So I got wind today that there might be someone wanting to buy me out. I'm a sub for plowing for a guy and i heard he wants to buy my company and hire me to work for him. No real details yet, he hasn't even said anything, I just heard it through family members. Just wanted to get some conversation going on the matter. What would it take for you to sell out and go work for someone else? From what I gather I'd be running the outdoor side of his business (he does indoor and outdoor maintenance for large commercial places). I think he wants me to grow the business for him and run it. He's older so he's set in his way, but he's always talking about expanding but never does anything on it. Plus I think he wants a future for his son, but he doesn't trust his son to take it all over (long story). For me to do it, he'd have to buy my accounts out, pay for any expenses that are already made for the up coming year (already have alot out for advertising, insurance and some other stuff), I wouldn't sign a non-compete form...ever, salary would have to be pretty nice possibly with bonuses for signing more work on, either a company truck or a fuel card because I'd have to drive almost an hour to get to his shop, and basicly have free reign of whatever I'm running. I highly doubt all that will happen, but if it did, I'd consider it. It'd basicly be like having my own business without the headache of dead beat non-payers and all the other not so fun aspects of business. So what would it take for you guys to sell it all and go work for someone?
