Buying a business

Before you start looking for a business to buy, think about what you can contribute to a business and what you’d desire to get back. Make a list of what is important to you. Look at your motivations. What do you want to achieve?  Consider the following factors:
Business sector: Learn as much as you can about your chosen business sector in order to be in a position to compare different businesses. Take the time to talk to people already involved in similar businesses. Find how to comply with the regulations and licenses that apply to your business industry.
Strengths: It’s important to find a business opportunity suitable to your skills, experience, lifestyle and aspirations.
Abilities: Are you able to achieve what you want to achieve?
Commitment: How much are you ready for the time, hard work and the money will be needed to put into finding the right business and make it successful?
Capital: How much money are you prepared to invest? The costs involved in buying a business can be substantial and should not be underestimated.
Expectations: What is the level of profit you expect to satisfy your needs?
Location: Do you like to find an opportunity in your local area or not?
Professional help: Ask for professional advice to assess and value your business target.
