Riddle me this; Why do Business Buyers NOT want Trade-based ones?

We’re seeing a number of trade based businesses at present that are not getting the selling pricing they probably deserve and that prospective buyers are turning their noses up at… and I don’t get it. They are good businesses, making good money. YES, they require work (albeit manual) but then doesn’t every good business. If you’re at all interested in: maintenance concrete polishing or want to be advised of those that come on the market Please drop me a line at denise@xcllusive.com.au and I can fill you in with further details as they come to hand.

CASE STUDY: From $6 to $5668 per qtr in GST in just 3 years…

Who would think it is pleasing to use Tax as a Growth Indicator? This story from one of my charges (Julie Demczuk of www.exclusivepmg.com.au) just this week, got to love a share such as this: I’m sitting in my office on my own thinking about when I first started the business.  I remember saying to my bookkeeper I can’t wait until I start paying GST.  I was so excited when my first GST bill was $6.  After three  years my GST bill for the last quarter is $5,668. What an amazing difference. What an amazing difference indeed! Whilst I haven’t contributed…

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. But what I know for sure is, as an experienced Business Broker, is that most do not sell, or sell well. You (as the owner) eventually use a Broker after trying unsuccessfully. In many cases, all that’s unfortunately been achieved is that it takes a whole lot longer to…

ARTICLE: should I Start or Buy a Business? that is the Question!

An excerpt from my article featured on www.startsatsixty.com.au talking about popping Buyers Goggles on to investigate all the different buying opportunities there are… Many people think that the typical small businesses offered for sale are only those such as cafes and other food or retail outlets, however almost all types of businesses do come up for sale at some point in time. (There is of course the option of tapping an existing business owner on the shoulder and asking them to consider thinking about selling as well). I strongly encourage you not to make a decision about starting a business until you have…

#OpportunityAlert: Connectional Intelligence = How to Get Big Things Done

“We’ve been living with the internet now for twenty years and it’s not news that we’re all connected. Unless a totalitarian government swoops down and takes away our cell phones and our access to social media, that connectivity isn’t going anywhere. The question is: How do you and I grab hold of this newfound connectivity to take us to the places we want to go? At a time when old-fashioned routes to power—the schools you went to, the contacts in your address book, the families you were born into—are not the only ways to get ahead, how do we connect…
