Christian Science Practitioners Business Acquisitions: Financial Considerations
Startup Christian Science practitioners businesses carry a host of financial risks and concerns. Without an operational history, it's hard to predict how your startup will actually perform in the marketplace.

An acquired business also has documented assets and earnings - a big advantage with lenders and investors.
