Step 4/5: I am ready to buy a business. How Do I Find The Right Business To Buy?
In Steps 2 & 3, we looked at what you could afford to buy, and the kinds of businesses that would make a good match for your skills, abilities and past professional experiences.
Now, let’s refer to the Step 3 Questionnaire “Matching Your Skills & Experience With Available Businesses.” What did you learn? What industries do you have past experience with? What industries are of interest to you, and you believe you could succeed in based upon your transferable skills? Did an honest evaluation and reflection uncover areas of opportunity to focus on in your search for suitable businesses in your price range?
If you’re like potential buyers, you found at least several areas of opportunity. And that’s exactly why we are going through this process.
