So I get a contact from a business broker via LinkedIn. OK, let's hear what he has to say. So in my normal course of business whenever I hear someone selling me something it will inevitably all boil down to ONE question from me. Just ONE! ONE! Pretty simple right?
But guess what, the weak will do anything to avoid answering just the simple one question. A simple question. One I asked 3 or 4 times w/o an answer. JUST ONE!
"First tell me what you know about domains and their value." Simple right?? Not difficult. Even f you knew ZILCH you would think an intelligent broker that even had 1/2 a brain and was not lazy and incompetent would do the SIMPLE research and give me an intelligent response.
But what did the WEAK BUSINESS BROKER say after me repeatedly asking the same simple question......"Most potential sellers that we have worked with in the past have had a very inflated value - financial buyers pay multiples of earnings." That's the weakest garbage that brokers use all day every day! It is a flashing neon forehead sign that says AVOID!!! If that's their lead, RUN!
He is devaluing my assets without knowing a damn thing about them!? He is useless and foolish! My only regret as we talk "Multiples", is that I only have 2 middle fingers 2 show him. He deserves a much better multiple and response!
Let me respond to this weak, time-wasting broker...."Most potential brokers that we have worked with in the past have had a very deflated value of themselves and what they are trying to sell - dumb buyers led by weak brokers paying multiples of earnings based on no skill to see the future. They can't see past their calculator. Nobody needs a broker for a WEAK SALE! We all have that capability at birth!"
