    I was at my local lawn mower shop today looking at ZTR's. In the conversation mentioned that I was trying to grow from my current 20 accounts. He mentioned that a local company was looking to change careers because hes an older gentleman and was wanting to sell his mowers and accounts which was around 50. I mentioned that I don't borrow money so unless he would do things the Dave Ramsey way I couldn't do it. He mentioned that the guy did have an offer that was for percentage of profits or sales over X amount of time.

    What ?s do I need to ask when making this first call.

    Too late. My full time buddy already beat me to it.

    Thanks for the link though I'm going to review that for next time.
