  2. Do an inventory count. Calculate both cost (what you paid) and retail value
  3. List all the Furniture and equipment that will convey with the business. Come up with what it would cost to buy it new today and what is the current fair market value.
  4. Make a list of everything that was involved in preparing your space for business (e.g. installing ventilation in hair salon, grease trap in a restaurant, etc.)
  5. Make a list and be prepared to discuss your competition and what is your competitive edge.
