For people who are trying to avoid a 9-5, the subject of business ownership could be a way to become more independent from the average workday. However, starting a business from scratch is a tedious journey filled with hardship and disappointment. For younger business people, there seems to be a rise in the trend of business buying. For starters, buying a business seems to be easier than starting a business outright; already-owned businesses have an established market and a system in place to run the day-to-day operations.
On top of having an already established process, if you’re looking to franchise a business (one type of business buying), there are individuals within the parent company you can reach out to that guide you to success in this new business venture. These individuals can also advise you on the best location to attract foot traffic, as well as effective ways to lead employees. Finding a business to buy is not at all difficult either, with websites like BizBuySell & BizQuest updating their systems daily with new businesses that are up for sale.
The biggest drawback of buying a business outright seems to be the cost associated with the purchase. Unless an individual has five, sometimes six figures tucked away to pay for the fees associated with the purchase of the business, the process of buying said business stops before it can start; there also must be a letter of intent, a vetting process, and a final negotiation before any type of progress is made. Depending on your talents, lifestyle, interests, capital, and level of business acumen, buying a business outright may be a good idea, but an individual must do their due diligence before going about this process.
