Finding the right Business if you've only ever been an employee




How do you know what kind of business to buy if you’ve only ever been an employee?

Martin sends us this question.

He wants to be a business owner but is unsure what kind of business to buy.

I’ve gathered an expert panel including my buddy Rick whose made big changes in his own business life and career coach Betty Kempa.

Removing the Mental Barriers to Success



Removing Mental Limits to Success

Nick Egan uses his study of Buddhism to help show readers how the issues and obstacles of business may be within our own minds.

This is the stuff he uses every day with his coaching clients to help them achieve growth.

I enjoyed reading Shift.

Many of the ideas are not new to me but a refresher is always welcome.

My big takeaway… we colour our world with ‘stories’ or mental programs that we carry with us and rarely challenge.

Also, I learned about meditation and it seems that I may already be doing this in my own way… maybe you are too.

Top Factors to watch when you’re running a business


Eric wants to know the top things to watch when tracking a business’ performance.

The best place to watch your business is from the financial statements!

You need to have the right data at the right time.

Otherwise you don’t know if you have a pricing, purchasing or overhead problem.

It’s the biggest problem I see in most small businesses.

Watch as I share some insights from my experience with some sample financials:

Small Business Struggles and Testing Markets



How to tell if a business is struggling AND how to test if there is a market for a business.

This week I answer two questions from Eric:

Can you tell if a business is having trouble just from a visit?

How can you test the market for a business?

I explain one of the signs I look for in a business that shows they’re short of cash.

The answer to the second is to make a sale before you invest in anything else.

How hard is it to find comparable transaction data when buying a business?



It’s pretty easy.

You just open your wallet and pay to access a private transaction database.

BUT- then you have to know how to deal with the bits of data you’ll find in there.

AND- that’s the problem.

See what I say about the issues here: https://youtu.be/ANKKqemYCTs
