Watch the Video above to learn more about Business Buyer Adventure
The Adventure program helps prospective business buyers prepare themselves and holds people accountable to the actions that they will take to realize their dream of buying a small business.
Within the program, new users will catch up by going through a 11 module self-preparation program.
DealMaker members get to take advantage of a monthly accountability call with me.
When deals are found, members can have them reviewed with David Barnett and this will be shared with the other members.
Members have the opportunity to interact with each other in the group's private FaceBook group.
Special guest speakers come each month to share added value to the group and speak about topics relating to business transactions, transition or SME management skills that will be important to new owners.
If you're motivated and need help to find the perfect business to buy, Business Buyer Adventure is for you.
Explorer Membership gives you access to the group calls, the member spotlight calls, expert calls and the private FaceBook group.
Deal-maker Members get a monthly call with me to track their progress and get some one-on-one feedback (see video above)
Tycoon Members get 10 hour-long calls over the course of the quarter.

What others are saying...
This is a great group to be part of. Members have a wide range of experiences, all smart people with rich business backgrounds, what makes the group interactions always very helpful.
Dave has the ability to quickly see through the fog which are the most relevant issues and he quickly points people in the right direction.
I’ve been in multiple group interactions during the calls and in the Facebook group.
Participating in the Adventure Group accelerates the understanding of what truly works in acquiring a small business, how to interact with brokers, how to approach buyers, what to watch for. It’s a great way to leverage a collective knowledge.
I haven’t bought my business yet. Being in the group likely already helped me avoid buying something I shouldn’t have bought and helped me better define what is a good fit for me.
I’m staying in the group for the foreseeable future and highly recommend people to join, if they are serious about buying a business.

“I’ve been a member over a year, in addition to in depth education, there is a valuable osmosis component hearing a variety of live scenarios, I’d recommend this group to those highly focused as well as those just getting started”.

Happy three year anniversary! I took the Advantage program and I am just getting started with the Adventure program. I really love the thoroughness and the data-driven, level headed approach Dave takes to buying a business. In an acquisition with both significant potential but also large downside risk. I think that I will be well prepared to make the right decision and limit my downside. Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the program, it was very interesting. We didn't end up buying a business, but at least four times we have avoided bad deals offered by brokers or sellers.
Actually the very first business we saw was exciting enough to make a deal, luckily we already knew the concept of subsidizing a business with free hours by the owners, and realized it was a death trap.
So we think at least in this sense it was time and money well spent.

Even though I didn't buy a business, I found the adventure group to be very educational and supportive.
It was very helpful to hear other business buyer's real-lfie examples of the problems they were encountering during the search and acquisition process, and the potential solutions you advised.
How the group helped me:
- The numerous ways to negotiate and structure deals
- Different levels of motivated sellers
- Most small business owners want $1M for their business just to buy their dream home
- Deal flow is key
- To continue to follow up even after your offer has been turned down. You never know what the seller will be going through in the future
- Make multiple offers. Examples include seller financing, cash on closing but low price, contingent on future performance.

"David has the knowledge and experience to help anyone find the freedom and fulfillment of taking ownership of their life. The adventure group is similar goaled individuals looking to buy a business. We were able to talk through real life deals several times a month. The exchange helps you draw from others on something that is not well known to many people. It help me personally think through deals, do the work to model the opportunities and discuss best negotiation practices. If you're on the fence, leap off and sign up."

On Average, the group has 20-25 members. As of August 2021, 10 businesses have been bought by members in the group.
