Episode 515: How Acquisitions Fuel Long-Term Market Leadership

Welcome to a new episode of Business Lunch. You ever feel stuck in a business rut?  I’ll teach you how to steer your business towards a whole new horizon – by acquiring another one! Takeovers, mergers, and the strategic magic behind buying your way to the top. Whether you’re a serial acquirer with a taste for expansion or a budding entrepreneur looking for your first big win, this episode’s got something for you. I’ll be revealing the secrets of the Acquisition Wheel, a roadmap to spotting those golden opportunities, navigating the tricky world of market share, and ultimately, launching your company’s growth into the stratosphere. 


“I’ve instantly doubled my market share overnight the minute that I close that deal. That’s the power of acquisitions.”

“One of the easiest ways to grow very, very fast, to grow a team, is to just acquire one that already exists in another company.”

“If we could get our existing customers to spend twice as much, we can double the size of our business simply with the same number of customers we’ve got.”
