Bob Karcher - Who Are the Joneses Anyway?

00:0000:00

bob-karcher-cropped-16.jpgWe discovered that helping others began with sharing our life stories. Personal life stories are powerful, and ours brought us to a realization that there had to be more to life. We are just like many of you--ordinary, hardworking people who discovered ourselves trapped in a race we didn't even realize we were in.

The more we shared our stories and what we learned, the more we realized we were not alone as others, in turn, shared their own personal journeys with us. Many life stories later, we have heard how overspending, gambling, materialism, approval addiction, and many other things have been railroading individuals and families away from the lives they were meant to lead. 


We've witnessed how low self-esteem and poor self-identity have trapped people into thinking they are not a good enough mom or dad, husband or wife, son or daughter--unless they could provide those special shoes, live in the right zip code, drive a certain car, or maintain a prestigious enough title. We've listened to story after story of fractured lives, struggling marriages, and hijacked dreams. 


Many people have told us they are stressed and working too much, and their families hardly know them. They are never home, their marriages are difficult, and they are barely hanging on. Their lives are like running a marathon on a treadmill--they put in all the work but don't get anywhere.


Others tell us they have it "all"--everything life has to offer. Yet, deep down, they know they were created for more and want their lives to count for something more meaningful and have greater impact than just a collection of titles and possessions.


Still others don't have a clue who they are. They struggle each day searching for significance and acceptance. They try everything they can think of--social media, shopping, alcohol, drugs, new fashions, and more. No matter what they do, they can't seem to find contentment in any of it.


Some have passionately shared that they "hate" their life. They might have everything we think we're supposed to want: the home, the job, the cars, and all the toys. But they find themselves worn out from spending all of their time maintaining their possessions.


They have yet to learn that God is better than stuff.


This is exactly what God had shown us in our own lives--there was something better out there.


This is the same hope we want to help others discover. Not everybody hates their lives, but how many of us are really happy? How many of us are enjoying our lives and spending more time loving, giving, and experiencing freedom, rather than the opposite? How many of us are really content? Is true contentment even possible?


It's time to live our lives with a new perspective. Join us on what we call a "Joneses Journey" and you will learn how to discover who you are and why you are here so you can live the intentional, authentic life you were created for.

Transcript:

Bill: Okay, so it’s your first chance at selling your business, here’s some great wisdom from somebody who’s done it many times, Rick Usher.

Rick: I think the realism we talked about, first of all: what is my business really worth? People have these proprietary feelings about their business, and they think often times it’s worth a lot more than it is, that’s the first thing. The second thing is that they’ve gotta be realistic as to how they’re gonna make this transition. I think it’s very unlikely for most business sellers to find a buyer who’s gonna walk up and write them a check, so they need to figure out and plan how they are gonna exit this thing, whether it’s seller carry-back financing, whether it’s, as we just discussed, they’re gonna find somebody internally who can take over and generate the revenue to pay the seller, or whether it’s some other alternative. That’s the biggest challenge, I think.

Transcript: 

Bill: What's the best way to use Twitter and other social media? We ask expert Tim Templeton. 

Tim: I just had a friend ask me today, I don't really get Twitter, what is the value? And I said, you know, it's 2 things, it's self-promotion, or business promotion in his case, and it's research. So, if you want people to know who you are and what you're doing, you create content, you create blog content. You want people to see it, one of the best ways to get it out in front of people is to send out an announcement using Twitter. Likewise, if you're trying to find people in your ecosystem, your business, the analysts, the re-sellers, potential partners, you can find them by their activity on Twitter, you can interact with them, you can follow them, you can re-Tweet things that they're sending, and you can create a relationship that way, which is a lot easier than it used to be in the old days.

David Karofsky - Tips for Managing Challenges in Family Business

00:0000:00

David-Headshot-179x300.jpg

Host: Bill Black. Audio library: www.ExitCoachRadio.com. Bill Black interviews David Karofsky, who discusses the difficulties of family business issues, how to resolve conflicts, and the importance of understanding. New content daily - check back often!

Transcript: 

David: Whether you're a family or you're a family business, the difficulty that families often have is getting into a room and really talking about the issues, the challenges, the differences, the conflict that has happened either over the years that has built up, or a current situation that may be happening. And what happens is, the presenting issue isn't communication, the presenting issue is often, "I don't know how to pass this business down my son or my daughter who are in the business, and the two of them are never in alignment, and I don't know what I'm going to do." But, often, underlying in the inability to allow they to get into a room, allow them to be heard, as Steven Covy says, "seek first to understand, then be understood." And if families can abide by that, and be able to develop better ways to communicate, it's going to help alleviate a lot of the challenges that are presented in a family business."

Ken Sanginario - Building Value to Support Growth

Ken Sanginario discusses how to build value to support growth, and the importance of not taking shortcuts. 
New content daily - Check back often!

Transcript:
 
Ken: Most business owners believe that the only way they can build value in their companies is to aggressively grow sales or cut costs. And, as it turns out, both of those approaches are the wrong initial approaches to building values. Growing your company without building the infrastructure around the company to support the growth can actually destroy value, and cutting costs destroys long term value. But that's all they know, so when they get introduced to us and our platform, they realize all the other elements they have to put in place, develop, and get fully functional in order to be able to support growth.

Transcript: 

Bill: How can you motivate your employees to grow your company using your 401k plan? Listen to Harley Bjelland. 

Harley: Everyone's got a match in their 401k plan, well not everyone, but a lot of people have matches in their 401k plan, and they just do 50 cents on the dollar. What I've done, is I have a lot of clients that have a formula driven match. So, if we do, and I hate to use terms like ivada, but if we do ivada, which is basically a different method of profitability for the company, you're gonna get a bigger match. So, if we do 2 times ivada, you're gonna get 2 times the match, if we do 1 times ivada, you're gonna get 1 times the match, if you do half of it, we get half. And this is something that's really changed, I mean, honestly, I work with ESOPs a lot, ESOPS are Employee Stock Ownership Plans, and what it is is the employees all get to own the business. And when you communicate these things appropriately, I mean, literally, people stop stealing pens. It's a great situation.

Adam Lomax - Who wants Financing?

Adam Lomax of Oxygen Funding provides a quick tip.

We upload new content daily so please check back often!

Transcript:

Bill: What’s the difference between a business owner wanting financing and business owner needing financing, and how will it effect where they want to go get that capital? Here’s lending expert Adam Lomax.

Adam: Wanting financing often times comes around from having a marketing plan, having an idea of where you’re going, having customers that are in the wings or perhaps even starting working with customers in the early days, knowing they’re gonna grow, knowing you’re gonna need more money to support that growth. That’s a good situation. It’s a challenge, it’s a business challenge, but it’s a good challenge. Versus, I haven’t paid my taxes and I need to catch up on that, or I can’t cover payroll next week. And those are also challenges, but those are a little more tougher challenges. Neither one is necessarily bad, I mean you can certainly take care of those short-term challenges and return back to the former, but it’s just different from the financing perspective.

We add new content daily, so come back often! 

Transcript: 

Jim: There are many internet based communication tools that are available. I use my cell phone for everything, so the first thing that I would recommend to people is, if they are going to be traveling, even through the United States, you know, don’t use hotel phones, use your cell phone. And the reason for that, we all know there are a lot of charges that get tacked on for telephone use in the hotels, that’s the first thing. The second thing to keep in mind is that there are tools that are around there, that are internet based, that will help control your costs. I will say, though, that controlling your communication costs from abroad is a whole other subject, because if you are a Verizon or an AT&T user, or a Sprint user, and you are traveling abroad, there are a whole other list of rules associated with that.

Transcript: 

Bill: There are many ways to grow your business, and one of the most effective ways is to reduce the risk, or de-risk your business. Here’s Dan Whittaker.

Dan: De-risking is really, if you’re gonna go through a process to transition out of the business, what are the things that can jeopardize the sale, or jeopardize the value? Are there any lawsuits or pending litigation that can crash the business? Another one is customer concentrations. Is your business operating with one customer that represents 40, 50, 60% of your business and if you lost that customer, the value of your business is essentially wiped out? And, how do you go through to go ahead and solidify the customer or take of that? Is the business highly dependent on a couple of people? So is the CEO, the owners, are they so involved if they step out, then there’s nobody else there to run the business? From and outsiders buyer’s standpoint, they need to see that the business is gonna run on its own.

Host: Bill Black Audio Library: www.ExitCoachRadio.com

Roger Laidig discusses life choices, hope, and messages you can take away from life and relationships. 

Transcript: 

Roger: I was advised to quit work and I was advised to lay low, but I had to realize, that was not my destination, that was just where I was at at that day. There's a whole lot more life to come, and the choices I would make if I had a clearer vision of where I wanted to go gave me hope, and hope does miracles in terms of, in my case recovering. But the biggest thing I took away from that was, I began thinking, 'what do I want my life to look like 20 years down the road?' I went to a few funerals around that time, and there wasn't anybody talking about cars, or buildings, or houses, they were talking about people and relationships that they had with other people.

Transcript: 

Ganesh: There are various Visa options for work, but the one main one is the H1-B Visa. There are only 65,000 of those Visas available every year, and they're first come, first serve. The demand for those Visas is vastly more than the supply, so of those 65,000 about 225,000 apply for that. So, the remainder of those people are put into a lottery, and if they win then they get one of these 65,000 Visas or they get the ability for the immigration service to adjudicate them. That runs on the fiscal year of the government, which is October 1st. We can begin filing April 1st. So, if you contact me January/February of each beginning year, then that would probably be the appropriate time so that we can put together a properly filed petition in April.

Transcript: 

Jan: There are lots of good times to mediate. One of them is before a lawsuit is filed. Another is right before trial, now we're really gonna have to spend the money, take the risk, put 12 strangers in a box, inconvenience people...they're not gonna understand me, and maybe I'm not gonna get what I want out of it, anyways. A third is even during trial. I had an arbitration that happened to an age discrimination matter, and I listen to this old guy for 4 or 5 hours, and the next morning I said to the two lawyers, "do you guys want to talk?" and sure enough, they really did. He had been able to get everything off of his chest, they were able to work it out. So, there's lots of interval spaces, and part of it is you the disputant, and your lawyer, have to talk about when's the right time, when's the best time.

David Sherak - As You Begin Your Planning Don’t Overlook These Points

David Sherak, Partner-Vogt,Resnick & Sherak discusses several important planning agenda items as you start to think about your overall Succession plans.

Transcript: 

 

David: One of the important things is: make sure your ownership structure of your business is taken care of. If you do have a trust, make sure that the share certificate for a corporation, or the operating agreement, identifies the trustee of that trust as the owner of that property. Also, make sure that the instrument doesn’t have any special individual that’s appointed to deal with, perhaps a dispute resolution process, that might be in conflict with the terms of trust’s successor trustee or executor under those instruments. Make sure that your advisors are well aware of this planning, including your financial advisors, like the example with the collateral commitments of the bank: the bank didn’t know that this individual was  also naming them as a trustee of his various trusts, and ultimately that bank also held the loans, so it didn’t fit within their administration parameters to basically service their own debt, and resign the loans and deal with that collateral commitment. So making sure that all of your advisors are aware of these instruments is important.

John Howard - Which Audit is Right for You?

00:0000:00

john_howard.jpgHost: Buck Blanton. Audio library: www.ExitCoachRadio.com. 

John Howard discusses retirement plans, choosing audits, and how you can determine which process is right for your business. New content daily - tune in on iTunes!

Transcript: 

John: Typically, in these retirement plans, when you exceed 120 participants, then that first year when you receive 120, you are subject to an audit. You are considered a large plan at that point under the Department of Labor and the IRS standards, and you need to submit an audit. Now, the problem is the next step: Once you determine you need audit, is what type of audit, because there are different audits with retirement plans. There's what we call a limited scope audit, which and auditor does not need to do as much work as with a full scope audit, and the difference with those would be, if the plan assets are held by a financial institution such as a bank or an insurance company, they can certify that the plan assets are what they are, the transactions have been posted properly to the participant's accounts, the allocation of earnings to the participant's accounts is accurate, then we can accept that under the Department of Labor standards.

John Foley - Are You Looking Forward To Buyers Looking Backwards?

About-John.jpgHere's a past highlight from one of our Guests. Find their full interview at www.ExitCoachRadio.com -- just click "Audio Library" in the "LISTEN" section and enter their name to hear all of their past interviews!

John Foley and David Shaffer discuss the benefits of preparing for due diligence early.

 

Transcript: 

Bill: How can you be prepared for what your buyer’s are going to be looking for? Here’s expert John Foley.

John: What we usually share with a client is that if they are looking for an exit-strategy, particularly looking towards an investment firm, they’re gonna have to demonstrate not only a future revenue projection, but also historical performance. So, if we’re in a start-up mode, it’s not realistic to expect that someone’s gonna jump in like Google and buy you on day one. You really need to have that 3 to 5 year history behind you. So, for us, it’s saying, start at any time, the earlier the better, and based on where you are in your life cycle, let’s determine what the appropriate target exit is, what is the multiple target, how are we gonna reach that value?
