Meet Nelson Bayford:
How would you describe what a business broker does?
A business broker guides the sellers through a process of establishing a “fair market value” for the business; connecting the business for sale to qualified buyers in a confidential manner; and facilitating a successful transaction between seller and buyer.
What’s been your favorite experience in the industry?
My favourite experience is having control over my income and time, allowing me to establish a good balance between work and personal life.
Who inspires you?
What’s a defining moment in your life?
On August 31, 1971, I attended a Concept Therapy course, where I first recognized that “I become what I think about all day long” and that I have full control and choice over what thoughts I think.
What’s an important piece of advice you give to business owners?
Anticipate and prepare for the sale of your business with the thought in mind that the true value of your business is based on the profitability and the ROI for the buyer.
Do you have a favourite quote?
“Nothing should be prized more highly than the value of each day”
What’s the best way for people to connect with you?
Telepathically? Ha! Ok then, by email.
