When the Art of the Deal Becomes the Art of the Steal

There are thousands of books and articles about buying or selling small or midsize companies.

You are invited to share with me your war stories and advice on this topic. You can explain an incident; you can submit a white paper or article. You can even provide an online link to pertinent litigation. You will be attributed as the source unless you want to remain anonymous.

People who share their ideas with us will be referenced in our written report, which will supplement our upcoming MoneyMinutes Podcast.
