You want to be in business.
Somewhere in the back of your mind you hear a voice saying, 'This is risky, what if it doesn't work?'
That's why millions of prudent entrepreneurs get into business each year by buying a successfully operating business rather than starting one.
But where do you start? How do you know which business is right for you? How do you know what the process is?
Business Buyer Advantage is a full day workshop that follows one example company through the entire process. Discovery, examination, offers, financing, due diligence, closing and deal structure.
This is the online version of the Full Day seminar that I've been delivering to classes since 2009. Almost 50 classes over 6 years and I've gotten superior feedback from students after each one.
This course has been recommended time and again from one student to another. It has always featured a money-back guarantee and nobody has ever asked me for a refund. This is how certain I am of the quality of this material.
