One of the ways a business owner can grow their business is to acquire an existing business. It is also a method whereby an individual who wants to go in to business can directly jump in to the arena without going trough some of the effort that needs to be put in to a start-up. However that only is a good idea if it makes financial sense. Just like paying too much at an auction for an item, paying too much for an existing business will make your path to success harder. That doesn’t just mean paying too much cash for the business itself, it can mean paying too much by having to invest too much time, or too much advertising, that can affect your family and or health.
