Chicago bigwig vs. the PIGs and the PEGs. How to Buy a Business

I had a chat with a Chicago executive who was looking for an opportunity to buy a ‘good sized’ business with about $500K EBITDA.

He was having troubles making a deal.  It seems that every time he found a good business, someone else arrived on the scene to outbid him.

What gives?  Why do these other buyers seem to want to over-pay for these businesses?

The problem is that at this revenue level, the financial buyer (person who wants an income and job) begins to run into the strategic buyers.  In this case; the PIGS and the PEGS.

These are the Private Investment Groups and Private Equity Groups.

There is a reason they’re willing to pay more.  They’ve got plans for these businesses.  Learn what it is in this video I made.

In fact, it’s so awesome that in the years since I’ve been doing the online course and the live workshop, not a single person has taken me up on my money-back guaranteee.  (The course is a great value and yes, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee!)  You can see how my whole buyer system works in this video from a few weeks ago:
