Hello and Thank you for visiting. Hopefully our paths will cross in the near future.
I have been involved in the business selling industry for close to 40 years now. After selling my Business Brokerage in 2015 and taking a couple of years off I decided to start a business selling service in Alberta & Saskatchewan that would help business owners and business sellers increase their chances of selling a business.
Most business owners are unaware
of a dismal statistic in the business selling industry. On average the likelyhood of selling a business is a very low 20%, which means 80% of all businesses listed for sale do not sell. Yes you read that right 80%!
We were very surprised to learn that many business owners thought that selling a business was similar to selling a home.
(which is not the case)
We also learned that the majority of business owners totally underestimated the time and effort required to properly prepare a business for sale
The 4 main reasons why business owners wanted to sell their businesses
The 4 main reasons why buyers wanted to buy a businesses
I also learned that
Though there were many "buyers" there were very few who understood what was required by them before shopping for a businesss.
That business owners in most cases thought their businesses were worth much more than what the market and economy dictated.
There is a need to build a plan to sell the business.
Sellers need to be more involved in the overall selling process.
( Buyers want to deal directly with sellers)
We don't sell hamburgers, shoes, or printing materials. We help business owners and business sellers sell businesses. (We have been doing it for close to 40 years)
We do this differently than most. We have a step by step plan that simply makes cents (Sorry I couldn't resist)
Selling a business takes team work and a plan. You supply the information, we build the plan

With only 3% of the people inquiring about a business for sale being qualified or serious it is essential that your business identity remains confidential.
You will notice navigating through our businesses opportunities ads that they are generic in description. We have developed a system that provides enough initial information for interested buyers but keeps our clients identities protected
