Are you going to select a business to buy based on it's profits or its match to your likening? This is not a easy decision sometimes. Will you be happy making money but hate your job? In most cases, I think you may know the answer. Happy people tend to be more successful people.
Small business is no different. If you do what you like ...you most likely will want to do it everyday of your life. Money allows you to do the things that you want to do but if a majority of your time is spent doing what you don't like ...hummm...maybe not so much.
Take the time to really seek out your feelings about what you are about to do when you buy a business. ....Like it ...run it ... have fun...and thrive. Its' the American Way!
