I talk to a lot of owners who just assume there is a large pool of buyers out there for their
business and they further assume the buyers are rich and will pay top dollar for their business.
Many times, a business owner says to me “call me when you have a rich dumb buyer, and then
we’ll talk.” [well, they may not use those precise words, but you get the sense of what I mean.]
What they are really hoping for is a synergistic buyer, perhaps a competitor who is looking to
grow through acquisition.

Yes, it happens, we have facilitated deals like that. However, there are two key issues: it may
not happen in your industry, and it may not happen when you want it to. If you are serious
about retiring, or selling your business, you need to take action – not wait for a call out of the
blue (that may or may not happen).
