Attention Business brokers?

I am a Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraiser and I do many appraisals for Biz Brokers.

I am thinking of offering that service as well. I know it's tough to do but, it's also rewarding, like Mr. Trump says "if it's easy it's most likely not very profitable".

Can anyone offer any advice about the profession ?

American Business Brokers Assoc. has a really god training that I am thinking of attending.

    I would advise you to have 3-5 years of income avilable to yourself or another means of generating income. It takes a very long time to establish your business.

    Your best bet is to work with an establish broker, to learn the business for that 3-5 year span.

    Also it will help your income potential if you obtain your real estate license. It will allow you to handle sales of businesses that include property. There is no reason to turn opportunities for income.
