Business Sales Philosophy:
         Selling and buying a business is one of the most important
         transactions that a person will make in their lifetime.  To 
         be a successful sale the business must be a good "fit" for
         the buyer and correctly priced by the seller.  The income
         generated by the new buyer must be adequate to support 
         the buyers desired lifestyle, pay a debt service payment, on
         the remaining balance of the purchase price (most
         businesses are financed through the seller or bank), and be
         able to set aside adequate working capital for business 
          needs.  If these characteristics are met in the pricing and 
         marketing of a business, 1) it will sell and 2) will sell to a 
         buyer who will successfully operate it after purchase.
