    97. How to Prepare for the Looming Recession

    97. How to Prepare for the Looming Recession

    There is a LOT going on with the economy, local politics, global politics, and more right now. Everywhere you turn are headlines about inflation, recession, war, uncertainty, market declines, and more. With all of these scary headlines, the question becomes: "How does all of this affect our businesses and our lives?"

    It's a difficult question to answer as there are so many variables to consider and so many unknowns. However, we do know that there is nothing new about inflation, recessions, wars, market fluctuations, and many of the other things going on in our world today.

    So, one of the best ways to chart our path forward is to look at the lessons we've learned in the past. In times of change, fortunes are lost and fortunes are made. Inflation and a looming recession could spell disaster for your laundromat and your personal finances, or it can add a zero to your income and net worth.

    In today's show, we're going to explore some ways that laundromat owners and investors can prepare for a recession, whether one is coming or not. We'll focus on 7 primary steps to take to prepare your business and yourself for a potential recession and set you up for success no matter what happens going forward!

    96. How Much Is a Laundromat Really Worth?

    96. How Much Is a Laundromat Really Worth?

    This episode answers one of the most frequent questions we get asked: "How do I know how much a laundromat is worth?" While there is a lot that goes into determining the valuation of a laundromat, the information in this episode will allow you to get an accurate initial valuation to make an offer on a laundromat.

    This episode is taken from the first part of a webinar that Jordan gives every 4-6 weeks on how to analyze a laundromat deal. The second part of the webinar explains the process of due diligence and how to verify the critical numbers that determine the value and performance of a laundromat.  To sign up for the next webinar, check out the Events page! You can also watch a replay of the Analysis webinar and every other webinar we've ever done on-demand when you join the Pro Community!

    95. Laundromat Franchises: Worthless or Worth it? With Alex Smereczniak

    95. Laundromat Franchises: Worthless or Worth it? With Alex Smereczniak

    Laundromat franchises are gaining popularity fast in America but there isn't much information about them out there yet. That's about to change. Alex Smereczniak of Laundrolab joins us on the podcast this week to talk about the ins and outs of laundromat franchises.

    Many wonder what value a franchisor brings to the laundromat business and Jordan asks him that outright. They talk through the good, the bad, and the ugly of the laundromat franchise model. They discuss who is a good fit for a franchise and who might not be a good fit. They even discuss how much a franchise location costs and what their model is.

    But this episode isn't only for those who are interested in learning about franchises. Alex has experience running successful laundromats himself and has insights into successful franchisee businesses. And he shares those success tips with us on the show today, as well!

    In addition, Alex is joining Jordan for a free live webinar/Q&A on all things franchising on Thursday, May 24, 2022. If it has already passed, you can view the replay of that webinar and all of the other webinars we've done by joining the Pro Community.

    In today's show, Alex and Jordan discuss:
    How Alex grew a laundry service business 10x while in collegeHow he would change the Washio/Rinse business models to make them more successfulHow he built a laundry pick-up and delivery service, 2ULaundry, to do 3,000lbs/dayHow he raised $400,000 to open a location in RaleighWhat the value in a franchise isHow you can grow your laundry pick-up and delivery business to 3,000lbs/dayFinding one-to-many relationshipsThe process of buying a franchise from start to finishWhat a franchise helps franchisees withWhat you get with a Laundrolab franchiseResource from outside the industry that can help you grow your businessAnd a lot more!

    94. 10x the Speed to Hit Your Goals and 10x Your Results with Jason Drees

    94. 10x the Speed to Hit Your Goals and 10x Your Results with Jason Drees

    Elite athletes, professional musicians, C-Suite executives. What do they all have in common? Well, for one, they're all at the top of their game in their profession. But, for two, they almost always have a coach that is helping them continually progress to reach higher heights and to reach them faster. 

    The thing is, having a coach doesn't have to be just for the elite. In fact, I would argue that the elite are often elite because they have great coaches. They don't get great coaches when they become elite. 

    What does this all mean for you? It might mean that you need to get a coach to help you get to the next level and reach your goals faster. Whether you're looking to buy your first laundromat, wanting to scale your business faster, or trying to branch out to another business or real estate investing, having a great coach will help you overcome the obstacles in your way to getting there.

    Today's guest, Jason Drees, is a performance coach who I have been using to help me level up my business game, and on today's show, he shares some advice on how you can up your game, too!

    Some of the topics that Jason and Jordan cover are:
    How to find success after a big failureHow to overcome your fear to get into the gameIncome levels and how to find where yours should beHow to scale up your goalsHow to know what level you should play atHow to find successAlignment in your lifeHow to change your mindsetWhat are vibrations? Are they real?Your financial mindsetCoaching options for youAnd more! Check out Jason Drees Coaching to see if it's a good fit for you. Be sure to select "Jordan Berry" in the How Did You Hear About Us dropdown box so that they know you're coming from this podcast!

First time buyer, longtime listener

I don’t think there’s a more valuable podcast out there for laundromat owners. As a first time buyer I was able to mitigate some newbie mistakes and immediately got down to business following the ABC’s of laundromat ownership. I’d give this 10/10 stars if I could, keep up the great work Jordan!

realtreeguy ,

So valuable for any stage!

I am closing on my first location next month and feel exponentially more prepared by listening! Such a help to anyone and entertaining along the way!
Thank you for making this podcast, it’s making a difference!

Waleed C ,

Why Aren’t You?

If you’re in the laundromat business or want to get into it you should be soaking up all the info you can from Jordan’s podcast.
