I am currently searching on my own for a business to buy. I have considered other options such as traditional search, but my understanding (probably wrong) is that you have to have an elite MBA background. This is not the case for me. I have an MBA from Temple University Japan, a Master's in Geriatrics, and a doctorate in community organizing. I have operated organizations from###-###-#### people. I am searching in a number of industries and primarily focused on health care such as non-medical home care, hospice, ALF. I operated a care management practice and have started a home care business. I am even considering just creating relationships off-market that will payoff in the future when they are ready to sell. Is there a best route in this situation? Would I be a suitable candidate for traditional search if I chose to go in that direction? Thanks in advance!
