True stories from small business sellers using this material and support.

“Before being introduced to Mike and his do-it-yourself courses, I had listed my hair salon with a local business broker. I didn’t know any better and got locked into a one-year ‘Exclusive Right of Sale’ contract. I didn’t get any offers. In fact, I had ZERO showings. What a waste of 12-months! I took the SellBiz full course (which was eye opening, because I’m sure my broker did few of the things taught in the course). I followed the steps and got four offers within three months of listing my business for-sale-by-owner. I just accepted one of the offers and expect to close this month. Thanks, Mike!”

“I’ve started and sold several of my own small businesses. I thought I knew how to do it, but my last business sale was not going well. I spent a small fortune advertising on one of the popular business listing services. I got a few inquiries, but they were a waste of time. One of the prospects turned out to be a competitor and spread rumors that I was going out of business! I pulled the listing and read Mike’s ‘Sell Your Own Biz’ Guide to figure out what I was doing wrong. Armed with a better selling strategy I re-listed my business. Mike offered to screen inquiries for me, so I didn’t have to disclose the name and location of my business until the interested parties signed an NDA and were pre-qualified. Worked like a charm. Sold the business in 75 days. Now, I’m looking to buy another business with my profits and will be a lot smarter about selling when the time comes again. You’re in good hands with Mike’s materials and advice!”

“My Father-in-Law became very ill and we needed to sell our business quickly, so we could move back home to care for him. We needed to walk-away with every dime possible to make this life change. We didn’t want to pay a 10% broker fee. We figured we could sell our business ourselves a little below market and still come out ahead. We found Mike’s ‘Sell-Your-Business’ course by doing a Google search. The course (and Mike) were a blessing. We never even had to pay to advertise the sale. With Mike’s help, we identified several companies we thought might be interested in our business and reached out directly to them. We sold slightly ABOVE market price in just 40 days. The sale requires us to provide training and client-transition services to the buyer for six months, but we worked out a deal (again thanks to Mike’s guidance) to do that remotely. Dad’s better, life’s good. God bless you, Mike!”
