Former co-worker is selling his business (he is relocating). I have been doing work fo him for 3 years. Always helped him out when he needed it. He also gave me some advice on how to start my lawn biz 5 years ago. I am giving him what $ he wants for the biz spread out in 12 pmts. He gets another offer that is 1k more then mine with 25% down. He says he will most likely take the better offer because in his words "business is business". If he loses any contracts next year that will affect the selling price negatively. I tell him OK, but I am going to bid the contracts when they are up because "business is business". He says I should wait 1 year until I bid. I've been doing these contracts for quite awhile and know how much they go for. What would you do? Bid them now, Bid them in 1 year or don't bid at all.
