Have any of you found a small local business that wasn't really getting anywhere, purchased it, and proceeded to turn it around? What type of business was it? Did you find it through a flipping website or just through local meetups?

that is a really smart question. I haven't done it myself, but i saw people who did it. there are a lot of opportunities, materials, business which are potential, but are very silent. I saw a man in Iran who started to do

on the small stones, which is not a famous kind of art, he expanded it and little by little , by adding some more detail in them, he reached what he wanted...and now he is a rather famous Millionaire...
I personally suggest both websites and local meetups.

I actually found this forum through research I was doing when I bought a local carpet cleaning business. Ice Cream Kid has a good long post about his experiences with doing it. Currently I am still trying to change us from a bottom feeder company to a luxury service company. Not as easy as I thought, but not impossible.
