Favorite quotes of the episode:
“It really comes down to trust in yourself.”
“The real economy is massive, it’s 50% of GDP and it’s over 90% of the private sector workforce and yet it’s completely detached from global capital.”
“Left or Right, actually, everybody wants the same things. Everybody wants the best for their family and the best for their children, but it’s become so polarized, you are just pigeonholed as one of them and that’s not conducive for debate or solving problems.”
In this episode, I talk with Jeremy Harbour. Jeremy is a serial investor and expert in Mergers & Acquisitions of Small to Medium Sized Businesses. As the founder of Unity Group, he’s advised on more than 300 acquisitions of both distressed and solvent businesses.
Jeremy speaks worldwide on the 14 acquisition deal structures that allow you to buy and sell businesses – something particularly important for entrepreneurs to hear at this time.
His commentary has been featured in the UK in The Sunday Times, Financial Times, The Money Channel, and he has been invited to Buckingham Palace and The British Houses of Parliament to advise on matters of business and enterprise.
5 Questions Segment
Q1. We know that the most successful and happy people have a morning routine, what do you do each morning or evening that sets your day up for success? I live between three countries and in each house, I have different routines. I get up and get the kids ready for school then I work, try to get all of my work done by 11 am or 12 pm, and then go work out.
Q2. What's your definition of Success? For me, it’s freedom, the ability to choose how my day is laid out.
Q3. What's your definition of Happiness? The cliche answer is wanting what you have not having what you want. I do have a list of what I’d like to own and that motivates me to do more.
Q4. What do you know now that you wish you would have known 10 years ago? I’m a self-taught merger and acquisitions guy and you are learning all the time and reinventing yourself all the time. I think growing up has really helped and a few good failures have really helped me to be more humble and been a useful life lesson.
Q5. What do you think is the biggest issue facing busy professionals today? Balance, this freedom I talked about. People are obsessed with working hard and you can be a busy fool. I’ve genuinely noticed there is an inverse correlation between working hard and wealth.
