I'd be very interested in hearing your story in how you achieved a good outcome as a business owner (or anyone representing the owners). I'm particularly interested in arrangements that would not be considered 'mainstream' in a typical commercial contract (sale or lease). I'd like this to be a brain-storming discussion thread, with few boundaries. Your story could involve leasing or buying and any permeations in between or beyond. I'm really interested in innovative exchanges you negotiated in your transaction or ongoing arrangement.
