Without going into a ton of detail I had this guy that I know very well offer to seel out to me. He wants to stay on for 5 years @ 60,000.00 per year. That is the number he profits from the company each year. He does this with the spot help of 2 part time guys. His selling point is him staying on would make keeping the current customers very easy. He wants no payment for the company itself just the job. He wants to get out from under having to do the books and make all the decisions. He just wants to be told what to do and when to do it . The plus I see is he feels he can do alot more work by not having to bid all the jobs, do the books, and track all the jobs as far as when and where. The company can make more money on the current customers as he just does what they ask him to do only and really doesn't ever sell a thing. The company makes enough to float him and pay all the current operating expenses, comes with all his equipment(no charge), and the company has made roughly the same money for the last 10 years. We are looking for a change of area so trying to decide to start over or buy this guy out. I can give more info if needed but just wondering if the idea of the thing basically taking care of itself and the money I would get from the company would have to come from up selling the current base, New customers(just like starting over) and doing some of the labor myself to save some on labor costs when I'm not out selling. I have been in sales and lawncare and putting them together would be great. As a solo guy now I feel I get behind very fast and start to get customers go elsewhere do to not taking the money fast enough. I have never been able to get anyone to work for me that didn't become my competition the next week or that was worth anything. This would put me in the sales and hand shaking mode right out of the gate.
