Hey Divers

I just celebrated my 25th year as President and owner of Aqua Adventures and When I came in last week, I had an offer from Dad to go to work on the family cattle ranch in East Texas. Well after thinking about it for a few days, I thought 25 years is enough of any one thing and that if I am ever going to do something new, it is either now or never.

So I am going into the cattle business! Hey, with the Gulf oil spill shutting down 30% of the sea food market, now might be the right time. I am going to finish out this summer in the dive business and then this fall I am off on a new adventure in life.

My crazy decision may be your opportunity. I am basically going to walk away from this business at the end of summer, but before I do that, I thought I would see if anyone else might be ready for a change in their life. I am willing to take less money for this business, with a 25 year track record of success, then you could create even a small dive shop for these days. Plus you will get the e-store that sells in over 50 different countries around the world.

If you would like to be your own boss and you would like to travel the world scuba diving for a living, then maybe you ought to consider a change in your lifestyle, this week.

Now if you already own a dive shop or e-store, what a great way to get a foot hold in the Dallas area. I have over $200,000 invested in the e-store since 2003 and you can pick it up for pennies on the dollar (the e-store can be run from anywhere in the world).

If you are a manufacturer, distributer, wholesaler or Travel destination this is your chance to move product through a well established e-store directly into the hands of your consumers, for a fraction of what you spend on advertising in conventional ways. With this e-store and Google advertising you can generate sales directly to the products you need to move, Today! This web site also has pricing levels for; consumers, volume discounts, dealers, distrubters and wholesalers. So for a small company that needs a web presence you can run one web site for all pricing levels.

I have $142,000 in assets and plus the inventory. This is an offer that has no "good will" mark up. This is a straight forward offer for you to get into you own business for $65,000 (plus the cost of the remaining inventory that will be down to about $15,000 to $20,000 after the sale) for a "turn key business" with a 25 year track record.
OR highest bid or best offer by July 31st (if acceptable, I reserve the right to refuse any and all offers)

The Company has averaged about $700,000 dollars a year over the last 25 years with 1.3 million being a high point and $380,000 being the low. You can make about $70,000 a year if you hire help and a lot more if you want to run it with help from your family or by yourself. Plus as much free travel as you can stand.

Sales can easily be increased in; Business to Government sales, on line e-store sales if your computer savvy and in tons of other areas if you want to excel in diver training and service.

I have it listed with a business broker, so to get any more details you will need to be a serious buyer willing to sign a confidentially agreement and you will need to have access to a business loan or have access to cash in your investment funds. 

Because this is going out to tens of thousands of people I won’t be able to answer all of your questions on the sale of the business. For more information call Mike or Jon at 972-792-0100 and go through VR Business Brokers or click here if you are interested in some more info
