  1. With regards to your quote “The majority of potential buyers aren’t qualified”, the statement is accurate for only 1/2 of the pie. If you look at investors, they are overly qualified the the lack of sophistication on behalf of the seller can be the issue. When you look at existing business owners or newbies entering the small business world through potential acquisition, I fully agree that most are under-qualified both to run the business as well as to properly go about the acquisition process.
