When you are thinking about buying some business and are looking at a specific business, the real challenge is to determine if it’s the right “fit” for you.  It is helpful to ask the following questions:

    • Does the business look exciting and interesting to me?
    • Do I feel that I can improve the business?
    • Would the business offer me pride of ownership?
    • Would I feel comfortable operating the business?
    • Does the business meet my goals for business ownership?
    • Does the business utilize my skills?
    • How do I see the business helping me to operate in my strengths?
    • Where will the business stretch and challenge me?

A business that fits will be a good match for your interests and skill set, provide a challenge and an opportunity for personal growth, and will meet you financial needs. Your business broker can help you assess how a specific business fits you.
