Key Takeaways: 

  • There are many types of business funding, and they aren’t all created equal. Securing capital for your business ventures can be difficult and time-consuming. 
  • Acquiring a business can be more beneficial than starting one from scratch because you can take the company that was already built and grow it exponentially and sell it later on. 
  • Selling your business can provide you with opportunities you didn’t realize existed. You can get so much time back and the money to invest in opportunities that can grow your wealth. 
  • You can turn the profits from selling your business into passive income. There are many ways to do this. You will gain so much of your time back to focus on growing what you have. 
  • Investing in business education can give you an enormous advantage. Of course, you should always research mentors before spending money. The right one can hugely impact your success.


You don’t have to build from the ground up to own a successful business. 

[18:37] “You can stick another engine on the plane. You’ve got the organic stuff- your sales, your marketing. The other engine you can add is acquiring business to either give you the product, revenue, or the talent.”
