Is buying a business easier than starting one from scratch?
|Personally I think that buying a business is a lot easier than starting a business from scratch. When you start a business from scratch you have to do everything. You have to have to reinvent the wheel in many instances. When you purchase a business it's already operating. There are already pieces in place and then you can improve upon them and move them around. So I believe it's easier to purchase an existing business. You know more about it, there's more information, more history and the best business to buy is one that you're already operating. I purchased a business I was already operating. I knew everything about it, I didn't have any surprises. And a lot of people get into a business and don't get into owning a business by purchasing the business they are already working for.|
