  • Evaluate the business model of the selected business.
  • Assess the necessity for training to be provided to you by the seller.
  • Identify all of the issues you should investigate in the process of performing a feasibility analysis and due diligence.
  • Identify the areas in purchasing the business that you would try to negotiate with the seller.
  • Explain the advantages and disadvantages associated with purchasing the business you selected rather than starting a new business in the same industry.

Format your report consistent with APA guidelines 

Use at least three academic references that show research.
