Free your time & the truth about drop-shipping



Hey there,


This week I’m talking with Connor Gillivan about a couple of things including freeing up more of your time by hiring freelancers and assistants as well as the truth about online drop shipping businesses.

What about online drop shipping?  Connor pulls the curtain back on the get-rich-quick schemes being marketed about how easy it is to make money in this space.  Worth a watch.

Connor also gives us some insight into his current business of connecting small business operators with freelancers for both projects and regular service work.

Very insightful if you find you’re a little too busy lately.

Taking your name OFF the line.. Talk about Commercial Credit




Hey there,

How do you get credit in the name of your business which isn’t personally guaranteed or affecting your own personal credit score?

When your business has ‘grown up’ sufficiently, you may be able to unlock the doors of true ‘commercial credit.’

Today I’ve got Ty Crandall from Credit Suite on the line to discuss some of the things that commercial lenders everywhere look at and especially the new ‘online lending’ platforms.

You’ll want to take notes whether you’re in business today or you plan to be one day by buying an already existing business.

FREE Money from the Government to Buy a Business



What about FREE money?

I got a question from a YouTube viewer asking about government grants for buying businesses.

I’ve learned over the course of time that governments operate on their own time tables and with their own priorities.

Let me tell you about what I’ve learned about free money from the government…

(of course not getting into the politics of the fact that free money from the government is actually coming out of your neighbour’s pocket so it’s not really FREE is it??)

Easter Jesus vs. Christmas Jesus- Small Business Style


Hoppy Easter!

Every time Easter comes along and people start talking about the resurrection of Christ I can’t help but remember the hilarious dinner scene in the movie Talladega Nights. 

Actors Will Ferrell and John Reilly get into a discussion about which Jesus they like better.  The Easter Jesus or the Baby Christmas Jesus.

So, If you happen to prefer Christmas over Easter, maybe you’d enjoy the last two years Christmas Small Biz videos while you spend time with family and friends over the long weekend.

Cheers

What's better for an absent owner? A C-Store or a Restaurant? How To Buy a Business



This viewer has one simple question-

David, if I have to choose between a restaurant and a convenience store to buy as an absentee owner, which one makes the most sense?

Well, for this one we’re going to have to take a look at what the Big Boys do and try to understand why.

How does one go from selling real estate to selling businesses?


This week I take a few moments to address the questions of a Real Estate Broker who is thinking about offering Business Brokerage services.

I’ve made videos before about how Realtors are NOT Business Brokers and how different businesses are from buildings.

This week I discuss the differences in how these two types of intermediaries do business and approach things.

This viewer is facing a challenge if he wants to do things correctly as the culture and methods of these two types of business are very different.




Also, watch this older video about real estate agents selling businesses and something called the Dunning-Kruger effect. (sounds spooky, right?) Watch: https://youtu.be/s9HkiHiiEB0

Money for Nothing and Chicks for Free- Dire Strait Business Buyer Mindset Issues


Why are some people writing me to ask about finding lenders who will lend them ALL the money they need to buy a business?

Why can’t I just roll over and agree that it’s perfectly normal for a broke person with no money to magically be able to go buy a business worth hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars all with borrowed money?

This week I made a video about being realistic in the process of buying a business and how some people will find themselves victims because of their mindset.

I take time out from my vacation to address the unwavering beliefs of one viewer. Watch: https://youtu.be/XV9cHTvj0dA
