Buying a business

My partner and I are looking at buying an established business but do not have any experience in this area. We do not know where to start and are looking for some advice as to what the first step is. Your help would be very much appreciated. Regards Brian

    What do you love? You are going to be working that job for 12 hours per day so you might as well do something you love! : ) I've worked in so many tedious jobs in the past so am happy to create the kind of environment that I will enjoy being in..

    Answer: Hi Brian, Elizabeth Gillam has a podcast all about Franchises and what to look for at http://www.elizabethgillam.com/podcast/. She bought two franchises to get a career change from being an accountant over a decade ago. She also provides a service that will help match you to the right franchise, and give you support. Check out her LinkedIn Profile at https://au.linkedin.com/in/elizabethgillam [ I met Elizabeth when we were both speakers at a Business Conference in October. I was impressed by her knowledge and genuine motivations to help franchisees succeed.]
