>>Let’s say a normal P/E ratio is 15, and the projected earnings are $200,000 a year. If this is the case the business would be worth $3 million.

Seriously?! You've seen any small businesses with $200K or so in earnings selling for 15x?

Small businesses usually go for 2x to 6x (and 6x is highly optimistic). I'm afraid you're giving people the wrong impression with your mention of 15x. It's only very large (usually stock market listed) companies that go for over 10x.
