From Search to Success You Will Get Clear On Your Acquisition Vision, Receive Expert Support, Learn Creative Deal Structures & Close On Your First Business

Ross Zeiger - SMB Buyer Advisor

Other business brokers and buyer advisors I spoke to have a tendency to overcomplicate things. I found Ross from his YouTube channel and the way he explains the [business buying] process really resonated with me. He was a huge help in figuring out what business I wanted to buy.

The Great Economic Opportunity

Has arrived

There are 73 million Baby Boomers set to retire in the 2020's.

40% of all US small businesses and franchises are owned by Boomers.

350,000 Baby Boomer-owned businesses are expected to sell each year between 2023 and 2030.

Let those numbers sink in.

Think about the independent businesses in your town: convenience stores, pet shops, restaurants, gyms, and so on.

Many of these are wonderful, profitable businesses with great customers, established processes, and respected names.

Tragically, if they aren't taken over by the next generation, these businesses will close their doors for good.

That's where you come in.

These businesses are your doorway to the following:
- Freedom
- Fulfillment
- Higher income
- Community impact
- Control over your life

We are in the golden age of acquisition entrepreneurship.

The American Dream is alive and well for those willing to reach down and grab it.

If you're ready to learn how to take advantage of these opportunities, keep reading.

From Search to Success

You want to buy a business but don't know where to start. You've seen the YouTubers who buy businesses but surely, you feel, they are smarter than you. You're worried that it's too good to be true. You feel like you lack the experience, money, or knowledge to find and buy a business. None of your friends have bought a business. You don't know who to ask questions to about the process.Write down how satisfied you are with your job on a scale of 1 to 10. Be brutally honest with yourself. Most people write down a 3 or 4. This is a tragedy. You have one life. If your work isn't a 9 or 10, something needs to change. Business ownership is a path to freedom, fulfillment, and higher income. When you are your parents' age, you will look back at this time and either be grateful you made the leap, or full of regret for not.I always knew I wanted to be a business owner.I went to college and joined the military thinking I would gain skills needed to be a better entrepreneur. The truth is, this was a form of procrastination. I would have been better off starting or buying businesses early and often.When I got off active duty, just shy of 30 years old, I finally made the leap. I used the savings I'd accumulated for the previous few years and bought a small business.I had no idea what I was doing. I didn't know what an income statement or balance sheet was. I had never hired people or even worked a cash register before. It was trial by fire.I call it my real life MBA. I grew that business and ended up selling it a year later. It was stressful yet one of the best periods of my life.But, it would have all happened differently if I had someone to guide me through the buying process. I would have saved myself significant headaches. The truth is, I wouldn't have bought that business at all and saved my precious savings for a business that was a better fit for me. One that I would likely still be running.That is why I created this package. To provide you my knowledge and experience in your acquisition journey. Here is what I offer you:- I will be your tutor and your guide.- I will give you a framework for determining the right business to buy.- I will help you analyze deals and make sure you are getting a good price.- I will help you figure out how to structure the deal.- I will make sure you have access to all the best educational resources on the internet so you're well prepared going into your Search.- I will help you make your first acquisition a success!You may be thinking, can't I do this on my own? Yes, you can. I did.However, buying a business is one of the biggest financial moves you will ever make. By DIYing it, it cost me tens of thousands of dollars and months of lost time. The value you get from working with me will pay dividends. If you feel like this service wasn't worth the amount paid, I will give you a full refund.If you're ready to start your entrepreneurial journey the right way, click the "Buy Now" button below and I will immediately start helping you on your Search.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you a business broker?

No. I started in this industry in 2022 as a business broker, representing both buyers and sellers. However, I prefer working with buyers which is why I no longer call myself a broker but an SMB Buyer Advisor.

How many Searchers do you work with at once?

Time prevents me from working with more than five Searchers at a time. I want to ensure I can meet each person's unique criteria as I send you interesting deal opportunities and answer your questions.

Do you only work with first-time business buyers?

Yes, for now. My educational content and consulting program is geared toward first-time business buyers. However, I am building out a separate program for serial acquirers. Check back soon!

What if I just want to book a consulting call?

I offer one-hour consulting calls. You can book time with me by clicking the button below:

What if I'm not happy with the service?

I stand behind my work and believe it is worth every dollar. At any point in the process, if you think I'm not providing enough value, I will refund the full purchase price.
