Hey Everyone,

First off, want to say what a great resource Searchfunder has been. Shout out to ^Searchfunder member‌ and team for building this supportive community.

Posting today seeking some advice. My long term goal has always been to own and operate my own SMB. After hearing about the ETA model a few months ago, I felt like this was my opportunity to achieve that goal. However, at this current point in my life (moving, starting a family, career transition), I'm brought back down to earth that this may not be the right time.

Instead, I've been thinking about an approach where I can work for/in the business for ~2-3 years with a future agreement to acquire.

Curious if anyone has structured an agreement like this in the past? If so, what was the experience like? Pros and cons of structuring a deal like this?

Any thoughts would be much appreciated!

- James
