    The Extra Step That Will Make You More Money, Every Time, With Roland Frasier 

    The Extra Step That Will Make You More Money, Every Time, With Roland Frasier 

    Roland Frasier demonstrates how to get Everything out of Everything you do... 
    Want to make sure you’re not leaving any money on the table?  This episode is for you. Roland Frasier tells the story of being stuck in Volcanic Iceland with his lovely wife. Hanging out in a hotel room for a week, Roland took the time to try out Affiliate Marketing. Spurred on by an intention to make more money than Frank Kern, Roland hit the ball out of the park (of course). But the story gets interesting when Roland unpacks how he took that quick win and maximized it by asking, “What else can I do”? What’s the opportunity within the opportunity?”.
    Listen today if you’re interested in this powerful way of thinking, known as Butterfly Leverage. It will multiply the returns on everything you apply it to.
    “When you are thinking about anything, you’re leaving a ton of money on the table (I promise you) if you don’t do this...Take your core action (Whatever the core thing is that you’re going to do), and then say, what are five ways that I can leverage that? And then for each of those things, ask again, what are five ways I can leverage or monetize that?” Roland Frasier.

    Acquisition and Business Growth Insights, With Paul Lemberg

    Acquisition and Business Growth Insights, With Paul Lemberg

    Paul Lemberg helps entrepreneurs become wealthy. Sounds good, right? He’s our guest on the show today.

    Who is Paul Lemberg? Paul started his first company with a partner and $3,000 of credit card debt. It sold three years later for just under nine million dollars. Since then, Lemberg has consulted with Fortune-100 companies like Adobe, IBM, and Goldman Sachs, but his true passion is helping small business owners and CEOs double and triple their profits and sometimes grow their companies more than 10-fold. In this episode, Paul talks about Roland’s favorite subject, Acquisitions. If you enjoy this conversation, take a listen to the last time we had Paul on the show, here.

    “I found out that you could help Cisco make an extra a hundred million dollars or help IBM save a half a billion, and nobody really cared, like nobody’s life was transformed from it. And I had this epiphany one day that my people were entrepreneurs and that I had amassed a skill set that might be valuable”. Paul Lemberg.

    Listen For,
    The real issue in selling a business.  “If you can negotiate the multiple, you can negotiate the value of that company either up or down, depending on which side of that house that you’re on.” Paul Lemberg.
    The most important thing for most business owners (when selling their business). “So, a lot of people approach acquisition as if the money were the most important thing. And for some people, it is, but for many business owners, they’re most concerned with whether their business will be taken care of.” Paul Lemberg.
    Which business(es) should you focus on buying? “Invest in what you know, that’s it. If you understand the underlying business, you can make money as an investor. If you don’t understand the underlying business, you have no idea if that business is going to make money in the future or not.” Paul Lemberg.
    Why it’s so critical to understand what the seller/owner wants and why they want it.
    Plus,
    Why nothing compares to Paid Traffic when it comes to building a business. “Paid traffic is the only thing that you can actually scale. It’s the only thing that you can actually maintain control of from now until the end of time”. Lemberg.

    Top Takeaway “Anytime you hear yourself saying, but I’ve got this much invested… money that you’ve put in, time that you’ve put in, heartbreak that you’ve put in, whatever it is. It could be the deal. It could be your job. It could be your existing business or a negotiation. It could be anything. But those things keep you in, even when common sense says it’s time to get out. So the simple question is: If you were starting today from scratch, would you be interested? And if the answer is no, probably not, then walk away.” Paul Lemberg

Revito ,

Best source of business information

You learn something every single episode. Roland’s mind truly works in a special way. He’s always thinking outside the box on how to make money while putting up as little capital as possible. He pretty much buys into businesses for little to nothing and then sells it for much much more. I just started a few affiliate marketing products websites and his stuff is really helpful. I truly believe I will become a millionaire because of this man. And I’m saying a millionaire within a year!! Thanks for everything you put out there!

Joe Kerns ,

High-level (surprisingly practical) advice that goes beyond business.

Roland is a legend, but beyond that, the usefulness of the info in this podcast is so much more than I even expected. I rarely “favorite” episodes to come back later, but this podcast feels like every episode is a keeper.

It’s an incredible blend of high-level strategy with actionable steps to turn it into reality. It’s also obviously steeped in years of actual experience, not just theory. Feels like you’re getting to be a fly on the wall of a conversation you’d never normally get to be part of.

Ima listener ,
