    Hello this is Jonathan Jay - and welcome to episode 158 of the Business Buying Strategies podcast. 
    Now if you are a regular listener to the podcast you’ll know that at the start of recent episodes I have opened up my little black book and given the contact details of the lawyer who I recommend and use for my own acquisitions in the children’s day nursery sector. 
     
    Last year, I invited John Andrews onto the podcast to talk about the role that the solicitor plays in a merger or acquisition of a business. Now I meet a fair number of dealmakers who say that if a deal of their goes wrong, it’s usually the solicitor who has messed things up - so I started by asking John if there was any truth in that at all.

    John Graves - buying out of receivership

    John Graves - buying out of receivership

    Hello this is Jonathan Jay - and welcome to episode 157 of the Business Buying Strategies podcast. 
    Now whenever I meet or talk with regular listeners to the show, most tell me how much they love - and how useful they find - the episodes where I talk in depth with a single dealmaker about the acquisitions they have made. 
     
    I’m pleased to hear this - because I love them too! And from time to time, I meet dealmakers who have so much energy, and who are so keen to get started, that I want to bottle their enthusiasm and vitality and sell it!
     
    This week, I want to listen again to one such dealmaker, who was a guest on the podcast at the beginning of last year. His name is John Graves, and having decided to focus on acquiring distressed businesses, he bought his first company - a hotel and golf club in receivership - in a deal that took just seven days to complete.

    Interview with John Hood

    Interview with John Hood

    Hello this is Jonathan Jay - and welcome to episode 154 of the Business Buying Strategies podcast. 
    So this week, I want you to meet entrepreneur John Hood - now John and I first met many years ago, at a time when I had acquired a digital marketing agency that I was gearing up to sell.
    John is no stranger to the world of acquisition. By the age of 27, John had already either started or acquired a furniture business, a distribution business and an IT business.
    Our paths only crossed again in 2019, after John had identified home improvement and construction as a sector that was ideal for following my buy and build strategy.
    Here’s John talking about his background, and how with his first home improvement business acquisition, he made just about every mistake it was possible to make.

    Interview with James Gardner

    Interview with James Gardner

    Hello this is Jonathan Jay - and welcome to episode 153 of the Business Buying Strategies podcast. 
    So this week, my guest is James Gardner - an entrepreneur who started a business with his brother 20 years ago, grew it, expanded into the USA and then sold it, with James retained by the business’s new owners.
    Now last year James was one of a dozen or so lucky people to spend the day with me, on a business excursion to Amsterdam, when I was able to advise him one to one about the next steps he should take to acquire his next business.
    As you’ll here, his acquisition opportunity came about following a casual, throwaway conversation he had with a business owner in a barber’s shop. Here’s James telling his story.

My favourite podcast

I’ve listened to every podcast and did the online course. I think this is the best podcast around and have recommended it to many business associates. Keep up the great content Jonathan! I’m looking forward to the event in Richmond on Friday.

Great content - Sound a big challenge

Hi - I’m loving this - new to me podcast- really interesting interview. However I am struggling to hear them. Is use podcasts all the time while out exercising, only this one is proving a challenge to hear and it’s one I really want to listen to carefully, pause my watch occasionally to think and resume. Any plans to sort the sound?
