Registration: $35.00

Have you always dreamt about owning a small business but didn’t want to build one from scratch? For individuals with business skills and a desire to make a meaningful impact, buying and growing an established business can be a safer option than starting a new company around an unproven product or service. Business acquisition is easier than ever before, but you need to know the rules of the game.

For this virtual panel discussion, we’ve pulled together some of the nation’s top small business experts to share insights on how to position yourself to acquire a business, how to create a business that won’t trap you when it comes time to sell it and everything else you need to know.

Panelists Include:

John Warrillow, best-selling author and founder, The Value Builder System™
Mike Pearson, business broker, senior advisor, Econsult Solutions, Inc.
Alix James, CEO, Nielsen-Kellerman Company
Joseph Zimring, CEO, Rolling Rock Building Stone, Inc.


Melinda Emerson, “SmallBizLady,” EMBA ’20
