Vet clinic was on the market for 34 minutes. We close August 15th.
For buyers: I need to find a cleaning company, a “tangible” business with 500k EBITDA, an entertainment venue that nets 700k, a dental clinic, an optometrist and more gyms west of 120th St.
For sellers: I need to find someone who wants a mower repair shop, a tortilla distribution route, an online store, a weight loss clinic, a bar & grill in Sarpy County, a salon and an urgent care.
Come on prospective entrepreneurs and business owners ready to retire… let’s do this.
Of all the different jobs I’ve tried and their varying levels of success, I think one of the most difficult is my current position as a business broker. It’s a combination of being a therapist and a matchmaker and can be simultaneously calculating and emotional.
That being said, it’s one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done.
In late January, I joined Cortney Sells and her team at The Firm Business Brokerage in Omaha and have since been helping people who are ready to retire, move or dissolve a partnership sell their businesses, and people who are ready to invest money and time in something more self-driven (not to mention more lucrative) than the stock market.
If you or someone you know would like to buy or sell a business, please contact me at 402.972.6200 or RachaelR@thefirmb2b.com.
Forget about that shit. Show your work.
What you do online should be in the middle of a venn diagram between what’s helpful and/or interesting to you and what’s helpful and/or interesting to others.
For example: I use this Tumblr as a way to keep track of stuff I’m interested in, and research I’m doing. But I SHARE it in a way that might be interesting to other people. So what I get then is basically a public file folder that benefits both me and the people who follow the Tumblr.
As far as balancing working and sharing, it goes in this order:
You do your work, then every day you find a little bit of your process that you can share with others. Depending on where you are in the process, sometimes it’s in-progress work, sometimes it’s research or something you’re reading, sometimes it’s a finished work, and sometimes it’s a story about what something you’ve made is doing out in the world.
But again, sorry for the hard sell, but I wrote my whole next book about this. You should pre-order it!
