The Transworld Buying Process: Eight Steps to Entrepreneurship
1. Take Charge
Congratulations on selecting Transworld to start your entrepreneurship journey off right. By being proactive and purchasing a company, you’ve made the first step in securing your financial future for years to come. Now, the process can truly begin, and we can help you find a business that fits your personal preferences.
We always recommend meeting your Transworld advisor in person first, but if that’s not possible at the moment, not a problem. Other options include communication via email or phone. Either way, the point of this meeting is to gather detailed information about your personal life goals, your current skill set, and how much financial backing you already have. We need this information to find the best business to fit your needs. Once we’re done with this phase, we’ll search through our vast market of resources and information to discover the right company for you!
You will never be left in the dark in getting the information you need before purchasing your company. Our advisors will keep you in the loop about what’s currently happening in the industry as well as anything that could impact the purchase. With our help, you will begin to understand the fundamentals of valuation, read Business Listing information sheets, filling out online forms, and see what kinds of opportunities are available in general.
We’ll get you set up with a seller meeting and appointment. This is where all our hard work starts paying off. In this phase, we also get you all the information you need before meeting with your seller. It’s the perfect time to see if there are other opportunities available before you make the final purchase and sign all the agreements necessary. It’s okay if your search continues during this phase. If you’re unsatisfied with the opportunities you’ve found, we can always revisit the third Education step.
