Buying or selling a small business can be a confusing and/or frustrating process.
For over twenty-five years I have both bought & sold businesses as an individual, have been a highly successful business broker/intermediary, started two highly active websites/networks of business buyers & sellers (BizBen.com, BizBenNetwork.com) and currently advise (ProBuy & ProSell Programs) both business buyers & sellers with buying and selling California small businesses.
Here Is What You Will Receive From The ProSell Program:
