Will your business succeed after you leave? Can the new owners expect the business to perform at the same level or even better after you exit?   On today's episode, host Roland Frasier goes through the benefits of having exit-ready structures in your business.

Having exit-ready structures helps mitigate the risk and maintain the perceived value of the business. Listen in to learn more about the benefits of developing exit-ready structures in your business and create an attractive offering by strengthening its value proposition.

If you're a visionary entrepreneur and you've reached a point where you feel like you need some help, you don't need a manager.

As Roland explains, an operator takes the visionary entrepreneur's vision and gives it the operational support it needs to turn into reality. If you can't step away from your company without daily operations collapsing, you need an operator. Tune in to learn how and where to find an operator that's the perfect fit for your business.    IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL LEARN: Who is a business operator How to hire and recruit an operator The primary function of a CEO in the company  Why you need a documented operating system before hiring an operator Difference between a manager and an operator The operator personality type How to set your operator up for success How visionaries sabotage their operators LINKS AND RESOURCES MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: Ask Roland and Ryan a question http://businesslunchpodcast.com/ask (HERE).

What is your company's value? Can that value be replicated if you decide to leave? On today's episode, host Roland Frasier breaks down transferable value, what it means, and how value drivers significantly impact your company's market valuation. Transferable value is simply what a business is worth to someone else if the owner decides to leave. If you have plans of one day exiting your business, you must understand the process of creating and maintaining transferable value. However, the thing to note here is that transferable value is not the same as profit. Just because your company makes a ton of money yearly does not necessarily mean it has transferable value.   Listen in to learn how you can build transferable value in your business and create an exit plan that dramatically increases your company's value drivers.   IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL LEARN: What is transferable value? The five most common ways to exit a business How to move your business towards a higher valuation Factors that impact the growth of a business Industries with the biggest expansion opportunities The three main components of building transferable value How to build a stable and motivated team capable of growing your business.

All business plans are full of assumptions. And while we can't accurately say whether a business will be profitable, we can focus on making educated assumptions.   On today's episode, host Roland Frasier tackles mental models and business assumptions. He also goes through basic strategies world-leading thinkers use to solve complex problems.  We all make assumptions. In fact, anything you can't prove is an assumption. Unfortunately, many of our assumptions are incorrect, which is why Roland believes business owners must embrace the idea of first principles. The first principles concept is essentially breaking down complex problems and then reassembling them from the ground up. All this starts with questioning your beliefs and drilling down to the foundational truths of a problem. Tune in to learn how you can stop making assumptions in your business, see the bigger picture, and make decisions based on actual facts.  IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL LEARN: The advantages of questioning your beliefs and assumptions in business Validation testing and why it's so important First principles and the building blocks of true knowledge Why focus groups don't always give an accurate picture of reality Comparing the effectiveness of customer surveys versus online reviews How to create a business model based on facts and not assumptions How world-leading experts solve problems through fundamental assumptions  What happens when we stop assuming and start testing facts?

In July 2022, Elon Musk withdrew his $44 billion bid to take over Twitter, citing a material breach. Twitter responded quickly by taking legal action to force Musk to honor his commitment. However, the courts now want Twitter to reveal their site's bot data. And while Twitter is focused on bringing out the heavy artillery, Elon is out tweeting memes of himself and outwardly mocking the Twitter board on their own platform.  The big question remains, who will win if the saga breaks into an all-out legal war? Will Elon eventually buy Twitter now that their stocks are on a downward trend?  Listen in as Roland and Ryan discuss key takeaways and learnings from the recent Elon Musk-Twitter Saga!
