From the Back Cover:

Small business guru Ed Pendarvis has a powerful message for everyone struggling with the economic uncertainties of life in these times of record job losses: "Invest in a sure thing--invest in yourself!"

Worried about losing your job to downsizing or outsourcing? Tired of working longer hours for less pay? Had it with the corporate rat-race and think you're ready to become your own person controlling your own destiny? If so, then this book is for you. It shows you how to achieve real job security and financial freedom by becoming the owner of your own small business or franchise.

But isn't going into business for yourself risky? Not necessarily. As Ed explains, small business is the most secure growth opportunity there is--especially when the business you go into has a proven track record and a loyal customer base. And, as boss of your own business, given that you'll keep more of the profits your company earns, your chances of becoming a millionaire are much greater than they would be as an employee. You'll never again have to worry about downsizing, arbitrary layoffs, or having your job outsourced to a developing nation.

As founder and head of his own successful international business brokerage firm, Ed Pendarvis knows pretty much all there is to know about matching people up with the right small businesses and franchises for them.

In Buying a Business to Secure Your Financial Freedom he draws upon his experiences, as well as the experiences of hundreds of small business owners and entrepreneurs around the country who've realized their dreams of financial independence, and shows you how to:

  • Locate the best business or franchise for you and your family
  • Determine the real value and growth prospects of a franchise
  • Negotiate the best price and best payment terms and conditions
  • Obtain financing at the most reasonable terms
  • Complete the sale
  • Protect your investment
  • Achieve true financial freedom

Packed with priceless insider advice and tips you won't find anywhere else, Buying a Business to Secure Your Financial Freedom could be your ticket to the life you want and deserve.

Find true financial freedom in a job no one can outsource

In this important book by small business guru Ed Pendarvis, you'll discover the secret behind achieving real job security and financial freedom in these economically complex times.

Did you know that 98% of businesses in America are small businesses, and that most of the economic growth that has occurred over the past decade has been in the small business sector? Or that, contrary to popular opinion, small business is today's leading job growth opportunity and the best investment you can make? The trick is buying not just any business, but an established one with a good cash flow and a loyal customer base. In Buying a Business to Secure Your Financial Freedom you'll learn how from one of the world's leading experts on matching people with the businesses of their dreams.

A perfect primer for first-time entrepreneurs, it fills you in on what you need to know about:

  • Finding the right business for you
  • The importance of cash flow
  • Valuation methods
  • Financing and terms
  • The art of negotiating the best price
  • Protecting your investment

Don't leave your family's financial future in the hands of corporate bean-counters. Ed Pendarvis gives you the knowledge about Buying a Business to Secure Your Financial Freedom.
