Congratulations on your plan to buy a business!

Did you know that small business ownership is one of the most financially rewarding careers you can pursue? The vast majority of self-made millionaires have earned their money through the ownership and operation of their own business. You, can too!

But why buy an existing business instead of starting a new one? For many very good reasons. Here’s a few to consider:

  • An existing business has a proven track record that you can continue and build on. No wondering if the business can be successful…it has already proven itself!
  • You will have positive cash flow on your first day of operation…no wondering how to get buying customers to your business. You can skip the many years it usually takes to get your business name known through expensive advertising and trial-and-error marketing.
  • You will get a tried and true set of suppliers, a proven business location, a respected business name, a highly developed business strategy and successful method of doing business.
  • And, you will get the most expert advice in how to initially run the business profitably and successfully continue its operations…from the seller who usually has a vested interest in seeing you succeed…because the seller usually finances a significant part of the business purchase price.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t all just automatically happen! You need to equip yourself with the knowledge it takes to make yourself an informed buyer. You need to know how to:

  • Find a good business for sale that best suits your capabilities and desires.
  • Learn how the purchase and sale process works so you know what is going on and why.
  • Determine an independent fair-market valuation that will allow you to buy a good business at a fair price that will allow the business to pay you a market salary, generate enough cash flow to pay all expenses, AND pay for itself within 3-5 years.
  • How to negotiate a deal that is good for both the buyer and seller because… a deal that is not good for one or the other will most likely collapse before a transaction ever takes place.
  • Accomplish a due diligence process where you examine all of the key details to fully understand how the business actually works and what its actual and potential problems are.
  • Find the financing necessary to buy the business, have the capital necessary to operate the business, and identify the funds necessary for the potential expansion and improvement of the business.

To help you to successfully buy a business, we’ve assembled a special package of information that’s easy to use, covers all of the above points (and more) and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. This Business Purchase and Sale Kit has all of the critical information you need AND the easiest to use business valuation software program (BizPricer) you can find.

This Business Purchase and Sale Kit includes:

Our most popular book, Strategies for Successfully Buying or Selling a Business, which includes the very popular checklists for accomplishing due diligence. This 224 page book provides all of the basic practical information that small business buyers and sellers need to efficiently find each other, negotiate, and successfully close the deal. Buying or selling a business can be one of the three or four most important decisions of a lifetime. Yet, many people rush into this decision ill prepared and lacking crucial facts. This book provides the information that minimizes financial risk and reveals how the reader can get the upper hand when negotiating the purchase or sale of any business . . . Information that can literally spell the difference between success and failure. Learn more about this book...

Our best-selling BizPricer™ Business Valuation Software which includes both BizPricerW™ (Wizard version) and BizPricerE™ (MS Excel version).

BizPricer™ includes easy to understand instructions that walk you through the valuation process without getting involved with complicated academic theory.

No financial expertise or specialized knowledge is needed. Learn more about this software...

Our classic book, Preparing a Business for Sale (For the Most Money!) is a book that shows business owners how to prepare their business to sell for the most money and potential buyers exactly where the business value is coming from. This book addresses a looming baby-boomer issue: how to sell or transfer the business they worked so hard to create as retirement age approaches. It presents 60 strategic moves and hundreds of tips and ideas that a business owner should implement or risk losing significant value at the time of sale. This 300-page book has been described by readers as "a much needed contribution to the subject of business transfers," "a superb resource for business owners and buyers" and "an extremely valuable book that covers virtually everything a business owner needs to know to properly prepare a business for a successful sale."

A unique guide titled Anatomy of a Business Purchase Offer. This book provides you with all of the practical hands-on knowledge you need to make a successful purchase offer for a small business. The author uses an actual Purchase Offer form to show you exactly what needs to be written and why! He details all of his recommendations in a line-by-line format for each and every aspect of the purchase. All of this book's 132 pages are loaded with specific useful information you must know to help you to buy an existing business. The book includes an interactive Business Offer form which you can actually use in making a business purchase offer. There is no other publication of this kind available anywhere! Learn more about this book...

We even include with this Kit on-screen fill-in-the-blanks Business Purchase and Sale Forms! Whether you're a business broker, consultant, or business seller or buyer "doing it yourself", you can use these forms with your accountant, attorney, and broker to potentially save thousands of dollars in professional fees and speed up the transaction process significantly! The more work you do yourself with these forms, and the less work the expensive professionals do for you, could save you a great deal of money. These forms are interactive and customizable (you just fill-in-the-blanks) and/or you can add headings and add or delete text. You can even insert your own business logo if you wish. Learn more about these forms...
