Hello and welcome to our first episode of 2023 – a very happy new year to you all.
This week, Jonathan talks with Mastermind member John, an experienced dealmaker who sold his own business a couple of years ago, and has since acquired six different businesses in his chosen sector – osteopathic and physiotherapy practices.
In less than two years John’s new group has gone from zero to two and a half million in annual revenue – he has another acquisition lined up, ready to go – as well as ambitions acquisition plans for the coming year.
One of the big lessons I’ve learned is that if you start off on a hostile footing with a business seller, you might as well walk away straight away.
We’ve left money on the table by not managing fee increases quickly enough.
At the beginning I made a point of talking to all the senior fee earners and saying, this is what the vision is, and making it clear that I wanted them to be part of it.
It’s not just the speed of doing a deal that’s important, but also the speed of engaging with the practice sellers.
