As the new owners of Sizzle Productions, a 16-year-old staging company, Ashley & Phil Stout stage vacant properties across the Chicagoland area, catering to homeowners, developers and real estate professionals.

On this episode, Phil discusses what led him to own a new business, becoming comfortable within a new industry, preparations that went into buying a business, and owning a business with a spouse.

“Deal fatigue is a real thing. Making sure that we’re not overwhelming the sellers who have to run a business still, was a huge thing we tried to focus on.” — Phil Stout
