Former Wall Street insider reveals the shocking secret behind…

The Fast Fortune Formula

“If you want to get rich without taking a lot of risk… don’t gamble another penny in the stock market, buy a single piece of property, or start your own business. Do THIS instead!”

What do Sam Walton, Warren Buffet, and Howard Schultz all have in common?

Besides being some of the most successful businessmen in U.S. history…

Not a single one made their fortunes playing the startup game.

Instead, they all took a much safer route…

Before Sam Walton ever opened up his first Wal-Mart location…

He started out buying up Ben Franklin “five and dime” stores first.

Warren Buffet didn’t build Berkshire-Hathaway from the ground up.

He bought it. Along with every single other company in his portfolio.

Howard Schultz didn’t start Starbucks in his garage.

He bought the company and grew it into a multi-billion dollar fortune.

And if you’re looking for a fast, low-risk, and proven method for getting rich the easy way…

I’m urging you to stop taking stupid and unecessary risks on complete long shots…

Like startups, side hustles, penny stocks, cryptocurrencies, or some ridiculous “get rich quick” nonsense…

And start doing what the rich do instead.

Buy a business that’s already profitable…

Collect cash while other people grow it for you…

And then sell it for a huge 7-figure – or 8-figure – payday in a few years time.

Oh, and before you ask…

No, you DON’T need to be rich already to buy a high quality, cash flowing business that can run without you.

Because if you know how to use this little known financial strategy…

You can buy a profitable small business generating between $1 million to $5 million in annual sales…

Using NONE of your own personal savings…

Or personally guaranteeing any loans…

And you can do it in the next 99 days or less!

Which means you are literally taking ZERO personal risk for potentially unlimited potential gains.

Now, I’m not going to insult your intelligence and suggest you’re gonna pull this off without doing any work.

But here’s what I can promise you…

In this letter that you’re reading right now, I’m going to reveal…

  • The #1 thing holding you back from buying a profitable small business (hint: it has nothing to do with luck, hard work, how much money you have, who you know, or your college degree).
  • The five best types of businesses to buy if you’re looking to earn $10,000 to $25,000 per month… all while working less than 10 hours per week.
  • Why your personal credit score doesn’t matter AT ALL when buying a business… It’s all thanks to a unique financial strategy commonly used by the rich (but open to anyone, even if you have bad credit or no credit)…
  • What successful small business owners REALLY want when they sell their business… and why they’d rather sell it to an inexperienced outsider than a well-financed competitor.

But most importantly, I’m going to show you…

A step-by-step strategy for buying profitable small businesses in the next 99 days or less using none of your own money

And then selling it for a multi-million dollar payday in five years or less!

Now, I know that’s a huge promise…

But if you’re willing to keep an open mind…

What I’m about to reveal could change your life.

But first, a quick disclaimer…

#1) This is NOT a “get rich quick” scheme…

Or “do nothing, get paid.”

Buying, growing, and selling businesses requires REAL effort…

But I’ve never seen any other wealth creation method that works this fast and this reliably.

#2) You are NOT going to hear about this strategy anywhere else…

Not from your financial advisor…

Not from any formal education you’ve ever had…

And definitely not from random people on the internet who have no clue what they’re talking about.

Because the rich would rather you don’t know how this strategy works…

But I’ve already made my fortune using this strategy…

And I want to share it with people like you so you can have the same opportunity I did.

#3) Neither MY results nor my students results are typical.

Most people who learn the strategy I’m about to reveal here today DO NOT get results for one simple reason.

They don’t take action.

And the reason why more people aren’t doing this is because they refuse to believe it can work…

So they refuse to even try it.

In this letter, you’ll hear about several of my most successful students.

Most had no prior experience buying or selling businesses before meeting me…

Or for that matter, any prior experience as a business owner at all.

But they understood that buying, growing, and selling businesses is a skill.

And like any skill, it’s something you get better at with practice.

Most importantly though…

They were willing to get outside of their comfort zone…

Challenge themselves to try something new…

And instead of quitting when things get hard (like most people do)…

They decided to persist until they succeeded.

But before I tell you more about this secret investment strategy…

And how it can help you get rich faster than you ever thought possible…

I want to make sure you’re the kind of person I can actually help…

Does This Sound Like You?

Do you ever lie awake at night, worried about how much you have saved for retirement…

…and know if you don’t do something RIGHT NOW, it might be too late?

Are you sick and tired of working to grow someone else’s business…

…and you feel ready to be your own boss and own your own company?

Are you done with all the bullshit “make money online” promises from fake gurus on the internet…

…and are looking for a way to own a real company that can stand the test of time?

Are you tired of seeing other people who aren’t as smart as you making way more money than you do, working way less hard…

All because they own their own business…

And you have no idea how they’re doing it?

Do you feel like it’s your destiny to achieve something bigger with your life?

And you know the only way to get the freedom you need to pursue your passion in life is own your own business…

But you just can’t seem to figure out how to get from where you are now…

To becoming a business owner?

Well, let me tell you something important…

NONE of the things you think are holding you back from getting there are real.

The real problem?

You haven’t made “The Big Shifts.”

But once you make them…

You’ll become someone I like to call The Dealmaker CEO.

And once you become this new version of yourself…

You’ll know EXACTLY how to get everything you want in life, faster than you ever thought possible…

Because you’ll understand something I like to call “The Fast Fortune Formula

And once you do, you’ll know exactly…

  • How to buy high quality, cash flow producing businesses that can start paying you $10,000 – $25,000 per month… starting from the first day you own it.
  • How a little known investment strategy can help you buy a profitable small business using absolutely none of your own money…and protect yourself from taking ANY personal financial risk.
  • Which businesses are the RIGHT businesses to buy… and which ones you should avoid like the plague.
  • How to easily and effortlessly attract super-star managers who can run the businesses you buy for you.Which means you’ll be able to work ON the business instead of IN the business.
  • How to buy not just ONE amazing business… but instead, build a portfolio of businesses that can create the kind of wealth you can pass on for generations.
  • You’ll have a new vision for what’s possible for you… and why you don’t have to wait for another second longer to live the life you were destined to live.

And best of all…

You’ll be able to do it while working less than ten hours per week.

Which means if you’re currently trapped inside of a full time job…

You can do this on the side in your spare time while you plan your escape from the corporate rat race.

But in case you’re wondering who I am, and why you should listen to me…

Hi, I’m Carl Allen

I’m an entrepreneur, investor and corporate dealmaker with more than 26 years of business-buying experience.

I’ve bought (and sold) more than 300 businesses…

Both for myself and multi billion-dollar companies on Wall Street.

In total, I’ve closed more than $52 billion — yes, BILLION with a B — worth of deals…

These days…

I’m either the owner of – or an investor in – nine profitable small businesses in various locations all over the world.

I spent absolutely NONE of my own money to buy them…

And best of all, it takes less than 10 hours per week of my time to manage my entire portfolio of businesses.

But my passion and purpose in life is to help others…

Which is why I decided to start teaching others the art and science of dealmaking.

I’ve never seen a better opportunity to create massive wealth – and freedom – in such a short period of time.

And it’s a joy to see my students achieve their dreams of becoming a business owner…

Faster and easier than they ever thought possible.

So if that’s what you’re interested in learning how to do…

Then you’re in the right place.

Let me quickly tell you how I discovered what I call the “Big Shifts”…

Then I’ll walk you through what they are…

And how you can make them today and change your life forever.

As I said earlier, I spent the last 26 years of my life mastering the art and science of deal-making.

But it took me ALMOST missing the birth of my son to make these powerful shifts in my life.

You see…

I was working 100 hours a week as a Wall Street dealmaker.

And even though I was making a solid six-figure income…

My life was a complete wreck.

I felt depressed, anxious, and stressed out all the time.

I smoked too much, drank too much, gambled too much…

I was fat, unhappy, and my marriage was on its last legs.

But the moment I held my newborn son Josh in my arms…

I knew I had to leave all that behind and make some serious changes in my life.

And thanks to those changes…

I made my first million dollars in just 18 months after quitting my full time job

Now, I’ll admit I had an unfair advantage most people don’t start out with…

…more than a decade of experience as a corporate deal maker…

But over the past three years alone…

I’ve shared my proprietary 10-step business buying system…

Which is specifically designed to help everyday people buy a profitable small business without using any of their personal savings…

And without taking out any personal loans…

With more than 1,500 people.

And as soon as I started coaching and mentoring others…

I noticed some of my students were getting AMAZING results in a very short period of time…

And they had what I refer to as…

The Big Three: Income, Lifestyle, and Impact

They had the income they wanted…

Some of them were happy earning six figures per year…

But several were making six figures per month!

They had the lifestyle they wanted…

Which means they had the freedom to do whatever they wanted…

Whenever they wanted…

And most importantly, they were having the impact they wanted…

The work they were doing was actually changing people’s lives for the better.

So, I started studying these people…

Because I wanted to know what my top students were doing that everyone else wasn’t.

It turns out, they all made the five “Big Shifts” I’m going to share with you today.

So I started to incorporate what I saw into my training program…

And the results our students started to get were incredible.

Many former stressed-out employees are now proud business owners who have taken control of their time and their life…

And in this letter…

I’m going to pull back the curtain and show you exactly what they did to achieve such extraordinary success…

I’ll reveal the five BEST types of businesses to buy if you want to get massively wealthy in a short period of time…

Along with the five WORST types of businesses you need to avoid like the plague.

And most importantly…

How to buy a profitable small business without risking any of your own personal savings.

Pay very close attention to what I’m about to share with you today…

Because what I teach goes against just about everything you may have learned from the so called “gurus.”

Most of them are great at selling their courses on how to make money…

But are terrible dealmakers who have no clue what they’re talking about when it comes to building real wealth.

So if you’re ready to learn what it really takes to buy profitable small businesses using none of your own money…

And you’re ready to open your mind to a new reality of rapid wealth creation.

These are the five key shifts you MUST make if you want to stop working hard for your money…

And have your money work hard for you.

Let’s dive in…

Shift #1) People Before Profits

If you’re reading this letter right now…

I’m going to assume you’re a good-hearted human being who wants to help people.

And if you want to own a portfolio of highly profitable small businesses that run WITHOUT you…

You need to understand that you cannot be a selfish prick who treats people like crap.

Because here’s the truth about business…

Business is about relationships!

It’s about understanding and empathizing with other people…

…like your employees, your customers, your vendors, and your investors.

Because you can’t do this alone.

And if you want to attract super star managers into the business to run it for you…

If you want your employees to love working on your team and have super high retention rates…

And if you want to experience the true joy of entrepreneurship…

You MUST be willing to take full responsibility as the leader of that business.

Because most small businesses are like a family.

And if you want a great team of people who are committed to growing your business…

You need to realize that your job as the leader of the business is to help your team grow and develop…

Both personally and professionally.

Now, sadly, this is NOT how most people approach business.

Especially when you look at how dealmakers behave on Wall Street.

They’re usually looking for opportunities to maximize what’s called “shareholder value”…

Which almost always means firing a bunch of employees…

Strip mining the assets…

And getting as much money – as fast as possible – no matter what the long term consequences are.

Let me make one thing perfectly clear…

The Dealmaker CEO IS NOT some kind of evil corporate raider.

We ARE NOT here to steal someone’s business out from under them and destroy their legacy…

Instead we believe in…

The Power of Noble Capitalism

Which means when we buy a business…

The goal is to provide a better life for everyone who works on our team.

Create great jobs that give people a sense of mission and purpose…

Build a culture that values integrity, well-being, and growth…

And maintain a work environment that provides work-life balance for our employees.

Because you can’t build a great company alone…

You build great people, and those people build a great company with you.

And when you focus on making your people happy…

Your people can focus on making your customers happy.

Which means everyone gets to win.

And when I look back on my life…

I want to feel good about how I earned my money.

And I never want the people who work for me to feel like they’re replaceable cogs in some corporate machine.

Which is why my number one rule for success is to always put people before profits.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering…

This shift is the single biggest competitive advantages you can create for yourself.

Here’s what I mean…

A few years back, I contacted 1,921 people who’d recently sold their businesses… and I asked them a simple question.

When you decided to sell your business, what factors were most important to you?

And despite what most people believe…

It’s NOT money!

Do they want money?

Sure, we all do…

But their biggest priority is safeguarding their legacy.

They’re proud of the business they worked their entire lives to build…

And they feel a great sense of loyalty to the people who helped them build it.

Which is why they want to pass it on to someone who will act as a safe pair of hands.

They want someone who is going to take care of their business.

And believe it or not…

When faced with the choice of selling to an all cash buyer with loads of business experience…

But who will ruin their company…

Or sell it to someone like you, who is using the “no-money-down” business buying strategy I’m going to reveal to you today…

They’ll more than likely pick you.

And I can speak from experience on this one…

In 2011, I was negotiating a deal with a multi-billion dollar corporation to buy one of their smaller companies…

We were competing against several huge – and well funded – players…

But the business being sold had been around since the 1930’s…

And the parent company didn’t want to see it get ripped up, have the assets stripped, and employees let go.

So, instead of selling it to one of their competitors who could pay all cash…

They sold an $18 million dollar business to us, complete outsiders, and for $0 down (more on how this works later).

So, a quick summary of the first shift you need to make if you want to become a Dealmaker CEO

And start buying profitable small businesses using none of your own personal savings.

The strength of your character is the single most important factor in any deal.

Do you treat people with kindness and respect, in all situations?

Do you operate with total integrity, and do the things you say you will?

Do you lead by example?

Because if you do, you’ll go far in business… and in life.

And if you don’t… it’s never too late to start being a better person.

Alright, let’s move on to…

Shift #2) Become Irrationally Optimistic

If you want to earn millions of dollars over the next few years…

You need to believe that it’s not only possible to do…

But it’s possible for YOU to do it.

“I always knew I was going to be rich. I don’t think I ever doubted it for a minute.” – Warren Buffett

Here’s what I mean.

Despite what most people want you to believe…

Most wealthy people did not inherit their money, win the lottery, or “get lucky.”

According to a 2017 survey from Fidelity Investments…

88 percent of millionaires are self-made… meaning they are first generation wealth.

And according to the famous book, The Millionaire Next Door

“In America, fewer than one in five households, or about 18 percent, is headed by a self-employed business owner or professional. But these self-employed people are four times more likely to be millionaires than those who work for others.”

Now, we already know that it’s risky STARTING a new business…

Which is why I recommend you BUY a business instead of starting one from scratch…

But if you want to create huge wealth for yourself in a short period of time…

It’s important to talk about the word “risk”…

And what taking risk really means.

You see…

Millionaires have a much different belief systems when it comes to taking risks.

They think it’s risky to work for someone else.

You could get laid off.

Your boss could make a bad decision that hurts you financially.

So, they do what MOST people are afraid to do…

They choose to believe in themselves instead of letting someone else decide their income.

Because they want to be in control of their own destiny…

And they go after it with everything they’ve got.

And good things happen when you go all in on yourself.

How do I know this?

Because I’m living proof.

How I went from miserable employee to wealthy business owner

When I was working on Wall Street as a corporate deal maker, I was making about $300,000 per year.

But the price I paid for that income was enormous.

I was working 100 hour weeks, sleeping on planes, and destroying my health and well being.

Once I quit, and started buying businesses for myself…

I earned $1 million in my first 18 months out on my own…

And I did it working less than 10 hours per week.

Now, I’m not in any way implying that you will make $1 million in the next 18 months if you follow my proven business buying strategy…

But there’s about a 0% chance it’s going to happen if you don’t even believe it’s possible.

Which is why your mindset IS the difference that makes a difference.

And I know this might sound like some new age “woo woo” nonsense…

But you are capable of so much more than you realize.

And the only thing holding you back from achieving it?

Fear, uncertainty, and doubt.

Now, I’m not saying you shouldn’t have a healthy dose of skepticism…

But if you’re always looking for reasons why something won’t work…

…like buying a small business in the next 99 days or less using none of your own money…

It won’t matter how many case studies or examples I show you…

Or examples of how some of my students overcame impossible odds to achieve success…

You’ll still think what I’m saying isn’t possible.

Or worse, you’ll say I’m a liar or a scam artist.

Because you think your circumstances are somehow special.

Don’t believe me?

Here’s one of my craziest success stories from someone who went…

From broke dishwasher to million dollar business owner

A few years ago…

A man named Geoffrey Roberts watched one of my training webinars…

And he, like many people, sent me a long email about the various challenges he was currently facing in his life.

It was like the “greatest hits” of possible bad shit that could happen to someone.

Long story short, he had been reduced to bagging groceries due to his hardships, so he didn’t have the money to enroll in my course.

But he still wanted me to mentor him for free.

Now, I normally ignore requests like this…

Because I still run a business and I can’t give stuff away for free to anyone who asks.

But he was persistent.

So, after months of me telling him no…

I finally caved and decided to take a chance on him.

I didn’t have much hope he’d get any results…

But he was determined to succeed.

And most importantly, he had unshakable confidence in himself.

Even though I was skeptical about his chances of success…

Nine months later, he closed a deal on a business doing $1 million in annual revenue…

Using none of his own money.

Again, obvious disclaimer…

Geoffrey worked his ass off, and it did take him longer than 99 days to close his first deal.

But he did what most people aren’t willing to do.

He saw an opportunity to change his life for the better…

And refused to quit until he achieved it.

Because it’s not enough to simply “believe in yourself”…

You have to be willing to take action when you see opportunities.

Which brings us to…

Shift #3) Look for Opportunity Everywhere

Here’s the thing you need to understand about the most successful business owners, entrepreneurs, and investors.

They are CONSTANTLY searching for opportunities.

Because opportunities are EVERYWHERE.

And more importantly…

They have a system in place that helps them quickly qualify, screen, and execute on only the BEST opportunities.

Let’s talk about the first part…

We’re about to witness the single greatest transfer of wealth in the history of our species.

Accenture reports that over the next 30 to 40 years, $30 trillion in assetswill pass from boomers to their heirs in the United States alone.

And the greatest part of America’s wealth lies with family-owned businesses.

According to the US Census Bureau, family owned businesses make up 90 percent of all business enterprises in North America.

Even crazier…

Family businesses account for 64 percent of U.S. gross domestic product…

They generate 62 percent of the country’s employment…

And they account for 78 percent of all new job creation

Long story short…

Family owned businesses are the backbone of the American economy.

But there’s a rather startling trend…

Parents usually want to pass on their business to their children.

But more and more, children are saying “no thanks.”

And without a family succession plan in place…

More and more business owners are being forced to either sell their business to an outside buyer…

Or shut it down completely…

And miss out on the promised payday that would fund their retirement.

There are 2,662,287 small businesses for sale

Today, in…

Only 1 in 13 will sell… In the next 12 months!!

And as 10,000 Baby Boomers retire every single day in America alone…

It means there are no shortage of highly motivated sellers who are willing to unload their business…

To the right person…

And would be more than happy to accept a deal that doesn’t require you to put any of your own money at risk.

But now comes the question…

With so much opportunity…

How do you decide which ones to pursue?

Well, the answer is pretty simple…

Before I’ll EVER consider buying a business, it has to check all five boxes of what I call…

The Perfect Business Checklist

On day one of me owning it, the business needs to have…

  1. Enough cash flow… to pay me a $10,000 – $25,000 per month salary
  2. An existing management team… who can run the day to day operations
  3. Scalable fulfillment and delivery systems… so I can grow the business quickly
  4. A stable customer base… so I can be sure the revenue won’t dry up as soon as I take over.
  5. Assets I can use to finance the purchase… so I don’t have to use any of my own money.

Now, in just a moment…

I’m going to get a lot more specific and tell you which five sectors I think are the BEST places to buy a business in…

And which five sectors I think are the WORST…

But before we get into that…

I want to make sure you understand how it’s even possible to buy a business using none of your own money.

And yes, the strategy I’m about to share with you is completely legal…

But in order for you to use this unique strategy…

You need to understand something I like to call…

The Fast Fortune Formula

And once you understand how this “formula” works…

You’ll literally be able to make money appear out of thin air.

Here’s what I mean…

Once upon a time, the US was on something called the gold standard.

Which meant every single dollar in circulation needed to be backed by real, physical gold.

But as you may already know…

On August 15th, 1971, President Richard Nixon took America off the gold standard.

And once that happened, the new era of infinite credit began.

Now, I won’t bore you with forty years of banking industry history…

Bitch and complain about Central Banks and fiat currency…

Or ramble on about conspiracy theory level clap trap…

But long story short…

The financial services industry basically prints money thanks to this secret “formula”.

Here’s how it works.

  1. They borrow money from other people at a low rate
  2. Buy investments that pay more than their cost to borrow (like a business)
  3. Pocket the profit

Basically, they make tons and tons of money moving numbers from one column to another.

Now, whether or not you think this is fair… it’s the current reality of the global financial system.

And if you want to make the system work for you…

You need to learn how to use this little known “formula” used by financiers around the globe.

Because the only way to buy a small business without using any of your own money is to use someone else’s.

Which is exactly what we’re going to talk about next.

How to Buy a Business
Using Other People’s Money

Now, as the saying goes, there’s lots of ways to skin a cat…

But when it comes to buying a business using none of your own money…

The best way to do it is a strategy called a Leveraged Buyout…

Or LBO for short.

It’s a hugely popular Wall Street strategy that’s been used by legendary investors…

Like Warren Buffett, Carl Icahn, and T. Boone Pickens.

And thanks to my many years as a Wall Street dealmaker…

I learned how to use this strategy to finance mega, multi-billion dollar deals…

Both buying and selling businesses for my Wall Street clients.

Now, in case you’re wondering…

Yes, when you’re doing multi-billion dollar deals…

They are extremely complex and require an army of highly skilled financial professionals and lawyers.

But we’re not looking to do deals anywhere near that size.

Instead, we want to target businesses that are inside what I call the “LBO Sweet Spot”…

Which are businesses generating between $1 million and $5 million in annual revenue.

Now, the more experience you get as a deal maker…

The easier it will be for you to successfully do deals above the $5 million mark…

But when you’re just starting out, I highly recommend starting in this sweet spot for three main reasons…

Reason #1) Anything below $1 million…

You’ll usually find the owner owns a JOB and not a business.

Now, there are always exceptions to this…

But in general, if they haven’t crossed the million dollar mark…

They don’t have the right systems and processes in place.

And more importantly…

They don’t have a management team in place who can run it for you once you buy it.

Which means you’d be stuck doing a lot of hard work before you could step away.

Reason #2) As you start to approach $5 million, and definitely when you approach $10 million…

You’re going to have a lot more competition from other buyers who can pay a LOT more than you can.

Which is why I recommend you avoid those larger sized deals until you’ve got some more experience as a dealmaker.

The goal here is to buy a business doing between $1 million and $5 million in revenue…

And grow it to the $10 million level and beyond.

Which means we’ll be able to sell our business to those same deep pocketed buyers we’d otherwise be competing against.

Reason #3) Deals inside the LBO Sweet Spot are WAY less complicated from a math and numbers standpoint.

And this should make logical sense as to why…

Big companies have tons of assets and loads of items on their balance sheet.

But when you’re working inside of the LBO Sweet Spot

There’s less stuff you have to account for.

I’m not joking when I say this…

If you can do 5th grade math, you can handle the financials on a deal of this size.

But there’s another important factor that makes smaller deals so much better.

You’re almost always negotiating with the owner directly, and not a highly sophisticated dealmaking team.

Which means having great rapport with the seller…

And understanding their motivations to sell…

Is way more important than the numbers.

In fact, I’d estimate 90% of your success will come down to understanding seller psychology…

And only 10% will come from the actual numbers portion.

Now, I’m going to come back and tell you more about seller psychology in just a minute…

But before I do, let me explain in a bit more detail…

How an LBO Works

If you’re at all familiar with buying real estate using a no money down investing strategy…

It works pretty much the same way.

You put the business under contract…

And then you leverage the assets inside the business to borrow money to buy the business.

I know that might sound a little bit crazy…

But yes, this means you are going to pay the seller for his business… using his own business.

Oh, before you ask…

No, you don’t need to personally guarantee any of this money.

Because you are using the BUSINESS to borrow the money.

Your personal credit history is completely irrelevant…

And it also means worst case scenario… if the business you buy goes bankrupt… you won’t be personally liable.

Pretty neat right?

It looks like this…

Let’s assume you are buying a business valued at $1 million.

The payment for the business is split into two parts.

Part 1 is what’s known as a closing payment.

That’s cash the seller gets the day you close the deal and take ownership.

Now, in most cases, the seller wants some form of closing payment…

Even if it’s just a token amount to cover his or her closing costs and take a well earned vacation.

When there is a closing payment required, you can usually pay the owner cash from the business…

And you’re going to raise money by borrowing against some combination of the following three things…

  1. Accounts Receivables –This is money owed to the company for any services already performed or products already delivered. If you’ve ever seen an invoice that has something like “payment terms: net 30”… that’s what this is.
  2. Equipment – Generally speaking, this is anything the business owns that is used to provide services or make products. This could be vehicles, computers, tools, and any kind of machinery that makes stuff.
  3. Inventory – This is anything the business sells to its customers.

In some cases, you end up raising more cash for closing than you actually need.

That’s called a surplus.

You can take it out for yourself if you want…

Leave it in the business for expansion…

Buy more equipment…

Hire more people or increase your marketing budget…

It’s up to you.

Part 2, which is the rest of the deal, is paid for using the future cash flows of the business.

That’s called seller financing or vendor financing.

Which means you are using the businesses own future cash flow to pay out the business owner over some pre-negotiated period of time.

And in case you’re wondering WHY a business owner would be willing to let you do this…

It’s pretty simple.

As I mentioned earlier…

Only 1 in 13 businesses for sale will sell this year…

Which means most business owners who want to sell aren’t able to do so…

Unless… they are willing to extend certain terms to buyers like us who want to buy their business.

Now…

This DOES NOT mean we are looking to buy crappy businesses…

And this DOES NOT mean we want to cheat someone out of the money they deserve.

In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

We want to pay a fair price for high quality businesses…

But we are looking for a seller who – for whatever reason – is motivated to sell…

And would otherwise be unable to get the price he (or she) wants without these sorts of terms.

Here’s what I mean.

Take the same identical business, in the same town, with the same profits, with the same customers, same products and services…

100% identical in every way…

Except for the owner.

One is a young entrepreneur in his 30’s, having a lot of fun, and loving life.

That person may not want to sell…

But if he does, he’s going to want more money for the business, and most of the money up front for the business.

This is not our target seller!

Our target is someone who wants to retire, or is frustrated, is burning out, and is highly motivated to sell.

And motivated sellers are willing to sell for much less…

AND…

They’re willing to take most of the payment over time.

Very cool right?

And that’s the big picture overview of how an LBO works.

But you might be wondering…

Which types of businesses does this strategy work best on?

Well, I’m gonna tell you what those are in just a minute…

But first, let me tell you what the five WORST ones are.

The 5 Worst Businesses to Buy

Alright so remember…

We need to have a business that has enough cash flow – or other assets – to borrow money against to finance the deal…

Which means we need businesses with solid profit margins and quality assets.

And this almost instant disqualifies MOST retail – or business to consumer – businesses most people think about buying.

Businesses like…

  1. Coffee Shops/Retail Stores
  2. Restaurants/Bars
  3. Hotels
  4. Franchises
  5. Amazon Businesses

I know it’s the American dream to own something like a restaurant or a bar or a coffee shop or a retail store…

But please, just don’t.

They are highly volatile…

Have low margin…

Are highly employee dependant (chefs are typically not the easiest people in the world to manage)…

And far too restricted by their location.

Another problem deal is a hotel.

The issue here is how a hotel business is valued.

90% of the purchase price will be determined by the actual real estate…

And only 10% comes from the “trading business” (i.e. the thing that accepts money).

Don’t forget about the The Fast Fortune Formula

  1. Borrow money from other people at a low rate
  2. Buy investments that pay more than their cost to borrow (like a business)
  3. Pocket the profit

Which means we need cash flow from whatever investment we are buying to cover the costs of borrowing.

The math almost never works out in our favor on these types of deals, so I recommend avoiding them completely…

Unless you’re a very skilled real estate investor and understand that business well (which I am not).

Franchises are usually suckers bets…

On the surface, buying a franchise seem like a great opportunity…

You get to leverage an existing brand name…

Standard operating procedures…

And (hopefully) a corporate legal team who can help you out when you need it…

But when you add up the costs, they’re usually NOT worth buying.

Here’s why…

Franchises have all sorts of hidden costs, fine print, and “regulations” about how you operate (and grow) your business…

Which means you’re not REALLY a business owner with true freedom.

You’re a franchisee who is beholden to a corporate overlord.

For example, franchise owners are often forced to use franchisor suppliers…

And other costs are typically inflated to pad the pockets of the people who started the original franchise.

Plus, franchises often come with high fees and charges based on a percentage of revenue and/or profit.

And from a business buying perspective, if someone buys a franchise then wants to sell it…

They always want to sell it for more than they paid for it (shocking, right?).

With that being said…

This doesn’t mean OWNING a franchise is a bad idea.

But generally speaking…

It’s better for you to start your own location than to buy an existing franchised business…

OR…

You’ll want to buy a BUNCH of the same franchise in one mega-deal.

[Note: this called a roll up, which is a different topic for a different day]

But in my opinion and experience…

If you’re looking to BUY a profitable business that generates solid cash flow and gives you lots of freedom…

I’d recommend avoiding franchises altogether…

And buy an independent business instead.

Now, let’s talk about online businesses…

Although I love the freedom and flexibility an ecommerce company provides…

I hate deals that are overly dependent on Amazon.

Why?

Because Amazon controls your customer relationship, not you.

And that opens you up to a huge amount of risk that I’m not interested in taking.

By all means look at online deals…

But filter out the ones that are Amazon dependant.

They’re terrible businesses to own.

Alright, now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about…

The 5 Best Businesses to Buy

  1. Manufacturing & Engineering
  2. Transportation & Warehousing
  3. Ecommerce (non Amazon FBA)
  4. IT Services
  5. Business Services

Let’s start with the first one…

Manufacturing & Engineering

If you have absolutely no idea what kind of business you’d like to own…

I’d highly recommend you start here.

Here’s why…

  • It’s full of distressed, Baby Boomer owners who are looking to exit their business and retire…which is a perfect fit for our seller psychology.
  • These types of businesses have strong assets, great margins, and solid cash flows… which means it’s relatively easy to get financing to buy the business…
  • There’s LOTS of these deals available…which means you have a great negotiating position.
  • The businesses have strong customer and employee loyalty… which means your chances of revenue and profitability going down when you take it over are low.
  • And they’re very hard to duplicate as a start up… which means you have a solid moat around the business that protects you from competition
  • And most do little to no marketing…which means you have a massive opportunity for growth!

Even better…

You can usually find a business that aligns with something you’re passionate about.

For example…

Are you really passionate about cars?

You can probably find a business that manufactures parts of some kind.

How about surfing?

One of my students bought a company that sells a device that helps prevent shark attacks.

Maybe you love travel?

Tons of companies sell travel and tourism related gadgets, widgets, and things… and someone needs to make it.

And don’t forget…

All of that physical stuff needs to be stored and shipped out to the customers who buy it…

Which brings us to…

Transportation & Warehousing

This is another fantastic business to own.

Think about it…

Even though we live in a digital era…

The backbone of the global economy requires stuff – and people – to be moved from one place to another.

In 2018, the trucking industry was worth more than $796.7 billion dollars in the US alone…

And with all that stuff being produced and shipped…

There is even more demand for somewhere to store it.

Wouldn’t it be nice to own a piece of that action?

But the opportunity doesn’t stop there…

Because all of that stuff being manufactured and shipped has to get sold somehow, right?

Which is why I absolutely love…

Ecommerce businesses

You probably don’t need me to tell you this…

But ecommerce has exploded over the past ten years…

And it shows no sign of slowing down.

Best of all…

When you own an ecommerce based business…

You have so much more opportunity to scale and reach a national – or even international – market place.

As I mentioned earlier…

AVOID buying any business that is heavily dependent on Amazon.

The most valuable asset your business owns is the relationship with its customers.

Make sure you have control over it!

Speaking of controlling your own data…

One of the biggest opportunities going forward is…

IT Services

If you own a business – especially an online based business – technology is not a “nice to have”…

It’s a must have!

And that means there is a massive opportunity to sell all kinds of services that help companies create, manage, and deliver information…

As well as other important business functions.

Not to mention the huge demand for data security and privacy.

But guess what?

Most of this is moving to “the cloud” these days…

And that means someone owns the hardware and software these companies need to stay competitive…

Along with a whole pile of consulting services required to implement – and manage – the growing technology needs.

Oh, and the profit margins are insane.

Speaking of consulting, let’s talk about…

Business Services

More and more companies are choosing to shed the cost of in house teams…

And turn to highly specialized, external consultants to help with their specific needs.

I’d definitely look hard at industries like digital marketing, PR, and financial services.

You could also consider the more traditional professional services firms like lawyers, accountants, architects, and engineering services…

But they tend to have more complicated regulatory and licencing issues that business consulting firms often don’t have.

Okay, so quick recap so far…

We’ve talked about the first three shifts you need to make to become a Dealmaker CEO…

  1. People Before Profits – Your business depends on having great people run it for you. So take care of them and they will take care of your business.
  2. Always be Searching for Opportunities – because opportunities are everywhere if you’re willing to look for them.

  3. Become Irrationally Optimistic – In order to win in the game of business and life, you need to believe you can. And you’ll need to believe it before you get to see it.

On day one of me owning it, the business needs to have…

We also talked about the Perfect Business Checklist

  1. Enough cash flow to pay me a $10k – $25k/month salary
  2. An existing management team who can run the day to day operations so I don’t have to
  3. Scalable fulfillment and delivery systems so I can grow the business quickly
  4. Stable customer base so I can be sure the revenue won’t dry up as soon as I take over
  5. Assets I can use to finance the purchase so I don’t have to use any of my own money.

And we’ve also covered the five WORST businesses to buy…

Along with the five BEST businesses to buy.

But why buy only one profitable small business when you can build a whole portfolio of them?

Well, in order to do that…

You need to understand that the amount of money you make has very little to do with how many hours you work.

It’s all about getting leverage on the time you do have.

Earlier in this letter…

I promised you I’d give you a step-by-step strategy for buying a profitable small businesses…

And then selling it for a multi-million payday in five years or less!

We’ve already talked about how my proven, “no-money-down” business buying strategy works…

But you might be wondering how you’re supposed to grow the company once you buy it…

Especially if you don’t have a lot (or any) experience in business.

The answer is surprisingly simple.

We are going to grow the company using something I like to call…

Shift #4) Use Acquisition Magic

But before I tell you how Acquisition Magic works…

Let’s talk about why it’s usually a dumb idea to focus your attention on growing the business organically.

Here’s what I mean…

Most business owners don’t think like a Dealmaker CEO.

Because all their life…

They’ve been trained to believe the amount of money they make is directly connected with how many hours they work.

Which is why most people have such a hard time believing it’s possible to make an absurd amount of money working less than 10 hours per week.

And it’s why most “business owners” don’t own a business…

They own a job.

And even worse…

There’s all these posers on the internet teaching people about business who don’t know what the f— they’re talking about.

Which is why most people think they need to invest a lot of time and money on things like…

Research and development to build new products…

Hiring and training new staff…

And generating new customers.

Now, I’m not saying organic growth is bad…

And I’m not saying you shouldn’t look for opportunities to grow organically…

But generally speaking…

Organic growth is long, hard, frustrating, and slow.

And I don’t know about you…

But I’d rather grow my companies – and my net worth – the quick, fast, easy, and fun way.

Which is why I prefer to grow my business portfolio using something I like to call…

Acquisition Magic

And if you do it correctly…

You can – literally overnight – multiple the revenue of your company…

And dramatically increase your profit margins…

Simply because you bought a business and bolted it on to your existing one.

Now, obviously there’s a little bit more that goes into performing Acquisition Magic than just snapping your fingers and making money…

But this is why a Dealmaker CEO can earn so much money and create so much wealth in such a short period of time.

They leave all the day to day operations of the business to their team…

And focus all of their time, energy, and attention on doing the only three activities a Dealmaker CEO should be doing…

They are…

  1. Mergers & Joint Ventures: This is when two companies merge to form a new corporation or partnership.
  2. Acquisitions: This is when one company buys another one.
  3. Exits: This is when you sell a business.

And this is all you should be doing too.

Let’s discuss in more detail.

Mergers & Joint Ventures

Mergers have been a massive wealth driver in the global economy since the dawn of time.

It’s the classic 1 + 1 = 3 model.

If you own a business and you have gaps, weaknesses or opportunities you cannot fill alone…

Go partner with another business and do it together.

You can either do this through something called a joint venture…

Which is when two (or more) businesses agree to work together, but retain their individual identities.

Or you can combine the businesses into one new entity…

And then split the ownership and governance in whatever way makes the most sense.

You get more revenues, cash flow, market share, synergies, efficiencies and most importantly…

A bigger valuation, practically overnight (more on this in a minute).

One of the best parts about mergers and joint ventures is that there are no financing needs involved.

You are just gluing two businesses together.

Now let’s talk about…

Acquisitions

This is when your business buys another business outright.

Just like with mergers, acquisitions can create three huge benefits for you as the Dealmaker CEO

  1. You generate more revenue faster
  2. You generate more cash flow faster
  3. You have instant access to new employees and managers who can run the day to day operations

Also like in a merger, when two or more businesses come together…

Acquisition Magic happens!

Let’s say you own a software company and have an existing customer base to supply.

Let’s also say your existing customers want to buy IT services from you…

But you don’t have that capability, so you can’t sell it to them.

Rather than go through the headaches of an internal startup…

You buy an IT services business instead.

And just like that, you can now sell your existing customers the IT services they already want to buy…

And you can sell your software to the existing customers of the IT services company you just bought.

Thanks to Acquisition Magic

You can literally double the revenue of your business overnight!

Also, when you combine two or more businesses, there are cost savings (also called “synergies”).

Basically, you can eliminate duplicate costs and redundancies in the business…

Like office space, maintenance, utilities, administration, certain jobs, HR…

And you’ll have greater economies of scale with suppliers because you’re now a larger business.

It’s a 1+1 = 5 on the profit side.

And since a multiple of profit is the most common way to value a business…

Thanks to Acquisition Magic

You can literally 5X your business valuation from just one acquisition.

But let’s talk about arguably the most important thing you do as the Dealmaker CEO

Exits

Remember…

The ONLY reason to buy a business is to sell it for a big fat payday…

And as the Dealmaker CEO

Your job is to focus all your time, energy, and attention on growing the business…

And preparing it for an eventual sale.

The sale price is going to be driven by two things…

1) The Value – which is often determined by what’s known as EBITDA, or “earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.”

Or as Warren Buffet puts it…

“Earnings before all the bad stuff happens.”

It’s the most common way to figure out how well the company performs without doing a lot of hard math.

2) The Multiple –which is a multiplier you apply to a specific metric of a company. This is how you come up with how much the business can be sold for…

And that metric is most commonly EBITDA.

Your Job as Dealmaker CEO is to
Increase the Value and Increase the Multiple

Which, as you now know, will happen through Acquisition Magic.

It looks something like this…

The first thing you need to do is buy a business.

Next, you look for opportunities to grow the business by bolting on new companies…

After that, you increase revenue and profit margins through cross selling and synergies.

… which will increase both the total value of the business as well as the multiple of profit you can ask for.

And finally…

Groom the business for sale, and make your exit.

Which, if you do it right, could take you…

From $0 to $5 Million in 5 Years or Less

And that’s actually a pretty conservative number.

Here’s an example…

Now, if you remember this chart from earlier…

I recommend you focus on buying businesses in the LBO Sweet Spot…

Which are businesses doing between $1 million and $5 million in annual revenue.

Let’s say you are terrible at this and can only manage to buy a business at the bottom of the LBO Sweet Spot

…which is a business doing $1 million in annual revenue…

Has an EBITDA (or value) of $150,000…

…which means it has a 15% profit margin…

And we buy it at a 3x multiple…

…which would make the total purchase price $450,000.

Now, remember…

We aren’t spending a dime of our own money to buy this business.

Which means we are starting at $0 invested.

And it also means to earn $5 million in profit…

We need to sell this business for $5 million.

I know that sounds like a big number…

But I promise you it’s not.

So, stay with me here.

Now, let’s also assume our employees are pretty terrible and they drive no organic growth…

…and we are ONLY growing through Acquisition Magic.

Here’s what this could look like…

In the first year of owning the business…

You don’t make any new acquisitions, and instead spend a lot of time learning about the business you bought.

Then, in the second year…

You decide to go buy another $1 million company…

And again, using none of your own money to do it…

You bolt it on to the one you already have.

Which means you just grew the business from $1 million in annual revenue to $2 million with one very small deal.

In the third year…

You decide to set your sights a little bit higher and decide to buy a business doing $2,000,000 million per year.

Which means you doubled your business again…

From $2 million to $4 million.

And thanks to Acquisition Magic

You can increase your profit margins from 15% to 25% thanks to cost reduction and synergies.

Which means your business is generating $4 million in annual revenue…

And is generating $1 million per year in profit.

Which means the value of your business is now $1 million.

But remember…

The actual price you can sell the business is determined by the multiple.

And I would say it’s a very conservative estimate to assume if you grew the revenue from $1 million to $4 million in three years…

AND you increased the annual profits from $150,000 to $1 million…

Assuming a 5x multiple is more than fair.

And if you multiply $1 million by five…

That’s a $5 million valuation!

Now, remember…

You’ve put no money into this deal, which means…

You just made $5 million in profit!

And that doesn’t even include the annual salary you’d be paying yourself along the way!

Oh and in case you’re wondering…

A 5x multiple is just the minimum!

Depending on what industry you are in…

You could sell your business for a 10x multiple or higher.

And if you’ve seen some of the higher profile acquisitions on Wall Street…

Sometimes the multiples are pure insanity.

Microsoft acquired Skype Communications for $8.56 billion… which was an 82x multiple.

When I was working as a dealmaker for HP…

I helped acquire a company called Mercury Interactive for a cool $4.5 billion… which was a 44x multiple.

Johnson and Johnson got really tired of a really small competitor called Acclarent…

And decided to take them out of the equation and buy them for $785 million… which was a 63x multiple.

And the Facebook / WhatsApp deal just defies all logic.

They paid an estimated $16 billion… which was something like a 1,000x multiple.

And in case you’re looking at those numbers and you think…

“That’s just not possible for me to build a company that big…”

Well, there’s nothing preventing you from…

Building Your Own Empire

Meet my friend Imran Hakim.

He’s an optician by trade in the UK…

And decided he wanted to go big.

But that meant he was going to have to compete against the three big chains that dominated 50% of the UK optical market.

So, instead of trying to grow his business organically…

He started buying up independently owned optometrist practices instead.

He understood that many of these independently owned practices did not want to sell out to one of the big boys…

And wanted a safe pair of hands to pass their business on to.

So he decided to become that safe pair of hands.

According to his website, he currently owns 43 optometry practices.

And thanks to the streamlined backoffice he’s created…

Once he buys a practice, he can often immediately double – or triple – the profits of every practice.

PLUS…

He now has massive buying power that helps him save money on materials… like frames and lenses.

And just like you…

He started out with zero businesses in his portfolio.

But there’s one more shift you need to make to truly become a Dealmaker CEO…

Shift #5) Invest in Mentoring

Have you ever heard that you’re the average of your five closest friends?

Well, Dealmaker CEOs take this idea very seriously.

Which is why they are ALWAYS looking to build relationships with people who have achieved the kind of success they want to achieve…

And are ALWAYS looking for the very best coaches and mentors to help them get there faster.

Now, just to set the record straight…

I don’t care if you buy anything from me today.

But if you’re serious about transforming your life…

And you don’t waste years of your life trying to figure this out on your own…

Find a mentor.

Find someone you look up to and respect… and spend whatever it takes to learn from them.

Every single time I’ve spent money on masterminds and mentors…

Even though it might have been a tough pill to swallow to admit I needed help…

The return on my investment has ALWAYS been worth it.

Which is why I recently invested more than six-figure to work with Tony Robbins.

And even the masterminds and programs I’ve invested in that weren’t all that good…

ALL of them paid off in one way or another.

Sometimes quickly…

And sometimes it happens years later because I met someone or learned something at the right time.

But here’s the deal about being a dealmaker…

If you want to earn a substantial sum of money working less than part time…

If you want to be “the man” (or woman) who sits at the top of the food chain and calls all the shots…

If you want to enjoy true freedom and live the life where you get to do whatever you want, whenever you want…

You must develop the habit – and skill – of making decisions.

Because this is your life.

And its 100% up to you to make your life the way you want it to be.

But the single biggest reason why most people are stuck in jobs they hate…

And feel resentful of people who are more successful than they are…

Is because it reminds them they didn’t have the courage to bet on themselves…

And trust they’d figure it out along the way.

And when an opportunity comes along that isn’t “guaranteed” to work…

They’d rather do nothing than risk making the wrong decision.

Which is the worst decision of all.

But if you want to live the life of a Dealmaker CEO…

You HAVE to be comfortable making decisions!

Because most of our important decisions in life have a timeline.

And more often than not…

We usually have to make these decisions under a lot of pressure, with limited information, and no guarantee of results.

And if we delay making the decision, the opportunity could be gone forever.

But remember…

My strategy is designed to protect you from taking any personal – or financial – risk!

And I want to make you a “risk-free” offer to try my system out for yourself…

So you can have the opportunity to experience the results first hand.

Which is why I want to make you an offer so good…

You won’t have to think twice about saying yes.

Here’s the deal…

More than anything, I want you to be my next success story.

I want so badly for you buy a profitable small business using absolutely NONE of your own money…

In the next 99 days or less.

And I want you to enjoy the freedom I enjoy as a Dealmaker CEO.

But that won’t happen unless you sign up for my flagship training program…

I promise I’m not exaggerating when I say this…

As a dealmaker consultant… you can charge anywhere between $25,000–50,000 for your upfront retainer fee…

PLUS! You can get paid what’s called a “success fee” when the deal closes.

So, if you’re worried you don’t have enough business experience to run the business yourself…

Or you want to get paid extraordinarily well while you hone your dealmaking skill set…

You’re going to love this training.

But!

To be an effective dealmaker…

You’re going to want to know a few crucial business buying strategies.

Which is why you’ll ALSO be getting…

Bonus #2: Bolt-On Acquisitions Training
(a $1,997 value)

This has to be one of my favorite dealmaking strategies…

Here’s how it works.

Let’s say you (or a client of yours) owns a business… and you want to turbocharge growth.

You can either grow the business organically…

OR…

You can just buy a complementary business that serves the same customer base.

But those aren’t the only kinds of deals you might wind up doing…

Which is why you’ll ALSO be getting…

Bonus #3: Distressed Deals (a $997 value)

Now, I normally recommend you buy a great business from a distressed seller…

Meaning the business is operational, has existing cash flow and is going to be easy to take over.

But sometimes, you’ll find businesses selling at fire-sale prices because they’re in bad shape.

And if you (or your client) has a great business in one sector already…

It can make a lot of sense to take over another business in the same sector that is failing.

Why?

Because you can absorb all of their customers (and whatever else is worth keeping) and plug it right into the business that works!

But remember:

The ONLY reason we’re buying businesses is to build them and sell them for a fat payday.

And you want to make sure you know EXACTLY how to get the business ready to sell for MAXIMUM profit.

Which is why I’ll also be including…

Bonus #4: Ready, Prep, Sell ($597 value)

Want to know the single biggest reason why great businesses don’t sell for top dollar?

It’s because they aren’t properly prepared to sell.

Just like selling a home…

You’ll get a lot more money if it’s properly staged, it has nice curb appeal, and everything is in working order.

In this module, I’ll show you exactly what you need to do to find buyers who are willing to pay a great price…

And hopefully, give you the biggest payday of your life!
