Why Can’t Most People Buy the Right Business the Right Way?

dilemma2A self-defeating dilemma prevents most people from buying the right business the right way.

What distinguishes the best dealmakers from the wannabes? The best dealmakers have the right experience and the best tools. But how did they get those advantages? Trial and error is one way. Of course that tactic is a good way to a disaster. Working for a pro is a good way to learn dealmaking. But that takes time. A lot of time. And you have to find a pro who wants an apprentice. Gorging on the how-to info easily obtainable online is a two-edge sword; it is not easy to filter what works from what appears to work and too much data from divergent sources usually raises more questions than answers.

We offer a better way. It’s a system of interrelated information and help. Each module supports each other.

So, what is the dilemma that prevents most people from buying the right business the right way?

Unsatisfactory choices create the dilemma. The typical buyers of small or midsize companies are in a situation in which they must choose from unsatisfactory alternatives. And that is not the worst part of the dilemma. The worst part is most of these people don’t find out what they don’t know they don’t know until they purchase the wrong company or they buy the right company the wrong way. Which means they waste their time and money. And some of them say goodbye to their self-confidence as they tuck their tail and return to making money for someone else’s company.
