You endure a lot when you own and run a small business. There is excitement, some rewards but also regular up's and down's in the 'day to day' blur of managing and growing.
To survive you develop a lot of different skills. However, many of you will also have figured out that you can't do it all alone. That you don't have all the answers. To help you will have used some trusted advisors or talked with some wise-heads.
These people are invaluable to help deal with the doosra’s (the Australian equivalent of a curve-ball) that small business regularly delivers up.
We have been trusted advisors and a wisehead for many small business owners since 2002. We've helped to prepare for sale and then sell, and we've helped to buy businesses. There’s a lot involved in getting it right.

We can help find, assess and buy the right business.
If selling your business is important to you – and the good reasons are usually both personal and financial – then it’s straight forward. You need to plan well.
