      Chris,
      Thanks so very much. You get it! While we can all read as many articles we like – we need the details! And so I sincerely hope that readers will get a benefit from the postings.

    I think you need to say more about who you are. I found this reading the comments in the Chaos article in newsweek. Some of what you are writing about is good – basic but still good stuff. I was just trying to explain customer concentrations to my brother in law over the weekend… But I distrust your motives and figure you are just creating a way to market businesses for sale, if you disclose more, even be honest that you are just trying to get people to your business listings i think you have a better chance. So sorry I don’t fall in line with the other 2 posts today.. BUT I think you need fill out your about page more openly and fairly

      Bo,
      Thanks for the comments. Its seems impossible that in this day and age someone would actually offer advice and seek no return. In truth at some point I would like to monetize the site – no doubt this is capitalism. However, I am not a broker, I am not an accountant or lawyer and in fact I have no services to sell. I was an accountant received an MBA from NYU and joined an investmnet bank – then was a CFO of a $200MMM business. I partnered up with someone to buy businesses. We did. The experience left me dazed – for all my experience I still got it wrong. I can only imagine what the novice – first time buyer will go through. But relevant articles are written by journalists not people in the trenches. I wanted to help the new buyer or novice buyer avoid my mistakes. They have been so gut-wrenching that I wanted others the benefit of my experience. If I receive advertising – so be it – but I will never change the impetus for starting this – helping the buyer – period.

    I find your articles very interesting and hope you can keep posting. I was looking at your businesses for sale area and noticed the links didn’t quite work as expected.

    I manually went to the Clayton Capital Partners site and noticed the “Outrageous Price Process” they use to sell businesses at higher than normal market valuations. I have to admit, I found it odd that the site that drove me there was a buyer-centric one.

      Sunil,
      Thanks – your comments are appreciated. I will keep posting as there is much to say. As for the Clayton Capital Partners item – well its was a Beta thing I am doing – so please take it as such. Also PLEASE subscribe – the more the merrier. I hope that each and every posting sheds some light on the process.

  4. Nice post, I love the website.

  5. Wow! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!

    Ahoi, your review on this site really got me interested up to the very last word, so I just had to comment on it. Luckily I stumpled on it over Google and I must confess to you I nearly never read the entire story of a blog since I often get tired of the “blabla” which is offered to me on a regular basis. Yours is totally different and finally well researched or written. Will for sure further check out your blog! 🙂
