"Having spoken to Brad prior to reading his book, I went into it expecting to be impressed - and impressed I was. The owners of our center have backgrounds in law, finance, business, marketing and, of course, early education, yet we found tremendous insights across all of these topics delivered in a way that is easy to comprehend and digest. The book is akin to a Swiss army knife for the child care industry, and I look forward to revisiting the many lessons and best practices Brad shares as we continue in our careers. Thanks, Brad, for your time and effort in putting this together!"

- Chalayne Sayes, CEO, MBC Media

"Brad Barnett’s book about financial success in the childcare business shows his decades of experience in the field of brokering the purchase and sale of them. He brings the wisdom of someone who has seen first-hand how such businesses can succeed. What I really like about the book is the fact that Brad’s suggestions regarding how to run an early education business are applicable to many businesses. And then he includes the warmth and compassion that are must attributes for running a childcare center. Bravo Brad!"

What others have to say...

"Our [Ohio] centers served close to 2000 children per day. It did not take long for us to realize that Brad Barnett of BFS® was the best person/organization to retain. His industry knowledge, practical philosophy, professional approach and personal commitment proved to us that he would find the best match to sell our centers and continue our family legacy."
- Philip Wenk, Ph.D., MBA, President, Creative Playrooms, Inc.
"Owning Rainbow Kids for nearly 16 years and being faced with foreclosure, the options of selling it were extremely limited. Brad Barnett helped me turn the center around…anytime I got worried as my bank’s foreclosure date loomed, Brad stepped in to ensure the timeline was met and the deal was closed. I received $1,195,000…nobody except for BFS® could have achieved that level of success."
- James Sullivan, President, Rainbow Kids Learning Center, Norton, MA
"I have a background in finance; I have been in the industry for almost 25 years and I have worked in real estate. I have been on both sides of the fence, as a seller & buyer innumerable times. I therefore questioned what your company could bring to the table that I was not already bringing. What you & your company bring to the table is beyond my ‘pay grade’ & my Universe!"
- Donny Banerji, President, A Child's World, Jamestown, NC
"Brad Barnett from BFS® impressed me from my first phone call with him to Brad getting on a plane and traveling over 800 miles to (discreetly) tour my childcare center. If you’re looking for a professional, experienced and dedicated group to help with your exit planning and beyond, BFS® will be the only call you need to make."
