How to Find a Business to Acquire that is not Listed for Sale
This blog post has some great insights into proprietary business searches. It really struck a chord with me because it emphasizes being well-prepared and adaptable. I loved the idea of approaching the goal of buying a business like building a sales organization, which adds an entrepreneurial twist to the process. The step-by-step guide for organizing your search is super practical, especially the tips on finding target companies. Personalizing your outreach, being persistent, and avoiding downtime are all great reminders. And the tip about creating "serendipitous" opportunities was a creative touch I hadn't thought of.
Overall, this post is like a friendly guide for anyone looking to navigate the world of off-market business acquisitions. I also like how your blog itself lays out the process of business buying. Based on this post alone, it looks like it goes far deeper than mistakenly buying lemons on Flippa.
