REALIZE YOUR DREAM OF BUSINESS OWNERSHIP! Due diligence consultants

WANT TO OWN REAL ESTATE OR A BUSINESS?

About Us

Our Beginnings

Since a young age, founder Richard C. James wanted to be a lawyer.  While working "teenager jobs" and "young adult jobs," he became interested in business.  Owning a business also became a dream, and now he helps you achieve your dream of owning a business, a part interest in a business, or commercial or investment real estate for additional income streams.  In today's economy, where outsourcing of white collar jobs to other countries and outsourcing of blue collar jobs to automation and robotics, business ownership will become more and more important.  Instead of starting a business from the ground up, why not buy a business?  Buying a small business with positive cash flow could be a better investment than a six-figure college degree  in liberal arts!

The Name

The founder was teaching his children about Proverbs 3:5-6: 


"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and He  will  make  your paths straight."  


After telling his children to stay on the "straight path," the name for the business hit him.

What We Do

We help business dreamers examine businesses to buy in the small to middle market.  Due diligence is "checking under the hood" of a business.  If you want to buy a six or seven figure business, who is going to help you examine the business and determine if it is a good buy based on your goals?  Straight Path Diligence will help you!


We are business and financial consultants who help you buy a business or real estate.
