I really enjoyed learning about Walker's process and the many fascinating statistics he brings to prove why acquisition is normally the way to go. The second half of the book drills down to details what one needs to be mindful of throughout the acquisition process, from negotiation to looking at the balance sheet and checking cash flow. A great book that outlines another way of launching ones career as an entrepreneur, rather than just starting from scratch. Readers less familiar with financial principles will also find some great insight on the KPIs to look for when considering an acquisition. This book grossly oversells the opportunity of entrepreneurship through acquisition and irresponsibly excludes numbers that go against the book's pitch.

If entrepreneurs are investing the money anyway, why wouldn’t they acquire something already established to begin with? I would have rated it higher if there were fewer typos, and if it didn't read as much as a checklist (though that is likely appropriate). Its strength lies in its ability to resonate universally, eliminating the need for convoluted explanations.It's highly addictive to get core insights on personally relevant topics without repetition or triviality. There are a lot of people doing this, and they are unlocking trillions in value and living the entrepreneur lifestyle.

Both Apple and Google state that they ensure that only users who have actually downloaded the app can submit a review.Hablar directamente con la persona y decirle que utilice el servicio de un broker dado para trabajar la valorización, el que luego me dará preferencia. Also, I wish the author went into more detail in how to find target companies in practice and spent some time discussing the details of acquisitions/exits he has been involved with. They were the people who took a product market fit business and turned them into large scale businesses.

Existing businesses provide acquisition entrepreneurs with an established market, so that they don’t have to worry if they are too early or if another company with more funding and a better line up will beat them to creating the “market. The strategy outlined is spot on and is the type of advice I personally have given dozens of people over the years.Great book - incredibly comprehensive guide on acquisition entrepreneurship from why it can be much more lucrative than doing a startup to a full soup to nuts guide on how to find, acquire and run an acquisition. He argues such a move is safer, faster, and capable of generating more cash flow compared to starting from scratch. I took away a lot of general info to help my current business and will definitely revisit this book a few times in the near future. You need to be willing to create a business plan and pitch it to banks or other potential investors.

The only reason I am not giving it a 5 star is because I have not yet implemented what I read, I just happened to have the opportunity to be a partner in a business so I am implementing what i read in the following book: "Traction" by Gino Wickman.It is a useful guide providing potent strategies and actionable insights that could help readers seize opportunities in the acquisition entrepreneurship landscape. The author’s overview on business strategy and key principles like Porter’s Five Forces and disruption is one of the clearest, most useful business summaries I have ever read. A pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. With jobs not being able to keep up with college graduate demand, entrepreneurship has never been more important. While highly readable, the book is intended as a cursory introduction and does not delve into the minutiae of the process.
