Buzz Harris: Buyers and sellers have many considerations of one another (voices)

Recently, I wrote about how business brokers can help buyers successfully purchase an existing business.

It’s no secret attention spans are shrinking, especially when it comes to reading. Don’t tell them what you do ... Show them! To truly tell your story, you need video.
