How to Buy an Existing Business: An Exciting Alternative to Corporate America

Over the next 10 years, 8 million business owners will be exiting their businesses. This “Transition Tidal Wave” presents the best opportunity in decades for individuals trying to exit Corporate America and become entrepreneurs.

But here’s the problem: The process of buying a business through traditional channels, such as business brokers, is extremely inefficient. In fact, it’s why 90% of prospective buyers never find a business to buy.

Listen to this Master Class session led by Aaron Paul, President of Acquisition Finders, to learn everything you need to know about buying an existing business, including:

  • The best time to buy an existing business (hint: don’t wait!)
  • How to avoid business-buying roadblocks
  • Strategies for finding the right business at a great price
  • Financing tips, case studies from past acquisitions, and much more

Aaron will tell you how to make the right choice and hit the ground running.

Here’s What attendees of the Live Event Had to Say:

  • “Content was terrific!”
  • “Great overview of the acquisition process for smaller companies.”
  • “Think about making this a series. There are multiple deeper dives (but still at a high level) such as having a class on financing, one on due diligence, another on legal process, dos/don’ts, etc.”
  • “While I originally started with ExecuNet as an [in-role] corporate executive, I have found myself more interactive in the series dedicated to corporate alternatives/transition. Please continue with this line of subjects.”
