At present, Harbour helps entrepreneurs with real tactics for buying, fixing, and selling businesses. After many years of mergers & acquisitions in sales and marketing, here are the lessons Harbour has learned:
1. The importance of buying a business to grow a business.
2. Everyone says “first start a business, then work really hard at it.” You don’t make money running businesses. Your best customer will buy it from you. So, build it to sell.
3. Buy businesses for nothing and then sell them.
4. Being a business owner you need to be strategic and start having higher-level conversations.
