to 7-Figure Acquisitions
From Zero Idea to 7-Figure Acquisitions
Jason is an active acquisition entrepreneur who bought two companies worth $3,845,000 in 15 months
What Buying Companies Did for My Life...
(And Why I Am So Passionate About It)
Before I Bought My First Company:
- “Was I destined for 9 to 5 my entire life?” ran through my head daily.
- I returned home from Dan Pena’s Castle Seminar in December of 2018.
- I was sleeping on my grandma’s pullout couch in my early months when building my deal team and looking for deals… thanks grandma!
- I leveraged everything I had to get started. Bye-bye 9 to 5!

After My First 7-Figure Deal in Omaha, NE
- In August of 2019, I purchased a manufactured housing community in the Omaha, Nebraska area.
- This first deal put me in a MUCH better place in terms of my net worth.
After My Second 7-Figure Deal in Tampa, FL
- In November of 2020, we purchased a professional plumbing service company and its real estate with a great 25 year history and great clients.
- Now, I am living in a fairly upscale apartment in Tampa Bay.
- This is only the beginning for me. Much more to follow…

After My Next 7 or 8-Figure Deal ???
- To be continued.
- Just wait.
- It will happen as I buy more great companies.
- Why not have big dreams?
What Makes Jason’s Program Different From All the Rest?
Let me say this first: Other instructors in this space of small cap M&A (deals under $50M) focus on the wrong things. Although, some of them are better than others.
But, some of them have never bought a 7-figure company themselves.
We blow everyone else out of the water with our program for a multitude of reasons. We are 10X more honest, we have a slightly lower investment cost, we have WAY better information, we have better support such as monthly Zoom calls and a members-only mastermind group, and more (some things are hard to explain on a webpage, especially if you are inexperienced with M&A).
Notably, our program has two key differences from ALL the rest:
We Show You How To Build an M&A Deal Team That Will:
We Focus on Buying Companies That are Diamonds in the Rough and Cash Flow on Autopilot, Even if That Means Doing Slightly Fewer Deals:
Why Should You Buy Companies?
Does It Really Work?
Success leaves clues... Look at the wealth that has been created:
Buying Private Companies
- Sam Zell – $5B (RE & Other)
- Donald Trump – $2.1B (RE & Inheritance)
- George Roberts – $6B (PE)
- Leon Black – $8B (PE)
- Stephen Schwarzman – $20B (PE)
- Jerome Kohlberg Jr. $1.5B (PE)
- David Rubenstein – $3.4B (PE)
- Steve Feinberg – $2B (PE)
- Henry Kravis – $6B (PE)
- Robert Smith – $5B (PE)
- Mark Rowan – $3.6B (PE)
- Joshua Harris – $4.5B (PE)
- David Bonderman – $3.7B (PE)
- and many more…
Buying Public Companies
- Warren Buffett – $76B (private & public)
- Charlie Munger – $1.7B (private & public)
- Carl Icahn – $14.6B (private & public)

- and many more…
Note: Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger are worth approximately double what’s reported above, as they have sold a lot of Berkshire stock for other projects and charities.
The diagram below explains how all these billionaires got so damn wealthy.
Why didn't they tell us this in high school or college? They only had us sitting in desks for 15+ years...
Not an option I recommend if you are looking to build massive wealth and get out of your comfort zone. If you want to go through life not challenging yourself to the fullest, then maybe this is for you. Buying companies is not for everyone.
This is very time consuming as well. The longer you stay in a 9 to 5 job, the more comfortable you get there… and the less likely you are to get out.
If you aren’t careful, this will consume your entire life like 95% of people.
If your startup doesn’t fail, the growth will most likely still be linear unless you create the next Facebook or Instagram. I don’t have a blueprint for creating wealth through a traditional startup. And, I don’t recommend it.
It is much safer and easier to buy an existing company that is already optimized and has already made it through the startup phase.
Most importantly, look at the time wasted on this pink line! Look at how long it takes! Time is more important than money!
M&A and organic growth (when done right, meaning, you make smart acquisitions), creates exponential growth in net worth.
BUT, there are costs and risks involved. That is why you need the M&A know-how that is in this program.
This green line is the track all those billionaires I listed above were on.
It takes time though. It doesn’t happen overnight. So, you must start ASAP. And the longer you wait to get on the green line, the less and less likely you will ever get on the green line. Period.
This is why I recommend if you have the money to invest, start immediately. The longer you wait, the more you put it off, the harder it gets, and the more you hurt yourself.
I am 29 now. If I would have known this at 20 or 22 or 24, damnnnnn. Screw college, screw high school even (just kidding, graduate high school!). But seriously, you don’t need to know virtually anything else than what is in this program to get very wealthy.
It matters that you start as quickly as possible to get on the green line, which is the point I am trying to make. The longer you put it off, the harder it gets.
Once you do your first deal, everything changes. Only then does the green line become real. Bankers start calling on YOU. 7 and 8-figure deals show up in your inbox from brokers, sellers, and investment bankers. Everyone thinks you are the man. You walk around like you are the man. Your respect doubles or triples instantly. Members of the opposite sex want to date you. Your M&A deal team gets jazzed to do more deals. Investors start begging to give you money, instead of you having to call them. Sellers and bankers no longer ask if you can close and operate.
Basically, you get an unfair advantage in life. That’s what happens on the green line.
How do I know this? Because it has happened to me. Once you close your first deal, you are on that green line. Before that, in the world of business, you are considered a nobody. Unfortunately, that is just the way the world is.
Let us take the thinking and hardship away by giving you the step-by-step playbook Jason used to close two 7-figure deals worth $3,845,000 in the last 15 months. You can literally replicate Jason's methods for the cost of a community college course. Check out the curriculum:
NOTE: The videos inside the program go into much greater depth and detail than the videos I post on YouTube. YouTube is for free. So, I tend to just turn on the camera and talk. The program content is different.

Scroll down below to see what we are charging, and you’ll realize this is a no-brainer if you are trying to buy companies and accumulate wealth.
It’s like I sometimes say to bankers when discussing a deal: “This is a no-brainer deal. It will get funded. The question is, will it be your bank that funds it?”
When you implement and take action with this program, what would it be worth to you when you buy your first company? Second company? Third?
At that point, is it worth more than we are charging? Yes, and many times over.
Education Cost Comparisons
This is per year... But, we don't need any of these degrees to buy companies and get wealthy.
And costs have increased for most of these. Don't forget the time wasted too, which is more important than the $$$
Other Cost Comparisons
... I say "success-fee or not" because you still have to pay the bill to these firms at some point, regardless.
In this program, we teach you how to eliminate the majority of these costs (potentially 25 - 100k in legal and accounting fees saved by following the methods Jason used to close his first two 7-figure deals).
And those savings are just in the first year alone. What about the savings 5, 10, 15 years into your M&A career? Incalculable. The savings on this alone pays for the program many times over...
This is the only program you'll ever need on buying great companies with no money of your own.
The beautiful thing about this program is the freedom it provides. You can stop making acquisitions when you'd like. You can buy big companies. You can buy small companies. It is all up to you.
Being the owner of a company that is already optimized is what creates that freedom.
The freedom of having time to do what you want. The freedom to spend money on things you enjoy. The freedom to provide a great life for your family. Not spending time being told what to do by your lazy boss at work.
That is why owners of great companies have the best lives. That is why our program is so popular.
Sure, I push hard to do as many deals as I can - as do many of the entrepreneurs in this program. But that is a choice I make.
You may want to only buy one or two companies in your entire business career.
Or maybe you just started thinking about M&A and you don't know what you want.
With this program, the sky is the limit. The choice is yours on how far you decide you wanna go.
There isn't anything else I'd recommend for creating a better, more fulfilled life full of responsibility, influence, and excitement than what I am doing and teaching others to do.
And, if wealth is your main priority in life and all the rest is secondary, then you should already know that buying companies has created more wealth than anything else... Just look at all the billionaires I mentioned above.
If you follow it, this program is so useful that it *can* literally REPLACE certain advisors / deal team members that other people will recommend you work with. That's one of the main reasons I built the program... So, my clients can have more self-reliance in their M&A careers.
And that's exactly why so many entrepreneurs are singing the program praises... it's just incredibly useful, and it provides way more value than the investment cost.
This program is useful for the same reason this proverb has been around for so long: "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime."
Advisors, board members, deal team members, employees - they *can* be great assets... But they are temporary to your life. They are the "fish" that are just given to you - useful in the moment, but only temporary.
YOU alone are your biggest asset... And you'll be your biggest asset for the rest of your life. For your own good, stop waiting and act like it!
When you implement this battle-tested-in-2020 program and copy the proprietary strategies I have created and used to buy two great companies worth $3,845,000 in the last 15 months, the likelihood of you becoming mega-successful and ultra-wealthy exponentially increases.
It's simple: I am in this for the long haul. I am starting a movement of entrepreneurs around the world who will buy great companies and live lives they never thought possible.
Maybe you think focusing on getting your money right is selfish? Think again. Capitalism is ruthless. As an employee, you can always get fired at any time. You have a responsibility to yourself to be all you can be... And that is why capitalism works so well. If everyone else looks after themself first, then you should too.
You can either choose to be an employee for the rest of your life, or become a business owner. Don't say you never had the choice though. Everything you need is a click away.
Truth is, in the United States (and in the UK, CAN, AU, Europe) we need acquisition entrepreneurs for our economies right now... The wealthy baby boomer generation needs to sell their businesses and have young entrepreneurs take them over for our economies to stay strong. This is part of the reason we are losing the "economic war" to China... We simply need more acquisition entrepreneurs.
In other words, we need people who are bold, like our ancestors. People who won't back down from a fight, but rather, people who will be invigorated by a good fight or a challenge.
The opportunities ahead will be "once in a lifetime."
Don't believe me? See what the California Association of Business Brokers had to say in a recent article they put out:
- “Retiring Boomer business owners will sell or bequeath $10 trillion worth of assets over the next two decades.”
- “These assets are held in more than 12 million privately owned businesses.”
- “More than 70 percent of these companies are expected to change hands.”
- “The sale of almost 12 million businesses over the next 10 to 15 years represents a significant increase in the annual number of businesses that will be sold.”
This is the best scenario for us buyers of businesses... high supply, and low demand!! A real opportunity to rollup a fragmented industry at a low multiple and exit at a much higher one!
Private equity firms and strategic buyers will always "pay up" for scale. They have deep pockets of committed capital from pension funds, endowments, and insurance companies, but they have no willingness to do any dirty work. They just want to write a check.
Luckily, the small cap companies we will be targeting are slightly too small for big firms, so we can get them at a major discount.
These big firms just want to buy the finished the product, and accept a 10% return for their investors. They wanna sit behind desks in suits (fake entrepreneurs).
10% isn't good enough for me though. I hope it isn't for you either.
That is the game. Buy a bunch of smaller companies low. Integrate into one, and sell high to a bigger firm that is sitting on tons of cash and willing to overpay.
Buy low, sell high baby. Warren Buffett-esque. Let's go.
The answer is yes, there are approximately 12 million businesses that you can purchase in the United States alone. There are tons of baby boomers out there that need (or will need) an exit! Here is how the California Association of Business Brokers sees it in a recent article they posted (this is copied word for word so you know I didn’t misconstrue their words).
The Baby Boomers (about 70,000,000 of them) are poised to make a great impact on the American economy.
- Retiring Boomer business owners will sell or bequeath $10 trillion worth of assets over the next two decades.
- These assets are held in more than 12 million privately owned businesses.
- More than 70 percent of these companies are expected to change hands.
- The sale of almost 12 million businesses over the next 10 to 15 years represents a significant increase in the annual number of businesses that will be sold (addition: this is the best scenario for us buyers of businesses… high supply, and low demand!!).
- The 12,000,000 businesses likely to change hands over the next 10-15 years might involve a large number of boomer-to-boomer sales.
- Ironically, now small business ownership is seen as much more safe and secure than working for a large company.
- So, in the coming decades, not only are we likely to see millions of Baby Boomers selling businesses they now own, we will also see additional millions of Boomers (who’ve spent their lives working for someone else), buying businesses. The next two decades will see a significant increase in the number of small and mid-sized businesses being bought and sold by Baby Boomers, in addition to the other generations of Americans that business brokers regularly deal with.
Here is the link to the full article.
You read that correctly. There will be so many companies for sale in the coming years, so much so that baby boomers (one of the greatest, most pro-business generations) are going to buy MORE companies.
There has never been an opportunity like this for a young acquisition entrepreneur!
10 trillion dollars worth of assets will change hands! Motivated sellers left and right! 12 million privately owned businesses up for grabs. And in the majority of cases, the kids don’t want to take over the family business anymore! Absolutely crazy.
I know I am going to take advantage rather than sitting on my ass.
No, you do not need cash of your own to buy a company. You can raise a small down payment from an equity investor or you can use seller finance/seller equity.
Yes, it is easier to buy anything when you have more money. This idea has been floating around that it is easier to buy a business with less money in your bank account because you can just use seller finance. Again, a completely asinine idea probably started by someone who isn’t actually buying companies. More money/net worth means you have a better credit rating, more collateral, more money to put down, more money to invest in the company, more money to travel to see business owners, more money to focus on acquisitions 100% of the time – the list goes on. But most of all, you just have more leverage with everyone in life when you have more money (including bankers, sellers, investors, and even employees). You are just more attractive to everyone when you have more money.
But this doesn’t mean you need to be rich to get started towards your path to massive wealth. The worst thing you can do is not get started today.
“Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” – Warren Buffett
No, this program is not for people with low energy. It takes a strong-willed person to make this program work. No results are guaranteed. This program is for people who are willing to put in the work, take some risk, tackle problems when they arise, and self-generate success.
Yes. You can view the legal agreement at the bottom of the page.
Refund and Return Policy:
You agree that all purchases made with us are final. Given the confidential and privileged information contained in the program (see curriculum) and services provided by Jason Paul Rogers and Stress Becomes Power Inc., we have a strict zero refund and return policy. You agree when transacting with and ultimately purchasing from Stress Becomes Power Inc., Jason Paul Rogers, and/or any services provided by Jason Paul Rogers, that any/all transaction(s) or purchase(s) are final, and non-refundable.
If you are a person that frequently gets refunds or backs out of commitments, then you are probably not a good fit for this program. This program works best for committed entrepreneurs with no backup plan. Furthermore, we have one of the least expensive products in this space (about the same price as a community college or university course, with at least 10X the value of a community college or university course). Because our program is less expensive than others and more valuable, fraudulent activities take place when we allow refunds. For those reasons and the others mentioned here, we don’t allow refunds.
Yes. Although this isn’t ideal, there are a few reasons why one would do this.
(1) You have a 5 – 10 year window to start buying companies from baby boomers. Baby boomers will continue to retire rapidly during the next 5 – 10 years. The sooner you get into buying and selling companies the better. Indeed, there are TONS of opportunities right now! Other people are realizing those opportunities! That could be you!
(2) You will never lose access to the program. If you invest in the program, the program is yours. We suggest people get through the program as quickly as possible so they are confident and well-equipped when starting the process. But, you can certainly invest in the program now and run through it and then circle back on it later when you are more prepared to take action, follow the process, and make your first acquisition. Maybe you are in school. Maybe you are in a less than ideal living situation or financial situation (FYI we do not suggest people who are in debt to buy this program or any program out there – get yourself out of debt first). Maybe you are moving or are going through some sort of career change. Whatever it is, you don’t have to start taking action tomorrow in this program – although we recommend it strongly. We have seen people take the long-term approach and still be successful. Lastly, we hope, if you are in that long-term boat, that by going through the program we can help you speed up the process of getting to your first acquisition whether by motivation, confidence, or using the business knowledge presented in the program to propel yourself to a place to where you are prepared to begin taking action. Again, ideally, we recommend you come right out of the gate swinging, but we understand that everyone is in a different situation in their life.
(3) You will get access to all updates to the program. This means, that as I myself and my clients buy more companies, we will continue to add what works best. And we won’t be adding content from the beach or from a rented vacation home like some of the “gurus.” We add content from the trenches.
(4) We reserve the right to (and very well may) increase the price of the program as we do more deals and our students do more deals. As anything in life, when you get more successful and generate more results, you have the liberty to increase your prices – another perfect reason why you need to start now so that you can get to that point. It works the same with buying companies – when we started we went after smaller deals and we had to “sell” more to banks and sellers because we were the new, unproven kids on the block. Now, we still go after some smaller deals when they make sense, but we also go after larger deals simply because we have the competence, confidence, and experience to do so.
This program can be applied to virtually all sectors – but will be most successful in growing industries that lack a plethora of buyers. From online stores to landscaping companies to funeral homes – there are many options. This program is easiest to execute in service-based industries, given the multiples are lower and access to financing is easier because there is a higher debt service coverage ratio… because the multiple is lower. But, we are speaking very general here. This doesn’t apply to every situation.
Lastly, this program is harder to execute in real estate industries because (1) there are more buyers, and (2) buying hard assets is equity capital intensive. This means, you will need to have access to equity (either your own cash or investor capital) to do even small-sized real estate deals. If you don’t have access to 6-figures in equity, then real estate is not the quickest way to Rome. Although, you can buy real-estate on the side with the cashflow of other businesses to diversify and multiply your money.
Yes and Yes.
Read the question above titled “Are there enough businesses for me to buy.” You’ll see that you can become a great asset to a company in the next 10 – 15 years if you understand how to buy companies from retiring baby boomers (or any business owner).
If you already own a company, even better. You are actually better positioned than anyone to make an acquisition. Chances are you have more than enough money to buy a medium sized company easily and you’ll have a lot more leverage all around including when building an M&A team, talking to motivated sellers, during due diligence period, getting the financing, running the company, valuing prospective companies, etc.
When you are younger (in your 20s), you have less responsibilities, less risk, and more time to learn than when in your 40s. However, when you are older, you likely have more experience, more savvy, and perhaps – more money. Assuming you’re not in debt, the perfect time to start is now.
Yes, Jason makes himself available to those who buy this course.
With the Gold Package (which is the more popular package) there is a members-only Facebook mastermind group where other acquisition entrepreneurs and Jason answer questions, help with strategy, and comment on any deals you want feedback on. This is provided as a bonus to you free of charge. Also, Jason does a monthly Zoom call with members in the program. This is also provided to you as a bonus free of charge. You will get access to all recordings of past Zoom calls upon investing in the program.
I didn’t have any M&A experience when I started. I don’t have an MBA and I wouldn’t recommend you waste your time, when this single program is probably better than you course These two things do not heavily predict success with this program or entrepreneurship in general when starting out.
Mergers and acquisitions is alive and well in nearly all countries (certainly western culture / capitalistic countries). M&A is absolutely vital to an economy. Businesses exchange hands constantly. Every business owner has a life cycle. At some stage, everyone exits.
The only countries we know of that this program does not really work in is Russia and North Korea – and some other authoritarian countries. Most of our clients are in the US, CAN, UK, AU, or somewhere in Europe.
If you won’t bet on yourself, I wouldn’t either.
Furthermore, skin in the game is one of the many factors that predicts success. Knowing that, getting this program for free/payment plan/payback later would make you less likely to succeed, and then I wouldn’t be doing my job. I would be setting you up for failure if I allowed this. Sacrifice is necessary on the road to success. People who have skin in the game are more serious, and I only want to work with people who are serious about reaching their potential. Furthermore, I won’t comprise others in the program by letting in people who aren’t serious. By the way, I’ve invested more than 20 times what the cost of my Gold Program is on mentorship & education.
I won’t accept equity in your company either. I will show you how I distributed my equity (I have now done this twice, because I have two different consolidation firms), but I will not be accepting any, even if you offer. Running my two consolidation firms and this program is more than enough on my plate.
Two important questions.
(1) If you have been a salesman in your career already, then you are perfect for this program. You must be a decent communicator/salesman to be successful with this program. Of course, it is better if you are a good communicator/salesman. Do you have to be a great salesman/communicator? No. Do you have to be able to speak in public? Certainly not – and you can slowly learn this over time. Is this something that must come inherently to you? Certainly not. I used to be a terrible communicator. Being a good communicator/salesman only takes practice – that is the secret. Practicing your pitches, presentations, cold outreach. Continually getting better. Pretty soon, you will not have to practice at all or very little because it becomes second nature.
(2) You must be able to read and write in a proper manner, whichever language your country speaks. Do you have to be Shakespeare? NO. However, you must be able write with either a strong high school or undergrad writing level. Otherwise, board members, sellers, bankers, etc. will be repelled by you. They all use proper grammar. So, you do the same. It is as simple as that.
Not sure why this is a question, but we get it sometimes. How did Warren Buffett and all the private equity titans get to be billionaires?: By buying businesses. In a capitalist country like the US or the UK, businesses reap virtually all the rewards. It should be clear how you make money as an owner of company, but I will give you a quick summary. You are probably overthinking it if you are asking this question.
(1) The cashflow or earnings of the company go to you – and any other equity holders of the company (we teach you to be the majority 50.1%+ stakeholder).
(2) You can sell the company or a part of it.
(3) You can refinance the debt of the company and “take money out.” This is similar to over-financing the deal off the bat, where you could also pull money out for you, your directors, or your shareholders (although not recommended if you are highly leveraged).
(4) You can make a lot of money by growing the company’s sales (kind of an obvious point that is sometimes not focused on).
(5) You can “over finance” a deal with excess “working capital” – something we share with you how to do – and pay yourself, as well as your team (only if it makes sense in the scenario… some deals are tighter and this is never something that you will be required to do, it is just something you can do if the situation permits to break a little bread with your advisors).
Why Is Our Price Lower than the Rest When Our Program Is Better?
First, we don’t have to charge stupid rates like others because we have no private jets or Lambo’s in our marketing budget. We spend money on things that cash flow, so that we don’t have to break your bank (unlike certain people on the internet, who don’t practice what they preach).
Second, simply put, we care more than others in this space. We want the price to be reasonable (too much and it isn’t affordable to young hustlers ready to start buying companies… too little and it doesn’t filter out those that aren’t serious, and there isn’t enough skin in the game to produce action).
Why Skin in the Game is a Prerequisite to Success?
Entrepreneurs without skin in the game or a few failures here and there aren’t usually successful.
When you look at the most successful people in this world, they all had and still have massive skin in the game with their endeavors.
Donald Trump: (leaving aside his politics) He is willing to work all day. He is willing to put massive amounts of his own money at risk to be successful and see his projects succeed.
Bill Gates: Dropped out of Harvard to move to Albuquerque and start Microsoft. His family was pissed. He never “believed in weekends” until he left Microsoft.
Elon Musk: After selling Zip2 and PayPal, Musk had about $200M… Years later, he was borrowing money from friends for rent because he put all of his money into SpaceX and Tesla, doubling, & tripling down after seemingly big failures. How did that work out?
Warren Buffett: Like Trump, he works all day (that is another form of skin the game). He bought a Dale Carnegie course when he was around 20 yrs old for $100 because he knew he was an “inept” communicator. That $100 in 1950 is now worth $1,080 today because of inflation. He still calls it his single greatest investment.
This is the full story: After attending Columbia, Buffett went home to Omaha in 1950 to sell stocks as a broker, but he was still a terrible communicator even after college: “I knew that I had to be able to speak in front of people… So again, I saw the ad in the paper and went down to sign up; but this time (note about this story: Buffett didn’t show up for the course the first time he signed up because he was too nervous), I handed the instructor $100 in cash. I knew if I gave him the cash I’d show up.” – Warren Buffett
That last part is important. Warren knew he needed some skin in the game to force himself to do it despite his fears. He needed momentum. He knew he needed his back against the wall to get out of his comfort zone. He knew it could change his life. And it did.
If Warren Buffett (who would be worth over 140 billion right now if he hadn’t given so much to charity) needed skin in the game to show up for a public speaking/communication course, then so do you and I.
If all these ultra successful entrepreneurs needed skin in the game, then so do you and I.
It fucking works. And I wish I knew it sooner.
The prices at the bottom of the page are just not a lot of money in the world of business.
We’ve heard some of our members say that the price is extremely cheap. While, a few of you reading this will say (though we never really hear this) that it is too expensive.
Those that say it is too expensive will probably never pay the price of success. If you can’t spend that much to get the right information and invest in yourself and your business, you’re unlikely to take the action necessary to make successful acquisitions.
Just keeping it real with you. These people who are saving every dime don’t have the confidence to bet on themselves today knowing there is a small chance of failure tomorrow. What a sad story.
“Old men are always advising young men to save money. That is bad advice. Don’t save every nickel. Invest in yourself. I never saved a dollar until I was forty years old.” – Henry Ford
This is Henry Ford. If Henry Ford needed to invest every dollar in himself until 40, then so do you and I. It’s good enough for me, at least.
Some people just don’t get that time is enemy of us all. That is why I got mentors. That is why we all get mentors… to cut the learning curve, save time, and prevent unnecessary failure.
Also, having to spend a small fee ensures everyone on the monthly Zoom calls has enough invested to work hard, study the material, and take action. This results in the live calls being insightful, lively, and productive.
Speaking of fees, if we raised the fee, it would probably make our clients more successful.
What if we made the price 10k or 20k? Would you take more action having purchased after buying at 20k? The answer is certainly yes.
With more on the line, one tends to be more likely perform.
A higher fee would also make the program more exclusive. Meaning, only the most committed entrepreneurs would be willing to pay the price. That would produce better results as well. But, we want to keep it affordable.
We’ll see, but prices won’t stay the same forever.
I am not trying to be a hard-ass.
But, I am trying to get you to take the “red pill” of reality and truth like Neo in “The Matrix.”
I want you to see things for what they truly are. And the reality is, this program is the cost of a community college course. Anything less and the buy-in isn’t big enough for you to start taking action and implementing the program. Anything less and you are telling me that buying companies isn’t really that important to you.
People spend 200k on stupid degrees from these big bureaucratic organizations called universities, only to not use any of the information later in life. So, forgive me if I want you to make a small investment in yourself.
Some even get deep into college debt to be taught how NOT to make money and stay poor… I find this pretty stupid. If you are in debt or have bad credit, I strongly recommend you fix those things before you get into this program. No excuses.
Use This Investment as a Tax Deduction:
In general, if you plan on using this program for its intended purpose (to buy a 7-figure business), once you form as a legal entity you can most likely use this training program as a tax write-off.
We are not tax accountants, so verify this with your accountant if you have any questions. We can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to use the course as a tax deduction. But, it has been our experience that this is the case.
This basically lowers the program cost by 20% (or whatever your tax rate is).
If You Want to Make More than $100,000 a Year, Stop Making Excuses and Wasting Time…
If you want to make less than 100k/year, you don’t need my help for that, and this program isn’t for you.
But, if you want to make more than 100k/year, I can certainly put you on that path.
Excuses are most-likely holding you back…
You don’t need a J.D. or M.B.A.
You don’t need a ton of business experience (some do it with none).
What you do need is a massive-action mindset and a mentor. Period.
The only way to find out if you are right for this or anything in life is to force yourself into the unknown… To get in the arena of business and under the bright lights where you are out of your comfort zone.
Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), this is the only way. This is what separates the “haves” from the “have-nots.”
Without action into the unknown, you’ll never what you’re capable of.
Worse than that, you’ll regret the time you wasted. It is a proven fact that people usually regret the things they didn’t try, the risks they didn’t take – not failures or the result of decisions but inaction.
And trust me, you compile a long enough list of regrets or even a few big ones, they get really painful to think about as the clock ticks (I know from experience).
What People Are Saying...
The Real Reason You Should Join the Program
Have you ever dreamed about what it is like to be financially free? Not be told what to do by anyone? To be the leader of a ship? To be the hero of your story? I know the answer.
I used to dream like that. Hell, I still do. The difference is that now I act towards those dreams, and I’m realizing them as you read this… so are my clients.
It is a hell of a feeling getting up in the morning acting towards your dreams, instead of just thinking about it or making excuses.
Just recently, I rescued myself from mediocrity, thinking small, being soft, and being poor.
This is something that many of you already know, because I documented it all on YouTube.
Not long ago, I leveraged it all to make my first 7-figure acquisition.
Was “ponying up” something that I wanted to do? Candidly, no, not really. But I knew there was a price tag on success.
I wouldn’t be in the position I am in today if I hadn’t been willing to take action and get uncomfortable.
Back on dreams because this is important… Most people that dream (deep down) don’t really think they are actually going to achieve them.
They may talk about them with their friends, even with themselves internally, but deep down they don’t believe it. Or they’ve already quit on themselves.
And that’s all bullshit.
I know I am going to achieve my dreams. I just know it.
And that is how you need to think too if you want to make your dreams come true [this is the Kobe Bryant / Michael Jordan mentality of complete certainty].
It starts with being completely honest with yourself and what you want.
I don’t want you to wander around life for years and years, eventually to wake up, and all of sudden, you are 30, or 40, or 50, and your prime years are gone. Stolen. Wasted. Spent. Forever.
And, I’ve been there in points in my life. Whether the cause be prolonged inaction, or screwing off, or living someone else’s life… That is not a happy day when you finally wake up.
I was 28 when I started my M&A process. Wouldn’t it have been nice if I had started earlier? So, I speak from experience.
But luckily, that doesn’t have to be you anymore if you want to change.
You have the ability to change directions right now. And I will help you with that change. This program will help you with that change.
But I promise you no one is going to do it for you. Some people, are actually going to try and bring you down on your new journey.
… and we can use that as fuel.
Because when people quit on their dreams, they tend to attack the people getting shit done.
I am telling you, there is much more satisfaction and fulfillment in the harder route. The road less travelled.
But don’t tell me, that after reading this, you didn’t know you had a big choice to make. That you didn’t have any willing mentors. That you didn’t have the opportunities. I am giving you everything you need in both of the offerings below. There are no excuses.
Normal people don’t get this: The big dogs make shit happen. They act in spite of fear. They can create opportunities out of thin air, out of nothing.
But, you don’t start making shit happen over night! You gotta roll around in the mud for a few months, maybe even years.
We choose to be the hero of our own story, or we don’t. It is that simple. It’s a choice.
To be successful, you will have to the hard things.
You will have to do the things that others are not willing to do.
Whether you are political or not, I don’t care – Donald Trump is president today because he was willing to do things that other politicians were not.
He was willing to schedule more rallies than other politicians. He worked longer hours. He hired better people for his campaign. He was willing to spend more of his own money than other politicians. He was willing to say the things that other politicians weren’t willing to say out of fear of what others would think of them. Obama was the same in many respects. And business is no different.
To be successful, you’ll have to do those things too. This is the only way. Think of all your heroes. Maybe John D. Rockefeller Sr. Warren Buffett. Andrew Carnegie. Elon Musk. Bill Gates. Kobe Bryant. Martin Luther King Jr. Muhammad Ali. Michael Jordan.
One thing I can virtually guarantee is that the icons I’ve listed did not waste one millisecond worrying about failure or what other people thought of them. If they did they would have failed. And they’d be the first to admit that.
You must be willing to do in spite of your fears.
You must be willing to invest in yourself.
(1) Massive action and (2) investing in myself freed me from mediocrity, feeling sorry for myself, being poor, being shy, all that bullshit.
It seems to have worked for these names below too…
“Old men are always advising young men to save money. That is bad advice. Don’t save every nickel. Invest in yourself. I never saved a dollar until I was forty years old.” – Henry Ford
“When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.” – Confucius
“There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long-range risks of comfortable inaction.” – John F. Kennedy
“This is a world of action, and not for moping and droning in.” – Charles Dickens
“Get action. Do things; be sane; don’t fritter away your time; create, act, take a place wherever you are and be somebody; get action.” – Theodore Roosevelt
“We become just by performing just action, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave action.” – Aristotle
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it.” – Dale Carnegie
“Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.” – Carrie Fisher
“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” – Benjamin Franklin
“By far, the best investment you can make is in yourself. If you invest in yourself, nobody can take it away from you. If I give you a car, and it’ll be the only car you’ll get for the rest of your life, you’d take care of it like you wouldn’t believe. Any scratch, you’d fix that moment. You’d read the owners manual. You’d keep it in the garage. You’d do all these things… You get exactly one mind and one body in this world, and you can’t start taking care of it when you’re 50.” – Warren Buffett
“The best investment I ever made was investing in myself, first and foremost.” – Mark Cuban
Remember, There Are Significant Risks to NOT Taking Action in Life…
People frequently focus on the downside of taking action.
Why don’t people think about the downside of NOT taking action / NOT trying?
Our brains aren’t wired to think that way. All we see is downside because it is right in front of us and we are more sensitive to negative emotion vs. positive emotion. And that is why most people won’t be successful – they’re afraid.
I can tell you this, fear of the downside of action has robbed more dreams than anything. ANYTHING. Lack of skill, talent, desire, intelligence, all pale in comparison to the amount of dreams and accomplishments lost out of fear of what may or may not happen.
If (1) you are an entrepreneur, (2) you want to buy companies, and (3) you want to show more than 100k/year on your personal tax return, then NOT getting into this program will cost you WAY more than any downside that could potentially come of it…
Not getting skin in the game, not investing in yourself will literally cost you your dreams, precious time in your prime years, your goals, your future, your purpose, and you may never “figure it out.” The sad truth is, there are a lot of people who never “figure it out” in life.
They are just coasting. Just wandering around. They are just reacting to life, when life could be reacting to them.
WTF is “downside” anyway. I no longer adhere to “downsides.” Successes are successes, and downsides/failures are just learning experiences to me now. They are part of the process. I don’t see failure anymore. You should think the same way if you want to be mega successful.
What if Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Einstein, Trump, or Gandhi constantly thought about the downside or potential failure? What if it consumed their daily thoughts? Well, I can tell you, we wouldn’t be talking about them. No one would know their name.
The doubt I am talking about can literally kill a person.
So, just remember when making any decision: There are risks to NOT taking the action.
Invest in Yourself... Choose the Package that Best Fits Your Situation...
We do allow existing clients to upgrade from the Gold Package to the Platinum Package at the difference of the two prices. So, if you want to lower the cost of your initial investment, you can always upgrade to the platinum program later.
Because there is only one of me and my time is limited, prices may need to be raised once the monthly Zoom calls become too crowded.
I value the quality of this program much more than the volume of projects/entrepreneurs/students I take on. Selectivity is paramount to being successful in business, M&A, hiring, and life.
We *never* discount prices unless it’s out of charity (i.e. a 3rd world entrepreneur with tremendous hunger).
