Johnathan G and I rock it about buying businesses and systems on The Blind Entreprneur

I had a great video interview with Johnathan G on his program; The Blind Entrepreneur.

He's not actually blind, as you will see.  We talked about buying, selling and putting systems into a SME to make it better.  It was really a great interview and I had a lot of fun.

You can listen at the podcast link below or watch the video here:

Don’t you love the smell of fresh bread?

It’s almost as good as the smell of money, isn’t it?

A YouTube viewer wants to know my opinion of bread routes.  It’s a simple little business where you deliver bread to local stores on behalf of a commercial bakery.

It makes their distribution easier since they don’t have to manage a fleet and since the delivery people are their own boss, fewer employees too.

So, is this a good kind of business for someone to get into?

Watch what I think of bread routes and other distribution route businesses in this new video I made: https://youtu.be/o3-bBxmfcT8

No Sales? No Problem, Right?!? The issue of 'pre-revenue' startups.


How much is your new SAAS worth before you sign up any customers?


Don’t know what a SAAS is? Don’t worry.

Quick on the heels of last week’s article and recording about valuing online businesses, I feel that I need to clear the air on how to put a price on a pre-revenue startup.

I hesitate to use the term ‘business’ for these speculative ventures since I like my businesses to have cash flows attached to them.

Learn more about my ornery, old-man type opinions that would likely be considered quite ignorant and rude in Silicon Valley circles.

Valuing Online Businesses - How to buy a business - How to sell a business


What’s with all the internet entrepreneurs suddenly coming out of hiding and looking for my advice?

In the last few weeks I’ve heard from several online business people who need help in determining a value for their business.

What is it worth and why is it different from a real-world business? 

There is so much crazy buzz out there about how to put a price on these .com companies that I felt I had to address it in an audio recording.
