A Broker’s Perspective on Selling TrollingMotors.net

The sale of a business can be a fickle mistress. Thomas Smale of FE International is a business broker who knows this all too well. He specializes in selling high ticket online property stores, as well as other properties. Thomas offered some extremely valuable advice to me during the process of selling TrollingMotors.net.

On this week’s episode, we’ll dive in to the first of a two-part series to wrap up the TrollingMotors.net auction case study. I’ve invited Thomas on to the show to share some of that insight and advice with you.
