y guest today is having a very rough go of it.

We went anonymous, something I hardly ever do. But it was the only way she'd be able to speak as freely as possible and still be raw and real.

And current. Today's guest, like Monte Marcum of a few weeks ago, is in the struggle right now.

So unlike previous war stories you've heard on Acquiring Minds that are more retrospective, this is from the front lines.

Toward the end of today's interview, I ask my guest to score her chances of survival.

65% is the answer.

So, better than half, but she's still living with 1 in 3 chances that her acquisition collapses (her word).

Buckle up for this window into how hard buying & owning a small business can be.
