In segment three, Aaron and Mayumi discuss the importance of financial statement and how to use them effectively to run your business.  

In segment four, Aaron answers the following questions: 

  • I want to get better at sales, but I hate getting rejected.  What can I do to get better at sales? 
  • In your book, you talk about how you bought an auto repair shop when you didn’t know anything about cars. I like the idea and I am also thinking about buying an auto repair shop. I also don’t know anything about cars. Here’s my question. Right now, there is a service manager in place who is very knowledgeable about cars. If the service manager quits on me, it’ll take a few weeks to hire another service manager, and I’ll have to work at the front counter in the meantime and talk to customers about their cars. How can I talk to the customers without sounding stupid or clueless about cars if the service manager ever gets sick or quits on me?
  • When I get into business, is it better to sign a long-term lease to lock in good lease rates, or should I keep the lease short to remain flexible? I am a little worried about signing a long-term lease because the landlord requires a personal guarantee. If I sign a 10-year lease at a great location with great rates, but my business doesn’t make it that long, I’ll be personally liable to keep paying the rent. Is signing a long-term lease risky, or is it a good idea?
  • I’ve seen real estate workshops where they teach all sorts of creative financing strategies to buy real estate. How much creative financing takes place in the world of buying businesses?
