I searched and searched for a business to buy near my home now and never found one, starting from scratch was fun but it really took a long time to get established.
It's interesting you said this - had a phone call with a husband and wife team, 20 years in business, and I told them that many business owners wish they could jump right in with an established scenario and those who are deep into their business at times wish they could start over from scratch and avoid the mistakes they have made over the years.
