    (EP32): Thomas Smale, Over A Billion Dollars In Company Sales, What Business Models Lead To The Biggest Exit

    (EP32): Thomas Smale, Over A Billion Dollars In Company Sales, What Business Models Lead To The Biggest Exit

    This is Vested Capital episode 32, featuring Thomas Smale, the founder of FE International, a leading M&A firm.  
    I first interviewed Thomas 9 years ago (https://yaro.blog/11850/thomas-smale/). 
    At the time his company had helped to facilitate over $5 Million in deals. Now that number is over a billion dollars in business acquisitions.  
    I asked Thomas what led to the growth and how his team has expanded. We also talked about what business models leads to the biggest exit prices, what types of businesses are popular with buyers and more.

    (EP30): Mikkel Thorup, World Traveling Expat, How To Move Offshore And Eliminate Taxes

    (EP30): Mikkel Thorup, World Traveling Expat, How To Move Offshore And Eliminate Taxes

    Mikkel Thorup hosts The Expat Money Show podcast (I was on episode 155) and has spent over 21 years in continual travel around the world, visiting more than 100 countries including Colombia, North Korea, Zimbabwe, and Iran. 
    Mikkel runs a consultancy to help high net worth individuals move overseas, providing guidance on tax structure, visas, residencies, passports, raising your family (education, lifestyle), company structure and banking.
    I asked Mikkel on to Vested Capital, first to learn about his background and how he left Canada and became a world traveler, and then how he was able to learn such a unique and dynamic skillset -- staying up to date with everything an expat needs to consider when moving overseas.
    During the second half of the interview I asked Mikkel all the big questions, including which countries should we consider moving to, how to avoid paying tax and where to setup your company and bank accounts. 
    Enjoy the podcast.

    (EP29): Arthur Menard, CEO And Founder Of Lambs, Radiation Protection Clothing DTC Brand And 8-Figure Business

    (EP29): Arthur Menard, CEO And Founder Of Lambs, Radiation Protection Clothing DTC Brand And 8-Figure Business

    Arthur Menard is the CEO and co-founder of Lambs, a clothing brand that blocks 99% of EMFs (cellphone, 4G, 5G, Wifi, Bluetooth radiation) as well as 10x the amount of UVs compared to traditional clothing.
    His company is doing 8-figures in sales, having got their start selling men's underwear online -- which I actually purchased several years ago.
    Arthur has an interesting backstory, having first got started as an entrepreneur selling online training, then later co-founding a local marketing app supporting French bakeries. 
    The story behind Lambs however, is the most interesting, given he was blazing a trail with a new form of clothing.
    If you're selling anything DTC (direct to consumer) or looking to invent a new category, this podcast will be insightful.
    Enjoy the interview.

    In this interview David shares the origin story of Voices, how they first launched their platform, secured a great domain name, attracted new customers and new voice talent to make sure they had both supply and demand and then grew the company to the point where it is today, heading towards a Nasdaq listing after raising $18 Million from Morgan Stanley and others.

    (EP27): Teddy Kyres, Founder Groupe Orbis Mortgage Brokerage, Single Broker Does $100 Million In Loans In One Year, How To Secure Finance For Property When The Banks Say No

    (EP27): Teddy Kyres, Founder Groupe Orbis Mortgage Brokerage, Single Broker Does $100 Million In Loans In One Year, How To Secure Finance For Property When The Banks Say No

    Teddy Kyres is the founder of Groupe Orbis, a Montreal based mortgage brokerage firm, with over 60 brokers following the system Teddy created for succeeding as a mortgage broker.
    Teddy is also my mortgage broker and helped me secure finance for investing in Montreal when I didn't have much of a tax history in Canada after moving here from Australia. The banks wouldn't loan to me, so Teddy helped me find alternative financing until I built up more history as a Canadian tax payer.
    During this podcast we look at Teddy's early years as a mortgage broker and what he did to become one of the most successful in the entire country, doing over $100 Million in loans in a single year as one individual broker.
    We then look at how Teddy branched out on his own starting a brokerage firm so he could expand by building a team.
    Throughout the interview I also ask Teddy to break down his own property investing strategy, which as you would expect, has played a big part in Teddy's strategy for growing his net worth over time.
    Enjoy the episode.
