HW There are many special terms in the word of business and the following story is about a sweet heart deal which I made last week. I made the deal with a friend and we both made profit. I have started a small comany sevral years ago, I worked hard to make it successful. It was a sign making business. It was small company not a blue shape company. It was not known nationally for the quality of its size. It did not make millions of dollors in profits and it was private. It was not a public company with shares treated on the stock market. Still I worked hard building up my business. I did not work only a few hours each day no bankers hours for me instead I spend many hours each day seven days a week try to grow the company. I never cut corners or try to save on expenses, I made many cold calls, I called on possible vires from a list of people I had never seen. Such calls were often hurt selves, I had to be very firm. Sometimes, I sold my signs at a lose I didn't make money on my product. When this happened, there were cutbacks, I had to use fewer supplies and reduce the number of works, but after sevral years, the company broke even, profits were equal to extensies. And soon after, I began to gain ground, my size was selling very quickly, they were selling like hotcakes. I was happy the company was moving forward, and making real progress, it was in the black, not in the red. The company was making money, not losing it. A friend knew about my buiness, he is a leader in a sign making industry, a real big gun if you know what I mean. He offered to buy my company, my friend wanted to take it public, he wanted to sell shares in the company to the general public. My friend believed it was the best to strite where the air is hot, he wanted to take action at the best time possible and not wait. He offered me above part estimate after the amout he would pay to buy my company. But I knew he is uneducated guess was low my company was worth much more, he ask his being bean-counter to crunch the numbers. That is he asked his accountant to take a close look at the finances of my comany and decide how much it was worth. Then my friend increased his offer. My friends increased his official offer and finally given to me in black and white. It was written on paper and more than I ever dreamed. I was finally able to get a break and make a huge profit on my company. And my friend also got a bank from a buck he got a succsessful business for the money he spent.
