#245 - Chad Peterson gets REAL about Selling your Business to the Right Buyer

Be Real Show

What Happens if You Hire the Wrong Business Broker? CHOOSING THE WRONG BROKER CAN COST YOU TIME, MONEY & EMBARASSMENT A True Story from Chad Peterson About 2 years ago a man and his wife called me about selling their business. After analyzing their previous 3 years of tax returns, I calculated a market value and called her to let her know exactly what the business was worth in today’s market. I could go into detail about how that call went, but the bottom line is they didn’t agree with the valuation. The Stakes Are High After I informed the seller of their target business valuation, they told me they would “get back to me”. I didn’t hear from them for almost 2 years…but the did me back as some many other sellers do. “Chad can you help us? We hired a broker, and we have been at this for over a year and our business still isn’t sold, and we really need to sell it.” I kindly asked “Why did you hire another broker?” She said “Because we thought that we could get more money and this broker told us that we should ask for more money as well.” I gave her very candid and frank advice, like we do with all our clients and told her that she made a huge mistake: “If you go to the market with too high of a price the banks won’t finance the buyer. And the debt service for the prospective buyers is way too high, making your company unattractive for both banks and buyers. The way your old business broker priced it out, the buyer would be paying an exorbitant amount of money to the bank loan in order to acquire your business. A good business broker would have never led you down this path!” Choosing the Wrong Business Broker Hurts The sellers in this true story, a husband and wife, are worn out and now they have even more health problems. On top of that, their poor selling strategy distracted them for over a year and took focus away from their business. Sales and profits dropped as a result, making the business to be worth less than when they started the process…all because they chose the wrong business broker. We won’t let this happen to you, make Peterson Acquisitions part of your success strategy today.

This Is Your Defining Moment with Chad Peterson

Cashflow Diary™

Chad Peterson is an expert business broker and the founder of Peterson Acquisitions, an award-winning M&A firm. Chad’s firm handles transactions in the $1 million to $25 million range, with some deals exceeding $25 million.  He works with companies all over the United States and has completed international deals as well. Peterson Acquisitions was recently named by one publication as the #1 ranked business broker in the United States. What sets Chad Peterson apart from all other business brokers is his aggressive style, work ethic and tenacity that are rooted in his humble beginnings.  Chad Peterson is a self-made entrepreneur that has been in the trenches. He has started, built and sold 6 of his own businesses. Chad wrote the book “From Blue to White: A Working Man’s Guide to Self-Employment”. Best-selling author Scott Alexander of “Rhinoceros Success” wrote the foreword. He also wrote the book “Swinging Doors: A Guide to Selling Your Business” and is the host of the podcast:Business Brokers: Buying, Selling & Growing Businesses Podcast Highlights Who is Chad Peterson?  If you study people who are driven you will always find a point in time where it all began. For Chad, he grew up in a tumultuous house with a difficult upbringing and early on his defining moment was realizing that he had to do things on his own. In his words “if it was meant to be it was up to me.” He worked hard as a kid, earned his own money and quickly enough people started to recognize that and praise him for his effort.  As a natural entrepreneur, Chad had difficulty in school and found himself in the work program. He eventually became a commercial pilot but that career was cut short by 9/11 and he quickly went back to his entrepreneurial roots. He built several companies and sold them over the next few years until the second inflection point of his life. In 2008, Chad had built a company that had 120 employees and was making $7 to $10 million a year. The trouble was the company was in the subprime mortgage industry and was completely destroyed by the crisis. In only a few short months, Chad went from a millionaire to broke. Instead of being defeated, Chad picked himself up and built a different company selling home services and things carried on. Eventually people started asking him how to build and sell businesses, which is how Chad ended up where he is now and a top business broker in the United States. The Impact of Mindset Chad feels that his mindset of his life being up to him is responsible for at least 85% of his success. When you’re hungry in your soul, you will make things happen. Success is survival, and for Chad if he doesn’t feel like he’s progressing he feels like he’s dying. Why $700 to $1000 a day? Home services between $700 and $1000 are still affordable for most Americans, even during a recession. By going for volume instead of a high price tag he knew that more people would take him up on his offer. During hard economic times, volume will beat out margin and a steady flow of income is important to keeping things going. Taking Risk When There Is Fear In The Marketplace There are people who act now that will make a huge amount of money during this crisis. It may seem logical to wait when you’re afraid or uncertain, but that’s what kills an economy. We are in a collapse scenario and fear is only going to
