If one were to look at all the various listing services available, a common theme becomes businesses for sale by owner. Often times, business owners and business sellers think selling their business should be an easy process. After all, who knows the business better than they do? They are usually the accountant, the attorney, the salesperson, and the HR department all rolled into one. They think the process will simply involve selling to someone else who is already in the same industry. At the small business level, this rarely works. Small business owners in a similar industry usually do not see the value of paying a multiple of earnings or cash flow to buy a business. they think they can simply expand the use of their advertising dollars to attract more business.
