Grow Your Empire

When it comes to building a business, Ray strongly believes in asking the following fundamental questions.

  • Why would anyone want to buy your business?
  • Can the buyer plug and play with what you’re offering?
  • How tightly is your brand tied with your company?
  • Is your name/persona tired to your brand?
  • Do you have an A-team in place? It’s important to note that often times buyers won’t need your team. They want infrastructure to scale. It’s important to think about this when building your business.
  • Have a star player in place.
  • Build for the future and yet act in the present. Pay your taxes, do legal due diligence, and have great customer service. Be clear with who your customer is. 
  • Understand your demographic
    • You want to be able to tell your buyer who the ideal customer is

  • Build relationships with your future buyer
    • Know, like, and trust your buyer
