If you are comparint dolars per hour vs ip investment vs profit from a business . Then buying a business is not for you
You buy businesses for tax deductions, getting rid of the wife, a lifestyle (a very busy one), ego, personal satisfaction etc etc
and if you can earn decent dollars then thats almost a bonus
I couldn't disagree with this any more than I do.
Buying a business is predominantly about earning decent dollars otherwise what's the point?? You're clearly doing it wrong if you think it's about tad deductions, being very busy and not earning much.
Businesses can be extremely profitable, certainly more than buy and hold properties and at times developments too
