"If you're thinking about buying or selling a business, I encourage you to spend a little time reading this diary. For less than the price of a cup of coffee, and just a few hours of reading time, you can learn some valuable lessons about what the author did right, and more importantly, what he did wrong."

Alvin Alexander founded a computer consulting business in the basement of his home in the 1990s, grew it into a very successful twenty-person business, and then sold it ten years later. During the process of trying to sell his small business, he wrote many small notes before and after meetings, and those notes eventually became a diary of everything he went through.

After the sale was completed, he published a portion of that diary on his website, The website quickly grew popular, with many comments like, “Thank you!”, “You helped me make money”, and “Please share more information.” After all that encouragement the book is finally here, including (a) an all-new “Lessons Learned” chapter, and (b) additional chapters on the five years that have passed since he sold his company.

If you're thinking, “Should I sell my small business?”, or “How can I sell my company?”, this book is for you. It shares the “behind the scenes” secrets of the process of selling a business that you won’t find anywhere else. Because of everything that happened during the sales process, the book will probably also be very helpful for people interested in buying a business, and people who are partners in a business, such as LLC business partners.

In the end, this book is an investment. Think of it this way: How much money would you be willing to spend to make thousands of additional dollars when you sell your business? If just one tip from this book makes you only a thousand dollars, it will still be one of the best investments you ever made.

HASH(0x8c249b10) von 5 Sternen Programmers Can't Write - But THIS Guy Can, Anyway! 18. März 2012
Von Steve Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I wasn't expecting much from this book. Programmers are notoriously bad at documentation, and this was presented as a diary. C'mon! Diarists are typically so self-involved that they are hard to read, Anne Frank being a notable exception.

But maybe that gives a clue as to why this diary WORKS. The author is burned out, working 60+ hours a week, and he has sold big chunks of his company to employees. He ends up listing the company with a business broker for a couple of years, and then a couple of extensions, his wife (who he works with) and he separate, and yet he describes their relationship as better than the one he has with one of his co-owners. Emily Litella used to whine, "If it's not one thing, it's another" but in this case, if it's not one thing, it's two. And yet the author is upbeat while I am exceriencing vicarious frustration over everything that's happening. And at this point, we're only 40% through the book. What else can happen?

I don't want to spoil things by saying more about the rest of the book. I will say that I chose to read this while watching the NCAA "March Madness", figuring to read during the commercials, and watching the game, and I miscalculated - I kept on reading when the commercials ended, the book being more compelling than what were fairly exciting games. (When I realized what was happening, I clicked the TiVO to record the games.) Booking on business aren't supposed to be this interesting; you're supposed to get suspense and drama from a Robert Parker novel! And the suspense is even more surprising when the title of the book says he ended up selling the business.

You don't have to be particularly interested in business to enjoy this book - and if, like me, you've sold more than one business, you'll enjoy it even more. Make yourself a BIG bowl of popcorn, and fill an ice chest with ice and your favorite beverage, setting them both next to your favorite chair; you won't want to make any trips to the kitchen while devouring this book.

HASH(0x8c249d5c) von 5 Sternen I'm sold on this 4. August 2013
Von Adam M. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is a good read :-) The diary is entertaining as one might expect reading a diary, yet also contains experiences and steps to help or remind almost anyone in a similar situation of selling their business. Even if your not looking to sell a business, it useful to read for those
who know other's owning a business, and all that they have to keep in mind. An enjoyable book. So if you made it this far to read a comment on it, then buy the book you will be glad you did.
HASH(0x8c249d20) von 5 Sternen Great Read! 19. Oktober 2012
Von kevinpascal - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I am a business owner and found the author's experience to ring true with my own. I laughed and felt sad with the author as he experienced pleasure and pain in the process of selling his business. I learnt from him and hope I would not be making the same mistakes he did. But, I wish the author would have done some things better had he found the mentor like Alex did in the book Built to Sell. I don't agree on some of the decisions he took. Still its an invaluable resource especially for a consulting or services business owner.

Some other insightful information in the book I found was related to how the author had structured his consulting company.

Format: Taschenbuch
This book did shed some light on what to expect when working with a business broker, but I was disappointed to find out that the sale ended up being an employee purchase. I was hoping that Marty was going to pull through in the end!

The author also illustrates the perils of having your wife working in your business. There is also a well documented meltdown of what happens when you don't allow a work/life balance while operating a small business.
HASH(0x8c256534) von 5 Sternen Not a 'standard' sold my business book 29. November 2015
Von Johnny Storm - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
The first part of the book is interesting, describing the various pitfalls and ups and down with selling a business.

The second part is almost Shakespearian in the amount of drama and back fighting that concludes with the author and his business partners.

I'm not sure if I liked this book, but it definitely caused me to strongly considered who I partner with in business.
