Sales Department: Beware of Recentralization

9/19/2022
You’ve probably heard me preach—shout from the mountaintops, even—several times that for us to drive the values of our companies, we have to decentralize ourselves. We have to remove ourselves from the epicenter of our business—position ourselves where it can function without us. But if decentralization is crucial to the success of our companies, why do we keep returning to the fray? In this episode, I discuss recentralization, why business owners do it, and what to do to avoid it. I...

Filling the Holes in Your Exit Plan Today

9/5/2022
I went through the process of exiting three businesses in the last year. Despite my experience as an entrepreneur and certified exit planning advisor, I found that the process of moving my business from an illiquid to a liquid position was challenging. Truly, there’s no amount of preparation that can prepare you for the emotional rollercoaster you’re going to ride as you exit your business. What you can prepare for when you exit your business, however, are the blind spots. In this...

This past year—after over three decades of being a business owner—I finally sold my business.

How can you avoid this and ensure that you sell your business to its full value? In this episode, I discuss the value of exit...

Standard Operating Procedure Deep Dive

8/1/2022
If something in your business can be measured, it’s something you can improve. But we business owners often don’t measure; instead, we’re keen on licking our forefingers and sticking them up in the air to see which way the wind blows. If we want to scale our businesses and increase their value, we need to create a systematic guideline that’s objective, measurable, and repeatable. In this episode, I discuss what standard operating procedures are and why every business needs to have them. I...

The Wealth Game: Moving from Second to Third Base

6/27/2022
In baseball, moving to third base is a natural progression: you hit the ball, turn first base and run to second, then move to third. Of course, you wouldn’t stand idly on second base if you wanted to win—the same is true for the Wealth Game. At the second base of the Wealth Game, you might consider yourself successful. You’re living within a budget; your income is sustained and stable; you’re making regular contributions to your retirement plan; maybe you have a business you’re expanding....

The Wealth Game: Getting to First

I vividly remember playing baseball while I was growing up. I remember hitting the ball, running the bases, and hearing the fans go crazy. And, of course, there’s my dad on the sideline, jumping up and down, pumping his chest like a peacock, and shouting that he’s proud of me.

Intro to the Wealth Game

The role of video in our everyday lives has become more and more prominent. In fact, Business Insider has observed an unprecedented growth in digital video viewership between 2019 and 2020.

If you’re like me, you spent 90% of your time speaking face-to-face and engaging with clients and groups of people before Covid-19. When the pandemic hit, my world changed.
