So You Want to Buy a Small Business

Front Cover
Author House, Mar 11, 2011 - Business & Economics - 132 pages
Small business ownership is, in my opinion, the very foundation of the American experience. Liberty and freedom are both the results and causes of capitalism. Without them both working congruently, it would be impossible for our nation and her citizens to survive through the choppy waters of ever-changing economic times. I hope this book will help you on your path towards small business owership and life choices.
