New No-Nonsense Guide Is a Small Business for You? Published by Outskirts Press

Alfred Babich walks readers through the detailed steps they need to take to intelligently and confidently finance, buy and run a small business by showing them how to evaluate both the business and their own abilities to run it successfully.

Lebanon, TN, April 21, 2012 --( Author, senior commercial banker and business broker Alfred Babich announced today the release of Is a Small Business for You? What It Takes to Evaluate, Buy, Finance and Run a Small Business, published by Outskirts Press. Babich uses his forty years of experience working with hundreds of small businesses and their owners to provide a multitude of constructive, informative and entertaining tips on getting into business for oneself.

Babich has seen too many people find out the hard way – in some cases, after losing their life savings – that owning and running a business is not for them. His new guide provides the exact steps not only to evaluate a business, but, more importantly, to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the potential buyers before they end up making a mess of things.

Is a Small Business for You? shows what aspects of a business really give it value and what numbers to ask for to correctly estimate its potential. Simple forms are given to fill out in order to come up with a specific dollar value for any business, and the author also goes over all the variables to consider when real estate is involved with the purchase.

Babich cites informative small business resources and goes over simply, but in detail, the forms of business financing available today. He teaches readers how to write an effective business plan beforehand, how to approach management through the ownership transition period, what constitutes due diligence, and when to hire and what to expect from professionals in the field.

While geared towards potential business buyers, Babich’s handbook will be a valuable resource for sellers, as well. A potential business seller will be better able to evaluate a sale price for his business and better able to understand what aspects of his business to focus on and promote in order to make it more saleable.

Is a Small Business for You? is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
