One of the most important decisions you will make in your life is the day you decide you want to be your own boss. Working for yourself doesn’t always mean you need to start your own company. There is risk and reward in both starting a new business and purchasing an already existing business. I’ll tell you why you should choose the latter.

 

Experts say start-ups don’t make money for the first three years! If you don’t have at least 1-2 years’ worth of personal and business expenses set aside banks can be reluctant to fund a new business venture. In acquiring an already established business the sale is typically structured so that you can cover the debt service, take a salary and have some still left over to take your business to the next level.

Established/Successful Concept

Starting your own company from the ground up is a major risk and requires long hard unpaid hours, remember the previously mentioned three years? Buying an established business is grossly less risky and as a buyer, you already know that the concept works. You’re setting up your own demise if you start a business without even knowing who will buy your product. Your bankers will thank you for choosing a secure investment and financing will often be much easier to attain.

Seasoned Employees

One of the most valuable assets you are purchasing when buying an established business are the people already existing inside. Your work has already been done by the seller that vetted out these employees for your specific business and they have proven themselves by working well within the company. Having trained experienced staff that know the game plan and are ready to show you the ropes and keep running smoothly while you transition in is invaluable. With the right team in place, you can have a much easier time strategizing your company’s growth plan.

Solid Customer Base

A solid customer base, even small has huge potential for success. A reoccurring customer base is essential to the vitality of any company. Having core loyal customers and sales statistics that show a slow upward trend is crucial to the business and luckily for you with an established business it is likely already there.

Buying an established company can mean you just need to tweak some things here and there to have the business you wanted running the way you need; your investors will appreciate you investing in something proven and sound instead of pursuing a foundationless dream with little chances of success.
