The Twenty Hour Work Week

And What It Means To You in Your Professional Services Business


Over the past 35 years I’ve built or bought 15 different businesses. All but one was a successful. However, the successes came at a steep cost.
I’m on my 3rd marriage, and up until 4 years ago, I hardly knew my kids, and they didn’t have much use for me.

Why am I telling you this? Because I know, first hand, the sacrifices we owners make, and its just crazy no one needs to work like a dog in their business … no one.

 

4 years ago, I bought this business brokerage office and it changed my life.

Let me tell you a quick story ……
The guy I bought the business from had been a business broker for a very long time and was of a pack-rat.

When I closed in the business, I got filing cabinets dating way back into the 1990’s and I had the unique opportunity to review hundreds of old business files.

While Reviewing and Digging Through the Records,
Very Distinct Patterns Began to Emerge!

This may, or may not come as a shock to you, but here it is …

In Every Instance: If the business owner worked in the business for More than 20 hours per week, the business suffered in one way or another, and in the end, the overwhelming majority of them end up closing their doors for one reason or another.

The business went BUST, or the owner just closed the doors in defeat! They may have tried to sell the business, but no buyers showed up. If they tried to hand it down to the future generation, well, I’m not willing go there in this blog.

In “Stark Contrast”

In Every Instance: If the business owner worked in the business for Less than 20 hours per week, the exact opposite happened! The business flourished and operated smoothly and profitably. The business was valuable and easily sold quickly and at the full asking price or slightly higher.

Needless to say, after noticing the pattern I immediately began working on changing the way I did my own business and within 6 months, I got my workweek down to 20 hours or less!

Now:

  • The business operates without me
  • My 3rd wife (yes 3rd!) loves me
  • My kids like me again
  • The grandchildren know who I am!

Long Story Short …… The Purpose of a Business Is To Give The Business Owner More Time and A Better Life.
If you’ve been working like a dog in your business and your life isn’t what you believe it should be …

There is a way out, and I know how to get you there.

Marketing Minute

In today’s day and age, many of us tend to run to the office, jump behind the desk and begin pecking away – working our fingers to the bone pecking at a keyboard, or have the phone stuck to our ear for hours on end.

I’m just as guilty and anyone when it comes to working like a dog …. We all do it.

Finding the time to watch and educational video is difficult to say the least.

Well – except this one – I have been watching this guy Andrew Lock from www.HelpMyBusiness.com for about 6 years. The guy is fantastic.

He does a masterful job of sharing valuable and useful information, and at the same time is very entertaining.

His English Accent is Hilarious!

My wife and I had the unique opportunity to attend one of his workshops back in 2011 at the cost of $10,000 for 3 days, (I never laughed so hard and learned so much in my life!).

I’ve been watching his videos ever since.

Buying a Professional Practice Business

Tips for Buying a Professional Practice Business

Every month receive a few requests from Financial Planners, Money Managers, CPAs a few Insurance companies interested in buying a Professional Practice Business
… otherwise known as a “Book of Business.”

Unfortunately it’s a very difficult task because there are a lot more people interested in buying a professional practice business than there are sellers. Furthermore, just an off-the-record mention of a person thinking of selling their book of business  brings buyers out of the woodwork.

Long story short, they’re hard to come by.biz-practice

So what’s the point in writing this article?

The point is, there is MILLIONS to be made by people who build up a practice business, sell the book and do it again.

As the GURU’s say in the House Flipping business – “Rinse and Repeat”

That being said, if you have the opportunity to buy one, here are 5 things you need to watch out for so the purchase happens in a positive way instead of a nightmare:

1. Make sure there is a retention clause in the agreement.
A retention clause in a purchase agreement allows the buyer to withhold a portion of the purchase price until it is determined that the project, goods, or contracts meet the specifications of what is being sold.
In another words, the seller can’t collect all the money and leave on the next plane out of the country and vanish.    >> Dictionary Explanation of Retention Clause <<<

2. Transition of the practice to the new owner, (you) is critical and must be done in a way that the clients don’t disappear into the night. The best way to accomplish this is to make the sale look like a merger. Again, if the seller is going to jump on a plane the day after closing and fly off someplace, i’d be suer cautious and make sure there is a LARGE holdback of funds retained for release sometime on the future.

3. Thorough review of all paperwork is essential!   You must have absolute clarity on what you’re buying! Leave no stone unturned, and let no question go unanswered!

4. Complete a background check on the seller.
Google the owner and the business name and see what pops up. Check to make sure any business license or credentials are in good standing and no ethic violations have occurred against the owner or any partners. With the internet now-a-days, there are no secrets. If you don’t want to do the background check, hire someone to do it for you.

DON’T skip this step – regardless how well you know the person, or what you’ve heard about them. Their social profile will tell you a lot about their character. Do Your Homework on the Seller.

My Grandfather used to say , “You can whitewash the stripes of a Zebra, put a saddle on it’s back and call it a horse, but all you really have is a zebra with a saddle on its back and the stripes will come back after a good rain.”

5. Make sure all employees are under a non-compete and non-disclosure. The last thing you want to have happen is you invest a bunch of money into a company only to have the top employees  walk out behind the seller, taking their clients with them and going into business of themselves.

There you have it …. 5 Tips for Buying a “Practice Business.”

I wrote a book on the 5 Fundamental Elements of Every Successful and Sellable Business.
It is loaded with very good information, and if you build your business around the 5 Fundamental Elements, you can easily scale your business up quickly.
To get you copy, go to Amazon.com and type in my name Paul Forsberg.

McDonalds Is Going Broke – They Should Read My Book

The world’s biggest fast-food chain is facing its fourth year of U.S. sales declines.

The Most Successful Restaurant in The Word … McDonalds Is Going Broke – They Should Read My Book and Learn What They’re Doing Wrong McDonalds Is Going Broke

According a recent Bloomberg article written by Leslie Patton titled:

McDonald’s Turnaround Fails to Get More Customers in Door

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-10-26/mcdonald-s-turnaround-fails-to-get-more-customers-in-the-doorhttps://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-10-26/mcdonald-s-turnaround-fails-to-get-more-customers-in-the-door

They’re blaming the competition and everything else for their sluggish and shrinking sales. When all they need to do is look in the mirror and take personal responsibility.

Personally, I love their fish sandwiches and happen to thing they make the best fish sandwiches in the world. However, that being said. over the past five or so years, every time I visited a McDonalds, I would mutter under my breath “It look like McDonalds is Going Broke,” on my way out.  The reason being, is I felt my business was not appreciated when at the counter, was forced to wait a LONG TIME for my meal, and to be honest, I felt like the people working there didn’t care one way or the other!

I don’t go to McDonalds any longer – Taco Bell is faster and they appreciate their customers.

I wonder when the last time leadership has actually walked into any one of the thousands of them in existence and tried to get a meal.

If they did, they would get a VERY-RUDE awakening.

It used to be you could go into McDonalds and be greeted with a smile, and hear “Welcome to McDonalds, May I Take You Order?” You immediately felt welcomed and appreciated.

Now, while you might hear the “Welcome to McDonalds” pitch, it comes from someone who is obviously not happy to be there, they say it with contempt in their voice, and  what was once a smile has been replaced with a scowl.

Add to it the fact that no longer can you get your order delivered rapidly – it is taking longer and longer.

In my opinion, it is a classic case of lack of Leadership and loss of Focus.

I delve into this in my book “The 5 Fundamental Elements of Every Successful and Sellable Business.Business Growth
The unfortunate thing is, I actually used McDonalds as one of the success stories on the importance of Front End Sales. However, that being said, historically, regardless of the business or location, if a business looses 3 of the 5 Fundamentals, the business will fail.

According to this article, it is obvious McDonalds is missing TWO, and quite possibly THREE of them.

ONE: Leadership.
TWO: Front End Sales
THREE: Back End Sales and Product Fulfillment.

Watch McDonalds – if they don’t take a “Cold-Hard-Look” in the mirror, they will get run over by the competition and be nothing more than another fast food drive through with terrible service.

I tell you one thing …. If I had money in the Stock Market, I’d Short McDonalds stock! McDonalds is Going Broke if they don’t go back to basics soon.

The business failure rate in this world is staggering, and the sad truth about the businesses that do make it, only a few can be sold for Top Dollar!
“Entrepreneurs work hard – sacrificing their time, family, friends, and lord knows what else. I mean, we really work our tails off and the last thing any of us want to do after all of our hard work and sacrifice is end up being forced to close the doors in a liquidation sale, or when the time comes, end up selling the business for pennies on the dollar. None of us can afford the pain and anguish of being forced to clip coupons to get by in retirement because we failed to plan ahead of time.
