here are many things about acquisition entrepreneurship that I love.

Here are just 3:

You can buy a business where the seller is tired or checked-out or otherwise resting on their laurels, and you can come in as new owner with all your vigor & vision, and in the happiest of cases, just GROW it like crazy.

Another thing I like:

The niche-y, funky, hiding-in-plain-sight nature of so many of these SMBs that you can buy.

And lastly:

How buying a business sets people on a whole new trajectory — one that is often more exciting, more fulfilling, and more financially rewarding than whatever they were doing before.

Today's guest Jason Cline embodies all 3 of these.

Last year, at age 50, Jason, with wife Lynda by his side, stepped off the corporate path he'd been on for over 20 years to buy a flower distribution business in Florida.

I like distribution businesses, and I like flowers, so I was eager to sink my teeth into this one. Hopefully you're eager to hear it.
