Unlocking Success: Navigating the Scalable Impact

Welcome to a transformative episode of The Business Lunch Podcast where we dive into the world of business scaling and preparation for a successful exit! In today's session, we'll be exploring the Scalable Impact Framework (SPV), an innovative tool designed to propel businesses to new heights.Roland & Ryan introduces the SPV, a comprehensive approach focusing on three critical areas: leveraged sales, bankable profit, and transferable value. We begin with a deep dive into leveraged sales, where we question attendees about their growth engines. Are they generating over $10k per month? Do they hold authority across multiple channels? Is their business model truly scalable? It's all about understanding and documenting the mechanisms that drive substantial growth.Then, we shift gears to discuss bankable profit. Here, we explore the concept of a $0 budget, emphasizing the importance of tracking every expense. We delve into margin maximizers to enhance the average value derived from each customer and unravel the intricacies of a cash flow waterfall. This segment is all about maximizing profits and ensuring financial health.The journey doesn't end there! We also address transferable value, examining key elements like operating system documentation, the efficiency of the team, and structuring a business to be exit ready. Attendees get hands-on with a practical worksheet, rating each component as green, yellow, or red. The aim is clear: identify and address the weaknesses that hinder scaling.Lastly, we share effective strategies to turn those daunting red areas into success stories. We talk about documenting growth engines, setting pragmatic budgets, and building robust operating systems. The episode wraps up with a call to action for founders: engage with advisors, discuss solutions, and take meaningful steps to elevate their businesses.So, grab your notebook, and let’s embark on this journey to make your business not just grow, but thrive and become exit ready!Highlights:"The more valuable you are to your business, the less valuable your business is.""Oftentimes entrepreneurs, we pride ourselves in being able to swoop in and save the day, we could do anything, we could do everything. And if what we do, right, cool, you're trapped.""You don't want to be owned by your business, but you also don't want somebody else to have blackbox what they do to where you're terrified, if they would leave or quit."Timestamps:0:00 - Entrepreneur exits and profitability4:10 - The importance of diversifying businesses to avoid financial instability.6:56 - Scaling a business and exit strategies.10:24 - Business growth and leadership exits.16:12 - Leadership roles and exits for CEOs.20:28 - Entrepreneurship, investing, and company growth.23:55 - Scaling and exit strategies for businesses.27:35 - Exit readiness for businesses.33:23 - The benefits of being an owner-operator vs. a non-owner operator in a business sale.35:22 - Entrepreneurship, sales, and scalability.45:43 - Business growth strategies and documentation.49:36 -Scalability.52:45 - Acquisitions and due diligence in business.55:50 - Business financial management and growth strategies.1:03:24 - Building high-output teams with exercises and tools.1:06:42 - Business exits and scaling.1:09:16 - Scaling businesses by identifying and addressing red areas.Live Links :CONNECT • Ask Roland a question HERE.RESOURCES: • 7 Steps to Scalable...

Collaborate, Don't Negotiate: Effective Strategies for Making Win-Win Deals

In this episode, Roland Frasier shares his valuable insights on successful deal-making. With a diverse background spanning real estate, accounting, securities, and law, Roland brings a unique perspective to negotiations.He emphasizes the power of collaboration over competition and shares techniques to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes.Key timestamps:[00:01:06] Roland's Background: Roland shares his diverse background in real estate, accounting, securities, and law. He emphasizes his extensive experience negotiating thousands of deals, both for clients and himself.[00:02:16] Reframing Negotiation as Collaboration: Frasier challenges the competitive nature of negotiation and proposes a collaborative approach. He suggests focusing on a common goal instead of opposing interests, creating a win-win situation for all parties involved.[00:06:43] The Power of Physical and Psychological Positioning: Frasier discusses the significance of both psychological and physical positioning in negotiations. He advises sitting on the same side of the table as the other party to foster collaboration and eliminate barriers.[00:08:09] Losing by Winning: Frasier cautions against the dangers of winning a negotiation at the expense of fairness. He shares personal experiences of aggressively pursuing the best deal, only to have agreements fall apart later. He emphasizes the importance of staying within the "zone of fairness" to ensure fair and sustainable deals.[00:14:36] Taking the Temperature of the Room: Frasier advises readers to "take the temp" and read the emotional state of everyone involved in the negotiation. Understanding the motivations, emotions, and satisfaction levels of each party helps in determining the appropriate approach and timing for collaboration. He stresses the significance of creating a positive and receptive environment for negotiation.[00:17:23] The Law of Price and Terms: Frasier introduces the "Law of Price and Terms" as a powerful negotiation tool. He explains that if the seller sets the price, the buyer can leverage the terms to their advantage, and vice versa. By invoking this law and focusing on the terms rather than haggling on the price, negotiators can create more favorable outcomes and find mutually beneficial agreements.[00:20:40] Play It Forward: Frasier emphasizes the importance of playing out various scenarios in negotiations, similar to how one would strategize in chess or anticipate moves in sports. He encourages listeners to respond thoughtfully instead of reacting emotionally. By considering all the facts, circumstances, and potential outcomes, negotiators can make more informed decisions and secure advantageous results. Frasier shares a personal success story where playing out scenarios led to a $4.2 million win in a negotiation.[00:24:54] Empathy and Understanding: Frasier emphasizes the importance of empathizing with the other party in a negotiation or collaboration. By setting aside personal desires and focusing on the concerns, needs, and challenges of the other side, negotiators can find points of empathy and work towards mutually beneficial outcomes. Understanding the motivations and emotions of the other party can lead to more effective negotiations and positive results.[00:29:22] Just Say No: Frasier introduces the concept of "Just Say No" as a negotiation tactic. He explains that offers, even low ones, should be entertained and responded to, as they are precious opportunities for negotiation. Instead of dismissing a low offer without a response, negotiators should articulate their reasons, provide context, and express their position. By respectfully declining unfair offers and maintaining a strong position, negotiators can protect their interests...

In this episode, we will hear the story of Jonathan Cronstedt, also known as JCron, who went from bankruptcy to building a $2 billion company. He is going to share with us about the book he is writing: Billion Dollars Bullseye: My 7 Almost Never Fail Double Unicorn Strategy and will discuss valuable lessons for all people involved in the business.JCron also shares his journey with Kajabi, which he helped grow from a $6 million ARR company with 25 employees to a $2 billion valuation with over 400 team members. He discusses the challenges of dealing with success and how he struggled to figure out what to do after achieving such a significant milestone. Key takeaways:[00:00:12] Roland Frasier introduces Jonathan and shares his background story.[00:03:31] JCron talks about the impact of working with Roland, his generosity, and how he has influenced his business life.[00:07:56] The first three areas to focus on are foundational: purpose, profit, and product. Without these concepts, the business will not scale. Everything else serves as an amplifier.[00:20:55] Building in public allows you to move from a push strategy to a pull strategy. It attracts people to your business and helps articulate and optimize your purpose. This will be the biggest trend of entrepreneurship in the coming decade.[00:22:57] Profit is essential in your business, and knowing your numbers is key to making intelligent decisions.[00:27:33] Product is the single biggest lever in your business, and having a distinguished product and service is crucial for success.[00:28:59] The prestigious customer experience was an amplifier that changed the game for Kajabi.[00:43:40] Persuasion: Persuasion is an amplifier for your business, and it should pick up where marketing leaves off. The ultimate persuasion framework is based on Blair Warren's quote: "People will do anything for those who encourage their dreams, justify their failures, allay their fears, confirm their suspicions, and help them throw rocks at their enemies." Persuasion is about getting people intellectually engaged and emotionally charged to take action.[00:47:49] People: The final area of focus is people. To attract and retain A players, you need to have solid systems in place that support your people strategy. Hire slow and fire fast, and use "good goodbyes" to give people a respectable send-off when the business has grown in a different direction.[00:51:00] Conclusion: By focusing on purpose, product, profit, promotion, persuasion, and people, you can expand your target and hit your billion dollar bullseye.[00:53:28] Answering participant questions.[00:59:00] Jonathan advises focusing on your internal purpose to guide you through an existential crisis.[01:04:42] Roland Frasier emphasizes the importance of having a continuity of purpose in entrepreneurship even after the exit of a business. Having multiple businesses that one enjoys can provide continuity of purpose.[01:09:23] Jonathan Cronstedt answers a question on retention and emphasizes the financial and product functions of retention in a business. He also talks about net dollar retention as the holy grail of a business.[01:12:04] The inflection points for raising capital are driven by intellectual capital needs and industry changes, not financial needs.Ask Roland and Ryan a question HERE.RESOURCES:7 Steps to Scalable workbookGet my book, Zero Down, FREEThanks so much for

5 Hacks to Increase ROI In Your Business

In this podcast episode, Roland Frasier shares his expertise on how to increase ROI in your business despite inflation. With inflation being the highest it's been in over 40 years, it's becoming harder and harder for businesses to make a profit.Roland provides five specific hacks that can be applied by business owners and marketers to optimize their pricing strategies, adjust their product and customer mix, optimize their value ladder, optimize profit-based offers, and acquire across their value chain.Key Timestamps:[00:26] Inflation is driving up costs, making it harder for businesses to profit. To combat this, you can either fire staff and produce less profit, try to cut expenses, or become a better marketer.[02:43] First hack: Optimizing your pricing strategy is one of the easiest ways to increase profits. When you raise prices, every bit of increased income goes to the bottom line profit, and there is no additional cost.[03:47] To figure out your current margin, take the trailing 12 months of profits divided by the trailing 12 months of sales. Once you know this, you can calculate how a 1% price increase will affect profits.[06:30] Testing prices regularly are important. Even if you are marketing for someone else, price testing your offers is crucial to increasing profits.[07:00] Increasing prices can lead to a significant increase in profit margins, while decreasing prices can have an inverse effect, decreasing profit margins.[08:33] There are alternatives to raising prices, such as changing the pricing model, refocusing price attention, and repricing to performance.[13:00] Annual volume bonuses, increasing product/service efficiency, and upselling/cross-selling are some strategies that can help recapture lost profit margins.[15:03] There are many different types of promotions and discounts that businesses can offer, including off-invoice promotions, rebates, affiliate discounts, and tiered affiliate programs.[17:43] To ensure that you're not losing money due to multiple coupon codes or forgotten discounts, it's important to keep track of all purchase incentives and regularly test them.[19:47] Businesses should use these incentives but be aware of their true cost and how they affect profit margin. It's important to regularly assess and calculate the actual profit margin after applying these incentives.[20:58] Action steps for improving profitability, including setting target pocket prices by customer size, type, and segment; eliminating or capping stacking of discounts; repricing or eliminating products that are sub-margin; prioritizing selling to high-profit customers, and thinking about off-invoice costs.[22:52] Second hack: Adjusting product and customer mix, focusing on acquiring customers that make the most money, and rethinking value ladders can lead to improved profitability.[26:10] Third hack: Rethinking the value ladder by starting high and down-selling can also improve profitability. The importance of testing and optimizing the value ladder, and adding something at the top of the value ladder that would make the whole business significantly more profitable.[28:26] Fourth hack: Create or add low-cost, high-margin products or services that have high perceived value and produce a high profit.[30:02] Consider offering one on one coaching or product setup help, automation, done-for-you or done-with-you services, extended coaching or membership, extended warranty, group coaching, live event tickets, upgrades, masterminds, or user groups, sales enhancements, and upgrades, tech support or training packages.[32:55] Use bundles to improve average order value and margin; consider sensitivity testing price, quality, and quantity sensitivity offers.[34:12] Create new value propositions for customers by identifying what they value and are willing to pay more for, such as...

You can also add modifiers such as length, style, and format.[30:05] Creating a marketing campaign: You can prompt the AI to act as an advertiser, copywriter, or ad exec and create a campaign to promote a product or service. [32:20] Recruiting plan: Prompt the AI to act as a recruiter and provide information about job openings. The AI can come up with strategies for sourcing qualified applicants, including social media, networking events, career fairs, and employee referrals.[36:21] AI can analyze Amazon reviews to identify the most common pain points and positive comments about a product.

The Opportunity in Acquiring Established Businesses

Should you start your own business or buy an existing one? On today's episode, host Roland Frasier explains why buying an already successful business might make more sense than building one from scratch.

How to Only Do the Deals You Love with Trevor Jenson

Want to start consulting for equity? Would it make sense to be a general consultant advising everyone about everything?On today's episode, host Roland Frasier talks to Trevor Jenson, a deal junkie with a reputation for being able to raise money and close deals. Trevor shares how he was able to buy a company without money out of pocket and how consulting for equity allowed him to cross paths with Dwight Freeney and Michael Jordan. If you want to be successful when consulting for equity, you must pick a niche. After consulting for 200 companies in just under a year and a half, Trevor's consulting company still failed to take off. Why? Because they consulted for all types of businesses. You can't be an expert at everything. And soon enough, clients will see past your lack of depth in a particular area of expertise.   IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL LEARN:How to buy companies with no money out of pocketWhy you should consider investing in the eSports spaceThe power of consulting for equityYou need different mentors at different levels of growthNiche: Required or unnecessary when consulting for equity?First step to raising money through a fundTesting the viability of your idea using dataLINKS AND RESOURCES MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Ask Roland and Ryan a question HERE.OUR PARTNERS:7 Steps to Scalable workbookGet a free proposal from Conversion FanaticsGet 3% cash back on your ad spend with AdCardGet my book, Zero Down, FREEThanks so much for joining us this week.

We all know that consulting for equity works. But did you know it's possible to consult for equity in significantly higher-valued companies? On today's episode, Roland Frasier and Jonathan Cronstedt continue their discussion on why consulting for equity is by far the fastest way any consultant, coach, or industry expert can grow their wealth.

Preventing Your Employees from 'Quiet Quitting'

What is quiet quitting, and should business owners be worried about it?  On today's episode, hosts Roland and Ryan tackle version 2.0 of the Great Resignation - quiet quitting. Despite the name, Roland explains that the term has nothing to do with actually quitting your job. Employees still show up for work but only perform tasks on the job requirements and nothing more.

Nonetheless, quietly dropping the responsibilities you believe are beyond your job description is not a sustainable solution. There are other better ways to achieve what you want, Ryan says.Tune in to learn more about the quiet quitting craze that's taking TikTok and the workforce by storm and what you as a business owner can do to address quiet quitters n your team. IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL LEARN:What is quiet quitting?The reasoning behind quiet quitting Telltale signs of a quiet quitterUnderstand employment is a mutually exploitative relationship How business owners can deal with quiet quittersThe problem with mismatched employee expectationsWhy quiet quitting is a leadership problemAcceptable reasons for employee terminationLINKS AND RESOURCES MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Ask Roland and Ryan a question HERE.OUR PARTNERS:7 Steps to Scalable workbookGet a free proposal from Conversion FanaticsGet 3% cash back on your ad spend with AdCardGet my book, Zero Down, FREEThanks so much for joining us this week.
