The Complete Guide to Buying a Business helps you decide if you're ready to leave the rat race and answers such critical questions as: What is the tradeoff between risk and compensation? If the corporate world is no longer "it" for you, then what is? What are the advantages and disadvantages of self-employment? Finding a business that fits your goals is essential to your success and happiness. Small businesses rise or fall mainly on the talent of the owner. Therefore it's important to identify the specific skills that will make or break you as a business owner, Snowden warns.Packed with exercises, The Complete Guide to Buying a Business aids you in matching your experience, skills, and personal life-style preferences with a suitable enterprise. The book furnishes professional techniques for locating the business for you, as well as tactics for researching companies that are for sale.

Fully three-quarters of people fail in their attempts because they lack knowledge and a plan of action. But as Snowden states, "If you approach the job of finding the right business for you with due diligence and intelligence, the odds are excellent that you will find a company that has a high likelihood of long-term success under your directorship and the potential for an excellent financial return, as well."

After reading book after book about buying business from library and book store, this book still remain my major guide of buying a business. Originally, I borrow this book from library but after renew two times and return the book and later borrow it again, then I finally realize how valuable this book is. Finally, I bought a copy from Amazon. The author gave very good advices and even provide examples later become my standard model to compare against the business I am going to buy. No B.S. is why this book stand out.
Excellent Customer Service. I certainly got more than I bargained for. Thank you!
