    The Opportunity in Acquiring Established Businesses

    The Opportunity in Acquiring Established Businesses

    Should you start your own business or buy an existing one? 
    On today's episode, host Roland Frasier explains why buying an already successful business might make more sense than building one from scratch. There are over 30 million small to medium-sized businesses in the US, about 25 million in Europe, and 3 million in Canada and Australia. The interesting thing about these stats is that, at any given time, about 4.3 million of these businesses are put up for sale, but only 720,000 will actually sell. And with more and more baby boomers retiring, opportunities to buy already successful businesses will keep popping up. 

    Listen in to hear Roland explain why now is the best time to start acquiring already successful businesses and get in on deals worldwide with no money out of pocket.

    Tax and Deal Structure Q&A

    Tax and Deal Structure Q&A

    Should you build your company around a corporate strategy? What about the risk of double taxation?
    On today's episode, host Roland Frasier breaks down some important tax considerations when consulting for equity or buying and selling a business. Although there are a lot of strategies you can implement to reduce your overall tax burden, there's always the risk of double taxation. A lot of entrepreneurs find it unfair to pay taxes twice on the same income. Fortunately, there's something you can do about it. One way is to stop paying dividends and put the extra earnings into a Roth IRA.

    Tune in to learn how taxes play into the buying and selling of businesses and how you can minimize those taxes while still maintaining some liquidity to fund future spending

    How to Only Do the Deals You Love with Trevor Jenson

    How to Only Do the Deals You Love with Trevor Jenson

    Want to start consulting for equity? Would it make sense to be a general consultant advising everyone about everything?
    On today's episode, host Roland Frasier talks to Trevor Jenson, a deal junkie with a reputation for being able to raise money and close deals. Trevor shares how he was able to buy a company without money out of pocket and how consulting for equity allowed him to cross paths with Dwight Freeney and Michael Jordan. 
    If you want to be successful when consulting for equity, you must pick a niche. After consulting for 200 companies in just under a year and a half, Trevor's consulting company still failed to take off. Why? Because they consulted for all types of businesses. You can't be an expert at everything. And soon enough, clients will see past your lack of depth in a particular area of expertise.   

    IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL LEARN:
    How to buy companies with no money out of pocketWhy you should consider investing in the eSports spaceThe power of consulting for equityYou need different mentors at different levels of growthNiche: Required or unnecessary when consulting for equity?First step to raising money through a fundTesting the viability of your idea using data
