Hello and Welcome

I believe many more people would be successful at buying or selling a business if they only took the time to educate themselves on the process – if they only had access to a comprehensive course that showed them exactly what they needed to do.

It’s the reason I created a library of free resources specific to buying and selling a business. It’s the reason I created two comprehensive courses:

  • The 8 Elements Approach To Buying A Business, and
  • The 8 Elements Approach To Selling A Business.

My name is Matthew Buxton and I’m passionate about teaching people how to buy and sell businesses.

– Online Courses – Expert Advice –

Specific to buying a business and selling a business, small to medium-sized businesses, in Canada.

What My Clients Are Saying

Don’t just take it from me, let my clients do the talking!

I really enjoyed the Personal Preparation section in the Book. It excites me because it starts to introduce ideas and concepts that I had not previously considered when thinking about the business buying process, the complexity of the process starts to become apparent.

I am eager to continue on with the course as I feel there is opportunity to learn something new.

Great job putting this very exhaustive course and content together. It has been very educational and extremely helpful to me.

Your subject matter expertise definitely shines through.

Frequently Asked Questions

This information is specific to any small business or medium-sized business in Canada. Privately owned businesses and franchises whose revenues are typically between $100,000 to $8,000,000.

Any type of business be it: Business2Business (B2B), Professional Services, Construction, Manufacturing, Transportation, Oil & Gas, Automotive, Health & Wellness, Wholesale and Retail based businesses, Restaurants no name just a few. I have experience in all of the aforementioned.

Why did you create these courses?

I love to help people and I love to see people succeed. I have started and owned a number of different businesses. Today I have more than a decade of experience as a “hand’s-on” business broker. I’ve been through the business buying and selling process hundreds of times.

I want to share all this experience with individuals and couples who dream of buying a business. I want to share all this experience with business owners who are ready to have a comfortable retirement.

I don’t believe in smoke and mirrors and I hate to hear of people fall victim to a “shyster” – someone all to willing to take advantage of others for their own personal and financial gain.

These are just a few of the reasons why I created these comprehensive courses specific to buying and selling a business.

Buy a business or sell a business, how difficult can it really be?

Be it buying a business or selling a business – the process is complex. Aside from the buyer(s) and seller(s) there will be their wants, needs and emotions. There is the subject business to consider – a living breathing, ever changing entity. There will typically be a lender and a landlord involved. There should also be an experienced lawyer for the buyer and for the seller involved. Add to this mix misinformation and dishonest / inexperienced representatives and you have a recipe for a very complex process.
