Are you thinking about becoming a business broker?
Business brokerage is an exciting and rewarding profession. It provides the opportunity to help people sell their business that they have worked hard to build and is usually their biggest financial asset. It also allows you to help people achieve the dream of owning their own business. With the aging population of business owners, there are opportunities for competent business brokers. Business brokerage is a growing industry.
Our brokers operate as independent contractors, enjoying a great deal of personal and professional freedom. Business brokerage allows you to have an income potential that is open-ended, and it offers an excellent lifestyle. However, it also requires hard work, discipline, the ability to work with people, a desire to help them — all coupled with a willingness to learn. A successful Business Broker can expect to earn a six figure annual income after learning the trade and building reputation in the local market. Our brokers come from a diverse career background including accounting, law, finance, real estate, engineering, business administration, and sales and marketing. The preferred background is someone who has many years of experience managing their own small company. Another preferred background is an experienced business professional with management, marketing and financial experience working for large corporations.
