I can tell you that being a business broker is a bruising business. But it surely can be exhilarating! I guess that’s what keeps us going. It’s like that perfect golf shot. Thwack! You get so few of those, but you keep swinging away every day to get that feeling again.
The truism “if you’re not pissing somebody off, you’re not getting anything done” seems to fit my job most days.
Hey, this isn’t a pity party. I wanted to make the obvious statement that selling your business is hard too. You know that. You set a goal and envision what your successful sale should look like. There will be many twists and turns, up days and just plain depressing days along the path to the completion of a transaction.
Enjoy every grueling minute of it! Yell at me! I can take it. I might even yell back at you. Then I’ll buy you a beer. And tomorrow, we’ll do it again.
