Who Else Wants To Learn From The Useful Anecdotes And Real Stories Told By Former Business Owners?
One day I realized that having useful anecdotes from former business owners might reinforce some of the important information provided here.

It means that it hasn't been presented in the way that is best for them. One way of presenting the information in another way is to get former business owners to provide useful anecdotes.
So former business owners were invited to provide their useful anecdotes. However, they were asked to respond to the statement 'What I Wish I Had Known Then'. Where then referred to before selling their businesses. Perhaps not surprisingly, none of the comments contained anything very radical or surprising. The most common underlying theme was that they were doing something for the very first time and how could they have expected to do it well. They should have had help to prepare for it.
