Build Vs Buy?
It’s the classic question of BUILD vs. BUY?”
You know, large companies have asked this question for ages. Either they can grow by building the company, or by buying other companies.
But entrepreneurs have never really had that choice.
You see, the reason entrepreneurs never had that choice is because there has never been an efficient marketplace for buying and selling these small to mid-sized cash-flow positive businesses.
Now gives entrepreneurs this all-important choice of build vs. buy.
So now, as an entrepreneur, you don’t have to just default to the “build” option anymore, now you can ask yourself…
“Should I start a business from scratch? Or is it cheaper, faster and a better use of resources to buy an existing business?”
For the first time you can take advantage of one of the smartest shortcuts in entrepreneurship – which is to grow by acquisition.
The trick is finding the right business for YOU that will MAXIMIZE your time and MAGNIFY your results.
Now, if you’ve decided that buying a cash-flow positive business is indeed the right path for you, then you’ve come to the right place, because here at RAINCATCHER ® we can help you find a great business for YOU.
“I’D RATHER BUY A GREAT BUSINESS AT A GOOD PRICE, THAN A GOOD BUSINESS AT A GREAT PRICE.”
– WARREN BUFFETT
We at RAINCATCHER ® couldn’t agree with this statement more, and that’s why we specialize in matching the right buyers and the right sellers with great, positive cash-flow businesses that leverage technology for a global reach.
BUT WHAT MAKES A GREAT BUSINESS?
That is the most important question, isn’t it?
After all, it’s a relative term… and it’s different for everyone.
It all depends on finding the right business that UTILIZES YOUR STRENGTHS.
Here at RAINCATCHER ® we do a large amount of “entrepreneurial testing” with many of our prospective buyers – and we test both CONITIVE AND COGNITIVE function to find the best business match for you.
Here is an example…
Let’s say there are three businesses. They all have the same exact earnings and the same exact multiple. They each earn $1 million a year, and they’re each selling at 3X earnings.
Are all three businesses going to deliver you the exact same results?
Let’s consider the possibility that out of those three businesses, there’s one business in particular that utilizes your specific strengths and delivers 10X the results of the other two.
For example, maybe it’s a business with a superior quality product, but it has a sales problem, and your strength is in sales or marketing.
Or, let’s say it’s a business that’s absolutely on fire, but it’s having problems delivering technically, and you come from a technology background.
Or perhaps it’s a business with great intellectual property, and you have a legal background.
The list goes on and on.
You’ve heard of strength-based management. It’s been in the common business vernacular for years.
This is simply our adaptation. We call it ‘strength-based investing.’”
You see, here at RAINCATCHER ®, our frameworks are all focused on finding a great business for YOU.
A business that utilizes your strengths… or what our founder, Robert Hirsch has coined as, your “stupid human trick”.
You see, everybody has one thing that they do that creates ALL THE VALUE in their business. And that’s your “stupid human trick”.
WHAT’S YOUR “STUPID HUMAN TRICK”?
You’ve heard of the 80/20 principle.
In the entrepreneurial world, it’s really more like 95/5. And what that means is that whether it’s in marketing, finance, operations, product design, (or some other ability), every entrepreneur has that “stupid human trick” that generates 95% of the business value.
As entrepreneurs, we’re surrounded by temptation, and there are many things that we’re good at, (or even great at), but they’re not our stupid human trick.
And, in fact, those are the biggest distractions, because the abilities that we’re the best at in our company, or even very good at, prevent us from doing our “stupid human trick”, which generates 95% of our value. Those are the biggest time-sucks in our business.
What’s your “stupid human trick”?
It’s vitally important to know what it is.
You see, the primary way our founder, Robert Hirsch, has created massive value in consulting for businesses, is by really identifying that 5%, (or the entrepreneur’s “stupid human trick”), and honing it to a razor sharp edge.
The first step to “honing that edge” is becoming AWARE OF IT.
This is what allows you to create a disproportionate amount of value in a limited amount of time.
SO HOW DO YOU FIND A GREAT BUSINESS
THAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU?
Up until now, this really has been a challenge.
It’s always been a horribly inefficient marketplace, and quite difficult to find great companies that are an ideal match for you.
But now, here at RAINCATCHER ®, we specialize in finding businesses that are GREAT FOR YOU… and that means matching you with businesses that utilizes your “stupid human trick” so you can maximize your time and magnify your results.
We’ve found this to be the biggest determining factor of success in the successful acquisition of small businesses.
Robert has used this methodology, (which is based on an ancient concept called “TzimTzum”), to grow and scale businesses throughout his career, and later in his consulting, investing, and advising endeavors. And now we are applying these proven concepts to buying and selling business to achieve amazing rates of return.
Now it’s your turn.
We welcome you to the RAINCATCHER ® family. We’re ready to help you find a great business that is the perfect fit for you!
