“My grandfather had the entrepreneurial drive to own many businesses, build them up, sell them and find another. He worked hard, took risks, kept his integrity, supported his family in a fine way, and was involved in the community. His reputation was impeccable. I think my mother was drawn to my father for these same qualities. I grew up hearing about and watching the entrepreneurial spirit. I inherited that spirit. My financial training and experience allow me to analyze the risks. I am naturally inclined to share what I have learned. I love business and business owners. I understand the personal equity of love, work, time and investment poured into your business. I love to help business owners sell and transition their business to a new owner, and to help those who are looking to acquire a business. You need a trained and qualified professional on your side. Someone who is well rounded in business matters to be your Business Intermediary.”……Lyn O’Neal, MBA
