Spending the next 3 days learning further about all things Buy and Sell Websites. Looking forward to sharpening my saw on the skill set I am nurturing and developing and enjoying. Sometimes you just have to DO to work it out!

Fortunately, during your time as a Broker, you come across people who get it!
By that I mean, there is no education component required in order for them to understand what you’re revealing.
And what a pleasure that is when it happens…

Had a meeting on Wednesday with a well-established Business Advisor. As usual, there was a few things on the agenda, one of which was the introduction of a business we have for sale. The reason was because I had seen this particular chap present a keynote recently and what he spoke of is how we want to sell this business. Hence the invitation for a coffee and a chat.

Much to our collective delight, he could see what we are trying to achieve and on first glance, is prepared to work in with us to get a mutually beneficial outcome. Happy days!

BS30 Online Venue Business
Completed Sellability Score
So, the concept of the turnaround specialist has been introduced. It’s now in their capable hands.

BS49 Home Help…
Due Diligence – done. Client confirmation – done. Acceptance by Franchisor – done. Contracts now in the hands of lawyers.
Slight complication here where there was a possible “gazumping” on the cards, but fortunately our process stood up.

BS53 Balloons! and all that goes with them…
Back to GumTree we go…

BS59 Niche Service Provider in Building Trade
via Sellability Score.
It’s all systems go! Advertisement is ready to fire.  This is a cracker for a white-collar wanting to get out of the office or a trade wanting to get off the tools. Given how close to end-of-financial-year it is, we’re going to wait a few weeks, get the 2014 numbers done and then go to market.

BS60 Advertising and Events agency
(via Sellability Score)
The Linkedin campaign commenced sourcing and contacting larger agencies. Some have said thanks but no thanks. Otherwise have accepted the preliminary information but nothing else as yet. And others haven’t responded at all.  Next phase will be going to our “referral network”. What will next week bring?

BS72 Niche Bookseller and Training Provider
Contacted key players, the largest of which has put their hand up. It’s all rather good timing in so far as their next Board meeting is Sunday, so the Business Profile has already been provided, in readiness.

Training provider
Assisting colleague by introducing the perfect buyer for his selling client. However, due to their own growth plans, this has been placed on the back burner. Vendor has given all-clear to 3 private parties who have indicated interest, with another 2 more in the wings. IMs have been sent.

Health Care Provider
Assisting colleague by introducing the Home Help interested party to their client, now that the authority has been signed. As it turns out, the offer out of nowhere was being used as their first step in the process. Unfortunately for the prospective buyer, it’s way off the mark and that’s because they listened to their accountant who clearly doesn’t understand the business buying/selling process. They’ve been invited in to discuss the issue but so far no response.

It’s all happening…. Others I’ve talked too.. are you interested in any one of them?
