    15. Tony Perez - What Being Acquired is Really Like

    15. Tony Perez - What Being Acquired is Really Like

    Tony started Sucuri, a security company, which was acquired by GoDaddy a few years ago. In this episode he gets real about what acquisition is really like as an entrepreneur, and it's not what you might expect. Tony tells us the struggles he had, including depression and self-doubt, and how there is very little fanfare in this process. 
    I like to hear from Tony because he plays in the big leagues, even before they were acquired they were doing 8 figures, and now they are with a multi-billion dollar company. Enjoy!
