ARTICLE: Why consider using a Business Broker (just like me) to Sell your Business?

Trying to sell your business on your own, having not done it before, can be fraught with danger! As the old adage goes, “You don’t know what you don’t know!“. There’s always the chance that you luck your way through, and all hail to you if you manage to do so.
