Summary

Many smart entrepreneurs prefer to buy an existing business instead of beginning a new one. Buying a business that is already operational will bring many benefits, including an already established product or service, well-trained staff who know the business, and enough success to have kept the company afloat for a period of time. Not having any money to purchase the business will not necessarily keep you from buying it. Banks have been tightening their commercial lending standards in the last few years, but you can still find the funding necessary to purchase a business without using your own money. If you were born with that "entrepreneurial spark" in your eye, then no economist or banker is going to keep you from starting a business. While many analysts may say that it's not a good time to become a business owner, others have found that buying a business with no money is suddenly a possibility.

interesting book, needs more editing

the book was interesting, but it had a weird section in the Middle with a Mezzanine Financing guy that sounded more like a infatuation. oh and on seems like a textbook summary of how to buy a business
