Ricardo asks some great questions about seller financing….

But part of his assumption is not correct.

It’s a mistake I’ve seen a lot of people make.

So, this week we’re going to address whether or not a seller financing note is part of your down payment or not.

Why not, and if it ever could be.

If it were, what would that look like?

I’ll tell you and you may be surprised that some sellers will accept it like this.

Todd wants to know what you have to tell the customers when a business is sold….

Do you need to tell them?

Or- can you keep it a secret?

Does it matter?

This week, we talk about the ‘depth’ of customer relationships and how this might impact how and what you tell customers when a business changes hands.

I say business is risky and the things that get you may surprise you…

Because these business owners and their stories will likely never be part of any Ted talk.

They’re comments about what can really happen in the world of small business.

But you can’t often hear them, because they’re whispers usually.

Will higher interest rates lead to financial ruin for business buyers?

Not if you’re careful and don’t overpay.

I built a little tool to demonstrate the effect of higher interest rates on buying a business under two common scenarios.

As you’ll see, rates can move quite a bit before it makes a material impact on your deal….

Matthew asks how to decide what business is right for you.

There are two ways:

  1. Extrapolate from self-analysis.
  2. The thesis method.

Let me summarize both and tell you what I think are some key factors to keep yourself from being caught up in ‘shiny object purgatory.’
