"It is with great pleasure and relief that I can say that we have completed the acquisition of Beech Builders. The process was an immense experience, and your book and active support has made a real contribution on all the different stages of the process. We are particularly pleased that we could manage to bring the deal in within in 10 weeks, from the day that we saw the advert, to completion. Thanks for your support."

"The material is invaluable."
Peter Washington- Maidstone, Kent, United Kingdom
“I would like to thank you on an outstanding guide on how to buy a business. It has filled me with confidence.”
Peter Irlam – United Kingdom
"I bought your online UK guide on Friday, and have read most of it already. It is an encyclopedia of knowledge and I am learning shed loads -and not a moment too soon!I am quite far into the process of buying a business, and I have found that on the whole I seem to have instinctively followed a route not far from that suggested in your guide. Many thanks and once again I would like to say that, as you rightly predicted, the best money I have spent for a long time."
Phil Howling - Kingsbridge, Devon – United Kingdom
"I've just completed the purchase of an established business with a 30-year history, now retiring its second owner. Your guide was perfect in helping me select this business, especially in assessing its value. Thanks again for your personal attention to my purchase and pursuits."
Gil Takemori- San Jose, CA
I am pleased to say that in the next 7-10 days we will be closing a deal to purchase a sporting goods and custom apparel business in Medway, MA, which is 8 miles from our home. Your training course was a huge help and I highly recommend it anyone who is serious about buying a business. Knowing that there is a real person behind the materials who actually makes contact with you to assist is very reassuring in a time of great uncertainty. Even though I had done several acquisitions for companies I worked for, there is something special about buying something that will belong to your family! Please feel free to use my comments in your marketing materials.
Tom Sager - Hopkinton, MA
"Just a note to tell you that I have purchased a business and am in the process of completing the transaction. Thanks again for the great course."
John Buso - Watertown, CT
"I wanted to thank you again for your advice and let you know how invaluable your course was to me."
Barrett Schultz- Chicago, IL
"The most complete program on buying a business that I have ever read."
Peter Shea- Chairman and CEO
"This product is fantastic. I love the way you get to the point. I found your section on accounting particularly interesting and useful. Your way of getting to the 'meat' is remarkable."
Burt Walker- Vine Grove, KY
"I am an Arthur Andersen audit partner and given current events with our firm, my plan is to buy a business to "be in control of my own destiny". By way of background, I have completed acquisition due diligence for approximately 15 acquisitions over my 22 year career and would consider myself pretty good at it. Given my current desire to buy my own business, I thought I would find out what others had to say on the topic. I purchased a book on buying a business from the bookstore, read it in a couple of days and found it somewhat useful. I think the cost of that book was about $10. I had previously identified your book on the internet, but wasn't sure it was worth the download price versus the book store price of other similar books. After looking through the table of contents I decided to download it. That was Friday and this is Sunday afternoon. I just completed the material. While I would consider myself a well informed individual on acquisitions, I found your book very insightful and practical. I clearly got way more than the purchase price value in practical ideas. Great job! Ths is a very valuable service, even for an expert."
Ross Baldwin- Poway, CA
"This is an absolutely superb resource for every prospective business buyer."
Russell Brown - President, Business Book Press
Leading expert and lecturer on small business valuations
"After twenty years in the corporate world I found myself unemployed. I was so afraid of making an expensive financial error at this stage in my life. I decided to follow your program and in less than five months I purchased an incredible business that has given me a new lease on life, it's doing great and I've never been happier."
Frank L. Williams- Sydney, Australia
"I devoured your course in a day and a half. I have evaluated businesses for a number of years; I have an MBA and took courses in finding and managing a small business; but yours is the most complete set of materials I have seen."
Clint Farrell - Briarcliff Manor, NY
"The course gave me the essential information I was looking for, especially as to questions to ask when meeting the owner of a business I wanted to buy. I am now in the process of acquiring this business and will certainly recommend your course to anyone who wants to buy a business. Well done!"
Gary Franklin - Port Richmond, CA
"I found your course to be the best money I have spent. I am searching for a business and am using your material to guide me through the process. Your 10 commandments are a useful tool to help evaluate each business. Your after sales support is outstanding and a complete surprise. I assumed if I send in a question it would take days to get an answer-not hours. I’m sure what I have learned and continue to learn from the course will help me make a more informed decision when I purchase a company."
Bill Kirch - Chicago, IL
"I visited your website three times before deciding to buy your download program. I am a research nut and I read about five books on the subject yet I still spent 14 months looking before reading your material. I can't believe how simple your system was to follow. Now that I think about it where were you when I began this process? Best of all, within 90 days of receiving the course, I found, negotiated for and bought a great business and using your techniques I saved a bundle in the process. Thank you for everything."
Denis Simpson- Brookline, MA
"Selecting the right business, in the right industry at the right time is a critical starting point if you are going to be successful. How To Buy A Good Business At A Great Price will help you do just that."
Brian Sher - Author of "What Rich People Know & Desperately Want to Keep Secret"
"As you assisted me in my project to acquire a business, I feel that I should give you some feedback. I completed the purchase of a franchise resale December 3, 2001. I would like to thank you for the useful advice and information you provided me and to wish you well for 2002."
Bryan Richards - Irvine, CA
"I've worked through two-thirds of your course and I have to say that this is the most comprehensive business buying course in existence! I'm thoroughly impressed by the content (and context) and would gladly recommend it to any and all potential biz buyers."
Brian L. Shawver - Bend, OR
"I found your web site last week and purchased your book today. I have been looking for this kind of information for the last four years and must say this is a truly a God send."
Steve Jones - Keystone Heights, FL
"In my 20 years of self-employment, I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on seminars, books and tapes. I have learned more from your course than I have from all of those previous courses combined. Your simple, step-by-step, common sense approach makes it, not only the most comprehensive course on business purchasing, but also the easiest to apply."
Cody Francis - Las Vegas, NV
"Thank you for the most amazing business course/purchasing guide I have ever come across. It was an answer to my prayers. I was confident that I could and should buy a business but I had no idea where to start, or how to plan. Your course kept me on track and focused and the personal advice that you provided me with was priceless. It took me just three months to buy the right business and I know it's right because we've had two record sales months in the four months I've now owned it. All I can say is this is a must read for anyone who wishes to buy a business, no matter their level of experience. I will be forever grateful to you."
Richard Strauch - Scranton, PA
"This program is exactly what I needed. I am currently looking to purchase an existing business (first timer) and have been disorganized and haphazard. I wish they taught something like this in college. It seems all the skills they teach in universities are only useful when working for companies. This product is certainly value-added."
Henry Wang- Doraville, GA
"The best financial decision I've ever made was going into business for myself. The smartest thing that I did along the way was buying your course. There's no way I could have negotiated such an incredible deal without it. Thank you for the great information."
Stephen Sinclair- Tulsa, OK
"I am a retired auditor with 30+ years of experience and an additional 15 years of concurrent experience in retail. My wife has 10 years experience in the Hospitality and Travel Industry with 10 years of concurrent experience in retail. We are presently in the process of purchasing a retail gift shop for my wife that specializes in high quality unique items. My wife and I bought two books. One at Barnes and Noble titled "So You Want To Own The Store" by Brown and Tilling; the other, your program. While the first book was helpful, we both found it lacking in the necessary information to make our decision. Yours however proved to be invaluable. We liked the detailed examples, formulas, and forms. The "Here's What You Need To Know" and "Required Materials" sections proved to be the most valuable part of the book. We would recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn about starting and/or buying a business."
Fred Watson - Pitman, NJ
"I found your course to be an excellent resource and some of the wisest money I have spent."
Drew Fleming - Evans, GA
"I’ve spent 28 years in financial services, most recently as the head of The CIT Group’s US Retail Finance division and formerly as Senior Vice President and Eastern US Manager of KeyBank USA NA. I’m at least smart enough to realize, however, that my background does not make me an expert in the acquisition of “a good business at a great price", as you put it. The time you spent walking me through the Letter of Intent alone was worth the price of the course. Now brokers are calling me with their prime listings before they even hit the market. It's just great!"
Rob Lewis- Cincinnati, OH
"Your after sales support has been terrific and I must say that having the ability to get your ongoing expert advice has truly helped me through this process. You have really delivered great value."
Robert Cori- Scotts Valley, CA
"Four months ago I was an unhappy employee and today I am the owner of a good business that I am making great right now! Thank you so much for helping me through it."
Susan Weinstein - Montreal, Canada
"You won't believe it but I got the ultimate compliment at the deal closing last week: the seller called me a "shark". I figured you'd love to hear that. Thanks for everything and I'll be in touch."
Henry Segal- Austin, TX
"The key to making good decisions in life is education. There has always been a void in effective buyer educational tools until the course How To Buy A Good Business At A Great Price came along."
Andrew Cagnetta- President - Transworld Business Brokers
Past President- Florida Business Brokers Association
"I finally did it. Nobody believed me when I told them I was going to buy a business. There is no longer any doubt as I closed on the deal last week. I now know that there are only two things required to buy a business: the desire to do it and the intelligence to follow your advice."
Ryan Galvin- Los Angeles, CA
"I want to compliment you on the course "How To Buy A Good Business At A Great Price". I have developed training materials over the course of time, and I know how difficult it is to keep the information factual and appealing. The money spent on this course is the best investment I have made in many a year."
Carol Weinreich- Placerville, CA
"Your course is superb. My only regret is that I had not run across this resource earlier, prior to my last business."
Jeff Boaz- San Diego, CA
"I wanted to tell you how useful my clients have found your material. I cannot believe some of the creative ways they have learned to buy businesses that they could not have done without your information. As a business broker the biggest challenge I face is dealing with uneducated buyers. Your information has changed all of that and has really helped me and my clients. I will surely continue to recommend it to every one of them."
Lorenzo Rodriguez- LMR Brokerage
David Fairley - President - WebsiteProperties - Yelm, WA - websiteproperties.com - "I found the depth of knowledge, the resources and sound advice in Diomo’s course to be invaluable. This is a must have buyer's bible for anyone contemplating purchasing a business."
