All too often I see restaurant and business owners get crazy about getting "their money" back from the restaurant or business they've invested in. They get some crazy idea that someone is going to bail them out like the banks and auto manufacturers were bailed-out.  Well it doesn't happen.

Be smart about selling your restaurant or business. If you're in trouble, don't get in more trouble by pricing your business too high that no one buys it and you lose every thing. Price it to sell. And unless you're a kamakazi person who wants to take everyone down with them - and they're the only ones that usually die when they dive themsleves into the aircraft carrier -  you MUST price it to sell fast. What you put into the business bares no relationship to what it is worth.

So if you're in a tight spot, ask us to price it to sell fast. Something is better than nothing when everyone is looking for money from you.
