About 6 months ago I joined an on demand food startup as COO. After about 30 days I realized that the team wasn’t a fit, so I left. I had no plan and no idea what to do next. I know I didn’t want to work for a large company but other than that, I had no real direction. So I asked myself a fundamental question. What do I want my life to look like? So simple.
I want to live where I want, travel around, and be able to have enough money to do so. Sounds easy enough, right? LOL. I started to think through what I could do to make this happen. The list actually was quite short. I could be a consultant or have a business on the internet.
I already had been a consultant and didn’t want to travel for business that much, so that left one choice; run an internet business.
I didn’t want to start a business from scratch again, so that left buying one. Are small internet businesses even for sale?
The short answer is yes. The long answer is there are a lot of bad ones out there.
Thankfully, after a few weeks, I figured out which brokers had the good sites and which ones had some ones that shall we say were “less good”
Here is a list of a few ones that I look at every few days and / or have alerts set up.
- Quiet Light Brokerage
- Acquisitions Direct
- Acquisition Station
- FEI International
- Biz Buy Sell
- Website Closers
Once I discovered these websites, my journey began.
