I worked for ambitious private equity firms . . .
Creating multi-billion dollar exits . . . .
UNTIL EVERYTHING CHANGED.
When my dad got cancer and died 9 months later . . . my entire perspective on business changed. I worked for relentless Private Equity firms that had one goal: Make as much money as possible buying businesses while paying the owners as little as possible. It was a classic case of the big guy taking advantage of the little guy. I wasn’t proud of the work . . . and eventually the stress of it got to me.
In the middle of a deal negotiation, I woke up in incredible pain . . . I had broken two molars on the right side of my jaw. And at the same time, my dad came back into my life. He left when I was two, and I’d lived up until 37 thinking he wanted nothing to do with me.
The truth was, he was ashamed. He went from being an incredibly successful entrepreneur before 40 . . . then he lost all his wealth. Sure, he eventually made the money back, but he made me realize something very important: The people I was working for were taking advantage of business owners that were just like my dad and I’d been totally blindsided by this reality my entire life.
Getting to know my old man was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Yet 12 months after the day we really connected, he died from an aggressive cancer. After living without my dad my whole life, and then finally getting to know him . . . I had an epiphany: I could no longer work solely in Private Equity. So, I quit and never looked back.
That’s why today, I work on the other side . . . with business owners who create real value. And I share with them the secret playbook of Private Equity—exactly how P.E. firms operate, building stunningly successful businesses—to help entrepreneurs like you scale beyond 8-figures so you can achieve a life-changing exit and realize the wealth and impact you deserve.
