Can you guarantee me the people you have with you will stay with YOU tomorrow?

No. Contracts? lol. No.....

You guys freak out every time a business sale is mentioned because theres no guarantees yada yada yada.

Can you be any more short sighted? No.

Do you know what it costs you to get clients? No

Of course you need a Non Compete Clause in the sales contract.....*shakes head*


Businesses are bought and sold every day and if you want to sit on the sidelines while someone else takes RISK....then do just that.

To the OP. Sounds like a bargain to me. Buy it tomorrow then provide excellent customer service.

Done.

Go where the money is.. that's what I'm learning more and more
