Know the Road to Business Ownership Before Starting Out

Inside Business | By Frank Chebalo

 

Making the transition to business ownership can be daunting, especially if your options are unclear.

 

Think of business ownership as a destination on a map with multiple routes ultimately leading to the same end location, but all differing in accessibility, arrival time, cost and other factors.

 

Below are several pathways for aspiring entrepreneurs to consider before embarking on their journeys.

 

Start your own

 

Starting one from scratch is typically the first – or only – option people picture when they think of business ownership. Starting your own business has a variety of benefits – including having the ability to oversee all decisions made and steer the company’s direction.

 

It’s no question the freedom and responsibility of launching a business is attractive. However, it’s also important to be mindful of the statistics when it comes to launching a startup. With only a 15 percent success rate, risk assessment is necessary, but if done correctly, and with proper assistance, starting a business has the potential to be a rewarding route.

 

Buy into a franchise

 

Researching alternative options is a necessary step in the decision-making process, and if the risk of starting your own business seems too high, franchising is worth looking into. On this path, you buy into a model so it’s essential to do your due diligence to find a reliable and supportive franchiser.

 

When franchising with a reputable brand, the success rate increases to 90 percent. A credible model can offer systems and processes to help with the opening of a business including marketing programs, training, staffing assistance.

 

While franchising is sometimes criticized for lack of freedom or creative control, many in favor of franchising argue that the success rate is reason alone to buy into a model within an industry that interests you and that as an owner, you still have control over many aspects of your business.

 

Acquire a business

 

Buying a company is another option to consider. If inexperienced, you may want to consult a business broker who can provide knowledgeable insight on price values for the current market and ultimately weed out the opportunities that aren’t worth investing in.

 

Existing businesses already have an established track record of cash flow, as well as marketing plans and procedures that are in place. Oftentimes, these businesses have an established clientele and loyal employees as well, but can come at a greater cost to the buyer.

Murphy Business & Financial Opens S.D. Office

San Diego Business Journal | September 2016 | By Steve Adamek

 

Murphy Business & Financial Corp. LLC, a full-service business brokerage firm with more than 180 offices in the U.S. and Canada, recently announced the opening of a new office in Del Mar serving San Diego and surrounding communities in Southern California.

 

The B2B firm offers a full range of services and support to local business owners seeking professional brokerage counsel.

 

According to Murphy, Justin McIntosh opened the local Murphy Business office to provide comprehensive business brokerage services. The new San Diego Murphy Business office will support entrepreneurs with the sale of their businesses, purchases, valuations and mergers and acquisitions.

 

“There is a high demand for business brokerage services all throughout the San Diego area,” said McIntosh. “I look forward to meeting that demand by being a trusted partner to Southern California business owners and interested buyers.”

 

The company said that prior to his work with Murphy Business, McIntosh cofounded a successful utility business based out of Colorado that grew from four employees to more than 300 employees spanning across three states. McIntosh continued to develop this company for several years before deciding to sell. The sale allowed him the opportunity to hone his entrepreneurial skills in California. He most recently purchased a boutique-clothing store where he began to draw many parallels between brokerage services and experiences with business ownership and acquisitions.

 

McIntosh says he sees an increase in demand for business brokerage services — a growing pool of qualified buyers is emerging as unemployment continues at its current rate and instability within corporate environments remains the norm. McIntosh says he has seen an increase nationally, as well as locally, over the last 12 months of businesses being sold and at high prices — the industry expects that upward trend to continue through 2016.
