In segment three, you hear directly from Mayumi and Aaron where they talk about the street smarts of small business on how to buy a business, grow your profits and make it run without you, while also discussing how to get the most out of your business when you are selling.

In segment four, Aaron answers the following questions: 

  • I’ve been listening to your podcast for the last three months, and I really appreciate all the business lessons you’re teaching. It’s rare to find people who walk the talk, and you are definitely those people. I want to buy a good business, and you’ve talked about being the smart guy in a dummy industry. That makes a lot of sense because I can really stand out if most of my competitors are not very business-savvy. I guess my question is: What are the dummy industries? How do I tell if business owners in an industry are business-savvy or not?
  • I just read your book The Lifestyle Business Owner, and I loved it. In your book, you talk about how you and your partner ran a retail business that struggled. You decided to walk away, and your partner decided to stick it out. My business hasn’t been doing well, and I am trying to decide whether to walk away or stick it out. How do you decide whether or not to keep going when you have a struggling business?
  • Is there any business I can buy and run part-time? Or do I have to run the business full-time once I buy it?
