When I look over the past 20 years as a business broker, I think about all the lives I’ve helped. The team here at First Choice have a strong sense of pride in the work we do, because we know just how much business brokers add value.
Sometimes business brokers meet people at the most difficult time in their life. Perhaps their marriage or partnership has dissolved, or perhaps they need to move on for health or lifestyle reasons. Sometimes people need to relocate interstate. When these things happen, people want to move on to the new chapter in their life as quickly as possible, with as little stress as possible.
The purpose of running a business should be to serve your life. It is important that your business life moves in tune with the rest of your life. For this reason, business brokers often help people to move through different stages in life. We help people at the starting stage, when they have a smaller budget, and need a smaller business to springboard off. Often this group are happy where they are for quite a long time, but will eventually use a business broker when it comes time to retire. Sometimes people in this first group manage to build up their first business, and want to buy a new opportunity. That might involve keeping the first business, and buying a second or third business to run concurrently. Or it might involve selling the first business, and upsizing to a bigger venture. We help people move onwards and upwards in their business lives.
We also help people to leave business, when it’s time. We help people retire! Every week we get calls from business owners who have been in their industry for 10 years or more, who are looking for a quieter life. We help this group transition to retirement.
Business brokers have huge advantages over people who try to do it all on their own. A business broker is specialised in selling businesses. We’ve done it time and time again, over years. We’ve seen businesses in every industry, at every size. We have a good idea of what will sell at what price. We know each business’ strengths and weaknesses. We know which target market to appeal to. We are experts at marketing. We have established websites (visited by thousands of buyers), telephone databases, email mail outs, and direct mailing campaigns. We have a huge network of people looking to buy businesses. We are the portal that brings buyers to sellers. We will help you to save a lot of time and energy, and we are the people who will transfer your years of hard work into cash. We are the people who are best placed to allow you to move to the next stage of your life.
If you’re looking at selling your business, we’d love to help you turn your business into cash, and help you move towards your new life. We’d also love to help you if you’re moving to a new stage of life and would like to buy. Telephone First Choice Business Brokers on 9899-1888 for a confidential discussion.
