Also Available from Amazon.com, Amazon.ca in Softcover or Kindle.


Official Description from the Cover Jacket

Invest Local is a peek into the experience of local deal-making expert David Barnett. His experience and education in business brokerage, small business financing and private finance deals gives him an insight into what's wrong with the common financial planning advice available today and how you can make higher investment returns while reducing risk and helping your local community. 

This is not a book about social enterprises or charity. This is a book which guides you on how to find and obtain superior returns in the community where you live, without paying fees to the financial industry. 

Barnett offers step-by-step guidance on how to earn returns ranging from 9% to infinity by doing car leases, secured loans, inventory financing, buying accounts receivables, financing mini and mobile homes, operating leases on machinery and more. 

High yield investing does not have to mean high-risk investing.

Franchise Warnings 


New Cover January 2016: 




Also Available from Amazon.com, Amazon.ca in Softcover or Kindle.

I spent several years as a business broker and sold many franchises. I've given advice to franchisors, helped existing franchisees sell their business and helped people buy new franchise locations. 

There is a myth in the world that buying a franchise is the easy way to business success. This is far from the truth. 

In this book I share what I've learned over the years. There are stories of real people and real experiences. The book is called Franchise Warnings because it is filled with information that you need to know before you invest your money into a franchise business.
