RCG is different. CT & MA do not require any special licensing for business brokers. The 2008-09 economic downturn produced a lot of displaced people who, for $10 business cards, thought they could sell businesses for people. RCG has made a lot of money rescuing business people from these horror stories. Do it right the first time!
