Take a step back – Profit more – Cement your future

Owning a business should mean three things…

More time for the things you like.

More money to make your dreams happen.

And a truly solid future for the people you love.

But it’s not plain sailing.

In fact, most business owners simply don’t achieve these three things – instead, they’re working all the hours under the sun and stressing plenty in the process. 

Perhaps you know the feeling?

The romantic idea that drew you in way back when - of starting something from the ground up, going after organic growth, finding your own way to great profits – the long list of daily tasks has got in the way and it just doesn’t feel so attainable now.

In fact, you barely even remember why on earth you began in the first place.

You’re desperate to expand and take a step back, but the day-to-day doesn’t work unless you’re always there, in the thick of things, slogging away to keep the business ticking over. 

And, as you know, organic growth just doesn’t happen overnight.

It takes time, lots of thought and a team of talented people to see real change and make money that you’re happy with, that’ll allow you to live the life you always wanted.

But here’s the thing.

You don’t need to rely on organic methods to see growth and accelerate your wealth. We’ll teach you how.

How Guy Bartlett buys the right businesses to see fast growth

"I was a stressed out business owner back in 2003, striving to get my business to the next level. Then I figured out how to acquire other Owner Managed Businesses and I went on to buy £2.7 million of profitable revenue in my first two deals in just 6 months, which transformed my work and personal life. Will you let me show you how I did that?"

Here are some of the people Guy has coached. If you're thinking of buying a business, you're in good company! 

David Hall, MD Beeches Kids and Training ltd 

 "Guy's knowledge of business acquisition is second to none" 

Guy robustly identified flaws within the deal structure of the acquisition. He was also able to restructure the business deal to make it appealing to the vendor and to the bank to enable me to get finance.
 However, at the financing stage, there were a number of hurdles I wasn't accustomed to. Guy’s knowledge was exemplary and helped to navigate me through the maze of financing the acquisition. We were then able to agree a financing package with a high street bank with Guy's input.
Guy also guided me through all the due diligence and legal processes to completion and after the acquisition of the business, a number of challenges surfaced. His knowledge of business acquisition is second to none. He aptly resolved post acquisition disputes.
 I would highly recommend Guy to any budding entrepreneur who is seeking to acquire their first company or would like to build a portfolio of businesses

Matthew Taylor, Purple Property Group

If you're cut out for it, it's not an easy thing to buy a business by any stretch of imagination. But it's like anything, if you want to do it, and you've got that drive, you will give or Guy will give you everything you need.
Guy is great, he puts in a lot of effort, a lot of time, and his knowledge is unbelievable. Very recently he's helped me out with some stuff that was well beyond my capabilities and my non-exec chairman's capabilities, so Guy stepped in and worked with it. Can't praise him enough.

Andy Gosling, Web Developer

“I’d never really considered buying a business before. What triggered it was getting an email from an ecommerce site I order from saying, “We’re shutting up shop”. It’s in an area I’m into, and the business owner uses technology that I’ve used for many years, so I asked if he’d thought about selling the business.

There was a lot of back and forth, but once the conversations between the seller and me started to get serious I thought I’d better find out how to go about buying a business. I talked to my accountant, looked around a bit and came across Guy. I did some research and decided to book onto Guy’s one-day seminar in London.

Looking back, I got a lot out of it, and that single day helped me to purchase the ecommerce business. It gave me lots of pointers towards things I should look at, and a clear explanation of how to structure a deal. I really warmed to Guy, and I like his approach of looking at profitable businesses rather than buying a basket case business for £1 and turning it round. That has its place, but Guy’s approach is a less risky proposition.
I’ve since gone on to do the Intensive course and I’m now in talks with two different vendors. It’s early days but I’m building up my pipeline and I have a definite plan I’m working towards.”

Paul Pearse, Investor and Business Acquirer

If you take for instance, the Glazer family, an American family who purchased Manchester United. I'd heard they hadn't actually incurred any personal risk while doing that and I thought, that's impossible. This is well over a decade ago and then I came across the business buyers club, where they actually teach you how they did it and how I could do it.
What do I get from the Club? It's the  access to legal help, accountancy help ,insight into the pitfalls, what to look out for, what is profitable, what isn't profitable, etcetera. There's a lot. So I get a lot from The Club.

Scott Clark, MD Virtual Networking Ltd 

"I believe Guy saved me a lot of time and money. If only I'd known about him sooner!" 

I was lucky enough to be introduced to Guy by one of my business mentors. I was spending a lot of time trying to work out if it was a viable decision to purchase another similar business. Originally I sought advice from my account, solicitor, business coach and friends but all were pretty much sat on the fence whether I should or shouldn't purchase this business.
After a quick conversation with Guy and an email with all the relevant information Guy was able to come back to me with a straight to the point reason why I shouldn't buy the business along with a number of other reasons why this was a bad move.
I believe Guy has saved me a lot of time and money. If only I had known about him a couple of weeks sooner. I am sure at some stage we will be ready for an acquisition and when we are Guy will be the first person I call.
 Additionally I will be recommending him to anyone I know looking to buy or sell their business. Thanks again Guy!
