    How This Business Game Can 40x Your Company's Valuation

    How This Business Game Can 40x Your Company's Valuation

    If someone were to ask you about the state of your cash flow, would you be able to give an accurate response? According to today’s guest, Alan Miltz, most companies misunderstand their cash flow, and as a result, they don’t grow at the pace that they should. After seeing so many businesses unknowingly grappling with the same problem, Alan decided to found Cash Flow Story, a company that helps you optimize cash flow to help you improve your profits and reach new heights in your valuations. In our conversation, Alan breaks down the concept behind his method called The Power of One and how it has helped companies 40x their valuation. We discuss how daily 1% percent changes can transform your company and the typical amount of time it takes to see results after implementing The Power of One. Alan also unpacks the reasoning behind his motto “revenue is vanity, profit is sanity, cash is king” and why The Power of One will put your valuation on steroids. To learn more about this essential topic, make sure you tune in today!

    Entrepreneur First – The $10B Founder Bootcamp That Invests In Early Stage Founders

    Entrepreneur First – The $10B Founder Bootcamp That Invests In Early Stage Founders

    There are a host of cultural, environmental, geographical, and personal factors that determine how likely individuals are to become founders and entrepreneurs. And yet, one of the most persistent myths about entrepreneurship continues to be that founders are born rather than made. In today’s episode, we get together with Matt Clifford, CEO and Founder of Entrepreneur First (EF) to discuss the misconceptions around entrepreneurship, and unpack the groundbreaking methods that EF is using to connect aspiring founders with one another in six countries and counting. Tuning in you’ll learn how EF was founded, the methods they’ve used to build their talent networks, and the traits they look for when identifying potential founders. We discuss how entrepreneurship differs depending on the country you’re in and why predetermined paths can often be so unfulfilling. Matt also shares how EF was affected by the COVID 19 pandemic, the rise of remote work, and what this natural experiment taught him about the importance of in-person bonding between potential founders and co-workers in general. EF’s mission is built on the righteous belief that what the most talented people choose to do with their lives matters deeply and plays an integral role in shaping the society and economy of any country. Tune in for this inspiring conversation as we discuss the power of entrepreneurship and why the world needs more founders!
