Frequently Asked Questions

Why "...8 Elements..."?

“8 Elements” refers to the fact that there are 8 elements of a business that can positively or negatively effect value. There are 8 elements of a business that can effect your chances of buying that business and that can effect your future success. Financial statements are just one of these 8 elements and the problem is many people, including accountants, only focus on reviewing the financial statements as a means of determining the value of a business opportunity.
