Businesses owned and operated by a single person and the associated risk doesn't get much attention.

I've seen it a few times, mainly with home service based businesses where work can be subbed or contracted out.

Curious if anyone has experience - good or bad here.

This presents a whole host of unique challenges. Any specifics you'd recommend looking out for in DD?

Updating: Thanks for the concern. This is a very real situation where I'm looking at a one man GC that subs out work on roofing, siding, gutters, and windows. He's doing half a mil SDE regularly by himself. Scaling this business with more staff and expanding geo is an attractive prospect. But this is definitely the career sales leader in me speaking...
