I'm looking for a single business to purchase that I can operate for the rest of my career.
Growing up, I was surrounded by different flavors of entrepreneurship. My dad was a dentist and owned his own practice. His ability to provide for our family financially, while still attending every soccer practice, baseball tournament, and marching band competition, stuck with me.
I thought I might start a business of my own one day, but now I'm more excited about buying an existing business. My experience in the corporate world taught me that I'm better at building upon something that already exists than starting something from scratch.
My goal is to buy a business from a business owner who is ready to retire, or ready to start planning for retirement.
Simply put, I want to buy a stable or growing business with a long history of customer satisfaction and profitability.
There are a lot of ways to make money - so it's tough to list every industry I find interesting - but the business I purchase will meet some of the criteria below:
I started my first business when I was in high school. I built websites for small businesses in my hometown - which eventually morphed into a website and URL brokerage that still exists today.
After I graduated from Texas Tech, I spent 5 years in Dallas as a consultant with Alvarez & Marsal, where I helped clients solve a variety of business problems.
Next, I spent 2.5 years in Atlanta working for Accel-KKR, a private equity firm that acquires software companies. I split my time between (1) helping our companies with their operations, and (2) finding new companies to invest in.
In 2022, I left Accel-KKR to look full-time for a business to acquire. I’m excited to work with you to figure out if I am (or am not) a good fit for the next chapter of your business.
Send me a message if you are considering selling your business, or if you want to chat about the acquisition process or other opportunities.
