Aaron Stahl: The Power of Having the Right People

Episode 7

July 30, 2019

Episode 7 of M&A Unplugged, Aaron Stahl: Securing an SBA Loan, is now live! If you are looking to maximize the value of your business acquisition or sale – the M&A Unplugged Podcast was designed with you in mind.

In this episode, Domenic and Aaron Stahl discuss: Aaron’s journey to becoming an entrepreneur at 22 and growing P3 to the Franchise business it is today, how he switched from a solopreneur running his lifestyle business to growing the company through the acquisition, the speed bumps that came up during the sale unrelated to price, the integration after acquisition.

Key Takeaways:

  • Have your vision and strategy before you undertake a potential acquisition.
  • Understand the seller’s motivations and take care with their legacy.
  • Have an intermediary to help in negotiations.
  • The time to start planning your integration is the day you start planning your acquisition.
  • People are the most important asset you acquire when acquiring a business.

“I would recommend everybody to employ a business broker. That level of insulation that you have between buyer and seller helps keep the warm and fuzzies and the good will intact.” —  Aaron Stahl
