning your own home. Whatever it is that you can possibly want in life from a financial and lifestyle perspective can be gained from owning your own business.
In this section, you will learn:
  • Understanding and outlining your reasons for buying.
  • Why business ownership is the quickest route to riches.
  • How to form the right attitude to buy that will immediately set your head straight for this project.
  • Why looking to "buy a job" is the wrong approach.
  • Learn to buy benefits and the future lifestyle business ownership will bring.
  • Discussion of the potential financial rewards.
  • Controlling your own destiny and the challenges to consider.
  • How to creatively attack any potential business purchase.
  • Financial considerations you must make.
  • Learn the 12 things you must do today to get your finances in order to make a purchase.
  • Why you must realize that there is no such thing as a secure job unless you own the company!
  • How your past professional career has already prepared you for the risks you may face.
  • What are the downside possibilities?
  • How to overcome all obstacles if you've never been in business before.
  • A three-step system that will overcome any lack of experience you may have.
  • Understanding the objections and situations you will face with family members and how to include, not exclude, them.
  • The attitude you need if this process is new to you.
  • Deciding if you are window-shopping or committed to buying.
  • Why 90% never buy and how their "looking" paralyzes them to make any decisions.
  • The reasons why your best chances of success are in buying an existing business.
  • The tax benefits of business ownership.
  • The pros and cons of looking for something specific and why you must keep an open mind.
  • How long will it take to buy the "perfect" business? (By the way, there's no such thing. We'll explain why.)
  • Ready! Aim, Aim, Aim! Learn why others can't make that final leap and how you will avoid their dismal fate.
  • Preparation and completion of your Personal Financial Statement (interactive worksheet).
