The Illustration above shows assets of the people interested in buying a business. Since most of them could afford the tire shop that has a value of $10,000, it could be sold in just a matter of time. Tire shoppe on the right is more profitable since it has more equipment, it can accomplish a task faster than tire shop 1 resulting in a much bigger customer base, your only problem is it is worth a lot more than tire shop 1. But what if you could own tire shoppe (to the right) for just $10,000? wouldn't it be nice? All we got to do is pitch in some money as a group and we would own a portion of that business, putting in more money gives you a bigger share of the business and gain considerable control of it!
