Kickball Drunkies . . .

By senoff.michael@gmail.com On June 22, 2011 No Comments

We’ve got a park across the street from our house.

So we’re used to hearing all kinds of crazy sounds coming from that-a-way.

Like for example “The Whewers.”

A group of older men who play horseshoes on Tuesdays at four.

And just like clockwork, one of the men yells out at the top of his lungs . . .

Whewwwwwwwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeee

Every fricken time you hear the clink of the iron.

Clink

Whewwwwwwwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeee

Clink

Whewwwwwwwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeee

ANNOYING!

But wait.

It gets worse.

Now, we’ve got this new mob at our park.

I call them “the Kickball Drunkies.”

I looked over the fence to look at this unruly bunch.

And I could not believe my eyes.

About twenty grungy, maggoty looking teenagers playing Kickball.

And to put an adult twist on this child’s game, they only use one hand to field the ball.

Why?

Because the other hand is holding beer!

And when you are trying to sell your business for top dollar, it can be like trying to play Kickball drunk.

It’s fun, but you’re not going to be vary good at it.

Selling your business is not a game.

And you’ll need an expert who can help you on your way.

An in this all new, three part interview, you’ll learn how to sell your business the two handed way.

The title is called . . .

Insider Secrets From One Of America’s Best Business Brokers About
The Only Way To Buy Or Sell A Small Business In Today’s Economy… And Make Top Dollar

http://www.hardtofindseminars.com/Biz_Broker_Interview.htm

Most small business owners have no clue how to sell their businesses.

They either hang on for far too long and essentially miss the best time to sell or they shortchange themselves on the deal by using outdated methods for selling that fail to showcase the true value of their time and effort.

But in this three-part audio, you’ll hear how to make all the right moves, straight from one of America’s top business brokers.

He gives a step-by-step inside-look at how to take the same “Wall Street principles” large corporations use to attract the right buyer, and apply them to your small business.

You’ll also hear exactly how to research, find, and buy the best small businesses – even if those businesses aren’t currently on the market!

Part One: Selling A Main St. Business Using Wall St. Practices

Roughly 60% of businesses on the market today won’t sell, and that may have something to do with the traditional “fire, aim, ready” approach most people use to sell them.

They do everything backwards by listing their businesses before they analyze the marketplace and determine their place in it.

But in Part One, you’ll hear how they do it on Wall St. to make billion-dollar businesses look good on paper, and how to easily adapt that to your Main St. transactions.

You’ll also hear…

* A five-second exercise for finding the exact person most interested in buying your small business or what type of business  you should be most interested in buying

* The three classifications of buyers in any market – industry, financial and sophisticated – and what each could mean for  you

* All the “insider” secrets about the way most business transactions are actually financed – and how knowing those basics  will give you an edge in the buying process

* The three areas of any business you should enhance in order to get top dollar – and a real-life example of how one young  woman was offered $165,000 for her no-assets, right-out-of-college small business (but instead decided to enhance these three  areas and ended up getting $1.25 million from a sophisticated buyer – in just 6 months!)

* A very simple tactic for using the current economy as a way to attract sophisticated buyers

Part Two: The Most Effective Way To Find And Buy A Business

Most business owners think they’ll be able to sell their businesses on their own when the time is right. But the biggest problem with that picture is that business owners tend to hang onto their businesses long after they’ve taken their foot off the gas pedal.

Fortunately, there are strategies for getting to them before that happens, and in Part Two, you’ll hear what  they are.

You’ll also hear the only way that works to approach owners of businesses not currently on the market and get them to sell including…

* How to write a well-crafted non-threatening letter that will get business owners interested – while also letting them know  you’re not just another BS-artist

* Exactly what you can expect to pay if you enlist a good business broker to run searches for you

* A play-by-play account of the important meetings you’ll need to set up with a potential seller – what you need to make sure  they bring to the table and what you’re next steps should be

* The only three questions you’ll need to ask to determine if a business-buying deal should go any further

* How to identify the areas of opportunity in any business

Part Three: A Quick Overview Of The Business-Buying Process

Every successful business has two people behind it with two different sets of skills – an inside guy and an outside guy.

The trick is in recognizing which skill set you have, and in matching it with a business’s needs, or vice versa.

And in Part Three, you’ll hear how to do that.

You’ll also hear…

* How to increase the value of a company without increasing declared earnings

* Actual case studies that illustrate the best ways to use acquisitions to make a company instantly more valuable before  selling

* The three things you need to know about any business to determine its profitability

* A quick look at how to use an IRS field guide to calculate a company’s worth

* An easy three-step plan for getting the most from selling a franchise

The typical real estate model will never work for buying or selling a business because most business owners want to keep their sale a secret – and the typical real estate model requires an average of 60 potential buyers touring a property before a sale can happen!

But fortunately, there is a much more efficient approach that works.

And in this audio you’ll hear how to make the kind of amazing (yet low-key) deals you’ve probably only heard about after the fact.

Art Hamel Voted Most Boring By Forbes Magazine…

By senoff.michael@gmail.com On May 15, 2009 No Comments

Art Hamel put over 100,000 students through his business buying
seminars.

And at the peak of his seminars business a call came in from
Forbes Magazine.

Art tells what happened next in this short story …

We had a call from Forbes headquarters in Los Angeles.

They wanted two of their people to attend our seminar.

They just wanted to know what the price was.

So they signed up and took the seminar.

And after it was done, they talked to me.

They said we’re going to be talking to some of your clients.

So, I just figured they’d write an article about us.

So, it happened, the seminar is over.

We gave them a list of the people that went to our seminar.

We gave them information on businesses that a lot of people bought.

We really went all out to give them all the information they
wanted.  I mean, everything.

So, they spent weeks on it going through it.

And I’m sitting here, and I get Forbes magazine, so I read Forbes
next month, nothing.

Forbes hits the month after that and no article.

So I call them on the phone, and I said how come I didn’t make it.

I mean, how come?

I thought you were going to write an article.

They said we were, but you do realize we’re investigative
reporters.

I said, well what does that mean.

He said, we don’t go out, write people up that have a good program
that works.

I said, what are you talking about?

They said, you’re the most boring person that we’ve ever chose to
look at.

You teach a certain thing and it really works.

I mean, the other people we go after are people that are scamsters.

They said everybody we checked with had great things to say — and
actually, you are very boring.

I was sitting there, I was really stunned.

I was voted most boring by Forbes Magazine.

After a while, it became a joke, but in the beginning, I was really
insulted because I was told that I was boring …

But not to worry, Art Hamel has bought over 200 businesses in the last 40 years. He
started back in the 1960’s, with a small 25 unit motel in Modesto,
California – that took all of his time, energy and money.

And today, Art buys only multi-million dollar businesses that require
almost none of his time, energy and money.

Art has since shown tens of thousands of other people via seminars
and his own unique home study course — how to do the same thing.

Art and I have recently answered over 130 of your most pressing
questions about how to buy a winning business. And you can hear all
of them at this link below.

You’ll get Art Hamel’s best answers and he won’t hold anything back.
