Whether you are starting a small business or going to buy a business, you have the potential to be in charge of your financial future, and from this vantage point, you can realize your dreams and enrich your life!
Due to the downturn in our economy and the highest unemployment rate in fifty years, people are facing severe financial hardship and a very uncertain future. Multinational corporate employers seem to care only about their "bottom line," not about their employees, and increasingly, "be your own boss" is resonating with people who once worked for someone else. Many Americans now realize that the best way to safeguard their family's financial future is to take steps to control their livelihood and thus control their destiny. Whether you are starting a small business or going to buy a business, you have the potential to be in charge of your financial future, and from this vantage point, you can realize your dreams and enrich your life.
If you are considering starting a new business, it is important to recognize that national research repeatedly reveals that almost every new small business is destined to fail within the first 3 years. At Vested we believe the best way to overcome this problem is to buy a business that is already operational and showing a profit. An established business has a track record that demonstrates a real need for a product or service in a particular locale. Financial records are available which verify past sales and most sellers are willing to stay on for an agreed upon period to train a new business owner.
When you are ready to buy a business, you may need financial help to make your dream become a reality. At Vested Business Brokers, we have sold over 750 businesses and in the process we have become experts at helping a business buyer obtain financing. In addition to our own financial programs, we also work with a number of independent financing sources that can help you navigate goverment programs like the Small Business Administration. Of significant note in this economy is the fact that most sellers who are listing their businesses for sale with Vested are offering seller backed financing at very low interest rates.
People that buy a business come from a wide range of past positions and professions and we recognize that every business buyer, regardless of background, is a different individual with different needs and aspirations. We train our business brokers to be good listeners and it is this skill, above all others, that enables your broker to use all of our resources to match you to the "right" business for sale. It is also the reason why so many buyers choose Vested Business Brokers to be their business broker of choice after an initial "no-obligation" consultation. Call us at 1(877) 735-5224 and we will arrange for one our business brokers from your local area to call you today.
If you feel you are ready to buy a business without having a business broker consultation first, you can browse through our listings of businesses for sale on our Home Page or Buy a Business Page and then register to become a business buyer at no charge. A registered business buyer agrees not to share any confidential information we give them about a listing and is permitted to view all of the financial details of a given business for sale, as well as receive the address of businesses for sale to do a "drive by." You can register by signing our confidentiality agreement electronically, or you can print out the agreement and fax it to our corporate office.
