Many business owners and buyers who contact me are curious on how The Affordable Business Partner can help them.
I started 40 years ago “flipping businesses”. Back then this business model choice was not vogue, nor was the term “flipping” used. 30 years later and over 30 successful and sold businesses, I retired from the “flipping" business
The natural progression from the selling of my businesses was to help others sell theirs. So, in 2007, I started a Business Brokering Company in Calgary, which I operated for 8 years. It was a great way to learn the in’s and out’s of selling a business from both the owners and the buyers prospective. I eventually sold out to a Commercial Realtor Company in 2015 and retired out to my recreational property.
In 2018 I came out of retirement and started working with Alberta & Saskatchewan business brokers and commercial realtors using my established networks & confidential marketing platforms to find qualified vetted buyers for their client’s business opportunities. This service has worked out well for all involved and is still going strong.
Over time I realized that the services I designed for my Broker clients could also be beneficial for business owners who needed help to sell their business themselves, and in getting their businesses ready for sale as well. So, late in 2019 I started research on how I could provide different Business for Sale by owner services.
A few big surprises resulted from my research.
· Less than 20% of all businesses for sale in Alberta/Saskatchewan sell.
· Another finding was that 90% of all businesses sold are by the business owners themselves.
· Many business owners were getting their business selling advice/pricing online (One of the reasons why so many businesses do not sell)
· I also discovered during my discussions with hundreds of business buyers many were having difficulty in knowing what questions to ask and what to look for during the due diligence buying process.
Most business sellers and buyers know what they want to do but sometimes just need help in getting there. I understand that business owners and business buyers have different levels of business selling & buying experience.
What have I learned over the last 40 years that both business sellers and buyers want?
Fairness. Selling a business does not revolve around what one party wants. A successful business sale should be beneficial for all parties involved. Everyone wins. Business sellers get to move on to a new chapter in their lives, and business buyers have an opportunity to learn and invest in a proven business model that will provide income to support their families.
My services and past business experiences are well suited in helping clients with their selling,buying or buying needs. Together we will work together to achieve your final goal.
