The Commercial Ventures Way
Owning one’s business is very much a part of the Canadian Dream. The realization of that Dream requires the investment of all of one’s resources; money, time, dedication, and, indeed, a complete change in one’s lifestyle. Operating a successful business is an all consuming task, the success or failure of which has far reaching ramifications for the individual entrepreneur and his family. It is not an endeavor to be taken lightly.
We, as business brokers, have a unique opportunity to help people realize their Dream. Such opportunity imposes obligations beyond those of ordinary commerce. It imposes grave social responsibility to which the business broker should be dedicated.
The business broker must strive to maintain and improve the standards of the profession, and share with fellow brokers a common responsibility for the profession’s reputation for excellence and integrity.
In the interpretation and satisfaction of these obligations, the business broker can take no safer guide than that embodied in the Golden Rule: “To treat others as you would wish them to treat you.”
