The Yelp reviews are as follows: ‘French Bakery bakes my favorite croissant in Los Angeles. I have this thing for croissants. I love them. The lighter, flakier, buttier (is that a word?), and fresher a croissant is the happier I am. The basic French-style croissant at French Bakery is beautiful. Their chocolate croissant is even better. I’m not a fan of almond, but the chocolate almond croissant is sweet. If you want to make my day, please stop by French Bakery and pick some up on the way over…” And many more reviews like this.

A business broker is basically an intermediary between a buyer and a seller of a business. We represent the seller, the buyer or both in some cases.
One of the most important things for the sale of a business is the valuation. As brokers, we analyze all financials and determine the value of the business, using a multiple of SDE (sellers discretionary earnings). This multiple is determined based on comps of sales of businesses in the same industry.
Once the seller of the business agrees with your valuation, then the broker puts the business on the market and fields [...]
A large part of my function as a business broker is to guide the seller and make sure they have the best possible experience when they are selling their business. After all, a person’s business is like a family member.
As a business owner you get totally attached to going to the same place every day, you spend more time there than anywhere else. This business is what gives you everything you have in life. For some folks, their business gives them a lot more than they could probably earn anywhere else.
I love being an entrepreneur, I love going [...]
The single most important element in determining to sell your business is the valuation.
When I first meet potential sellers I never ask them if they want to sell their business until I do a valuation for them. How can I sit there and ask someone to sell when I know that most business owners have no real idea what their business is worth.
A few months ago I went to see a gentleman and when the topic of valuation came up he told me, “I know exactly how much my business is worth” I said “that’s good, how [...]
From the seller’s perspective, it is crucial to be prepared, regardless of their motivation. There should be a structure for things to go as smoothly as possible.
The seller should have a team for this purpose:

But, at the same time, the seller should have a plan of action that requires homework for things to go along smoothly.

Do you hate to pay taxes?
I do. When I think of giving the Government my hard earned money my first reaction is: Like hell! I’d rather jump in front of a train! I’m just saying!
I don’t mind paying taxes until I see all the corruption and misuse of taxes and how there are schools in our country that can’t afford decent books and materials for their students.
Then I hate to pay taxes. Because I know my taxes should be going to do well and they don’t always get to their destinations. Sure, we are better than most [...]
