Publisher's Summary

Want to break free of the shackles of your employee life? Want to control your own destiny and set your own hours, priorities and life direction? Simple, become an entrepreneur and start a business!

Don't like the risk of starting and want to buy a successful business instead? Okay, just don't do these stupid mistakes that I see novice business buyers make over and over and over again.

Every day thousands of really awful businesses go up for sale, and thousands of good businesses go up for sale with outrageously inflated asking prices. Many of these businesses will sell to people who simply have no idea what they're getting into and don't know how to get the right guidance or advice. Invest some time and learn from the mistakes that I've observed through my years as a business broker and private sale transaction adviser. You really can learn from other peoples' mistakes and make yourself a better deal; or know when to go home and leave your money in the bank.

Just What I Was Looking For.

Finally, someone who appears to shoot it straight. I will repeat this audiobook until absorption. I may buy the physical copy of the book as a companion to highlight text or take notes. Thank you David C. Barnett.
If you are thinking of buying this book and you are buying or aspire to buy a business, this book is a good start. It’s easy to do something stupid or careless because of lack of knowledge. So many people want to sell you on what you can do and avoid telling you of potential pitfalls, consequences, and things that would be unwise. This book gives you a heads up on actions you should avoid if you want to buy and own a business intelligently and dispels a few beliefs about being a business owner that people have probably picked up from those who didn’t know better, or who were unlearned and inexperienced. I will assume this book is good for experienced people as well. I don’t see why not. If you are a novice, this book is a must have. There is no question about that. It definitely surpasses the guys that just want to sell you a book just to build their own passive income.
