It's only a little bit rusty… It still runs good!



What happens when a business owner doesn’t make the necessary re-investment in equipment and machinery?

What does it say to potential buyers and how should buyers look at the business when it comes down to figuring out what they’re willing to pay.

We all know that businesses need things to work, why do the cost of things sometimes not get considered in the cash flow and valuation?

Let me answer some of these questions for you in my latest video.  You may appreciate a recent investment I have just made as well.

Blank price-tag headaches. Buying a Business with no asking price.



Warren Buffet said, ‘If you want me to buy something, put a price on it.’

-or- maybe it was Colonel Sanders.

Not sure.

But what I am sure of is that the last few businesses that I’ve investigated for clients that had no asking price weren’t worth the investment in the tangible goods.

That’s right… these were businesses that should have been destined for the auction block but are somehow being promoted as your big opportunity.

Maybe some of them are?

August Adventurers are Achieving Acquisition Accolades (Alliteration Bonus!)



Hi,
How’s your summer going?  Are you still working hard to realize your dream of business ownership?
Watch as I recap the month in my Business Buyer Adventure program.
We’ve had members make offers on businesses, we’ve seen members gather hundreds of suspect names and we’ve had members in far-off lands customize some of the materials for their home markets.
Next month members will get to see my interview with Artie who used the Business Buyer Advantage course materials to successfully buy two small businesses.
We’ll also be analyzing an offer that I made on a local business here in New Brunswick.
Watch me talk about it here: https://youtu.be/mAHjBobTNUs

How much for that business with just one customer?



I have a riddle for you--

What do you call a business with 100% dependency on one customer who can end the relationship at any time and who can arbitrarily change the rules and hold you to a high standard -AND- limit your ability to seek other customers?

A FedEx route.

Climb aboard this big rig and let me tell you what I think about these businesses here: https://youtu.be/lp6OB_8yRYI



I think you can buy them, BTW.  You just have to be wise about how you manage the risk.
