Read my review of Attorney Fred S. Steingold’s “The Complete Guide to Buying a Business”—maybe a little too complete from the legal point of view, but an excellent beginners’ starting point all the same.
Last week I had the privilege of being able to ask Doug Richard (a former Dragon of Dragon’s Den) a couple of questions at the end of a ‘master class’ which he hosted. And, boy, did I screw up. Big Time.
Presented as a quest, this comprehensive guide to buying websites leads the reader through a series of challenges on the journey to claim the prize—to successfully buy a website without losing an arm and a leg on the way.
People often ask me how they can get started in online business. This isn’t usually a question I can easily answer, because most of the time I don’t know anything about them. Choosing the right path to success for them will depend on many things, such as their personality traits, strengths, interests and many more unique personal qualities which only they fully understand about themselves.
That said, I try to give them some pointers about what they might like to do and how they might go about achieving it.

It sometimes seems when I’m writing about online business that I need a shovel to do my research, not a computer and an Internet connection.
As some of you will know, I’m currently writing a book about buying websites. It’s long since ceased to amaze me how much bullshit is spouted about how easy it is to build up a successful business online, but it still manages to raise a jaundiced chuckle now and then.
These days getting an education doesn’t have to be expensive. There are countless free courses which you can do online, in your own time and in the comfort of your own home. I already posted last year about some fantastic free university courses from Coursera.
