This is a page from my book, “How I Sold My Business: A Personal Diary”
Time has flown by, and we're coming up to the end of our two-year sales agreement with Marty, our business broker. In retrospect I can see why he wanted two years. There aren't many prospects to buy a business, and so far they've all fallen through.
Marty says he has two more potential business buyers, so he's requested a short extension to his listing agreement. The partners and I have discussed it briefly in an email stream, but I've been too busy with a current project to give it much thought yet. I told Marty I wouldn't be able to get back to him with an answer for a few days.
