Paul Lapidus has over 40 years of experience owning and operating many varied businesses such as:
- Manufacturing clothing for over 12 years.
- Invented and produced (with a partner) a Trademarked baked cracker named JJ Flats which we sold to Arnold Bakeries.
- Owned and Operated 2 Gas Stations/Convenience Stores.
- Owned and Operated 2 Car Washes.
With all of the experience related to operating as well as buying and selling his own businesses, Paul is uniquely positioned to help others succeed in the purchase of their “Dream Business” or moving in a new direction as they ease out of the daily responsibilities of business ownership and spend more time doing the things they have wanted to do while in retirement. Paul understands that it’s not enough to just list and sell a business - “ A business broker must care about the feelings and thoughts of the Seller”, says Paul. “It is the difference between being a great broker or an average one”. Paul thinks Murphy Business succeeds in developing the very best trained and caring brokers in the business. Paul’s philosophy is “There are no bad questions in life-only bad answers”
Before his entrance into the business world, Paul graduated from Long Island University in New York with a degree in Psychology and feels that it has helped greatly in his daily routine of getting to really know and listen to people. He lives in Lantana, Florida with his wife and they have two children.
