Business Excellence Series: Buying & Selling a Business

Buying or selling a business is always complicated. If you’re planning to buy a business, there are many things to consider. Should you choose a franchise, or is an independent business more your style? How do you know if the asking price is reasonable and how do you research the business’s history, including its financial performance? What’s the potential for success in that field and what risks are involved?

If you are selling a business, there may be less variables. But you still need to know how to find the right buyer and obtain the best price. In BES: Buying & Selling a Business, we’ll explore the mechanics and strategies of buying and selling a business from doing your research to find the right business or buyer, to negotiating a sales agreement and then closing the deal.
