So — you want to become a dealmaker.
You could learn how all on your own. The school of hard knocks is a good one…
But fast-tracking your knowledge is better.
A while back, Carl and I discussed the three key elements of owning a business with some of our students.
And one particular question – represented below – popped up more than once…
I have listened to others on YouTube who are involved in the LBO [leveraged buyout] world. I wanted to buy one of Carl’s training options, but I have no LBO experience and have never been a CFO or CEO of an organization.
My question is… can someone who wants to learn how to do the steps and take action get involved in such a business with no connections to CFOs, accountants, etc.?
— James B.
That’s a great question.
The answer is a resounding YES. You can get involved today — right now, even — without an existing level of support or knowledge.
If you don’t have an experienced team backing you at this very moment, simply start at the beginning and assemble your resources step-by-step.
First things first, find an accountant — a CPA you trust with whom you can build a relationship. Research and interview several in your area before selecting one.
Relationships are the foundation of the business world, so it’s important to build ones that will last. And practice will make perfect.
Same process goes for an attorney… a local banker… and so forth.
As you build your team of trusted advisers, you will also gain valuable experience and insight — putting you on the path to becoming a master negotiator.
It’s why I recommend learning from the best. Because you may also gain valuable mentorship in the process.
Carl is that kind of guy. Not only has he done billions of deals in his lifetime, he actively enjoys the spoils of ownership without having to work IN the businesses he owns.
His Dealmaker CEO training covers everything you need to know to do the same.
Here are some of the key things you’ll walk away with:
- Learn how to instill the “Dealmaker Mindset”
- Decide which types of businesses you are going to target
- Launch your “Deal Origination Machine” so you can generate qualified seller leads on autopilot
- Have killer meetings with sellers, analyze financials and fairly value any business
- Make your first offer to buy a small business
- Eight different ways to finance deals using none of your own money
- How to get qualified professionals to perform due diligence for you (without paying them any money up front)
- How to create your “Offer Sequence” and negotiate the terms of the deal
- Essential steps for closing any deal
- And what to do in the first 100 days of owning your new business to make sure it runs smoothly without you.
Carl’s Dealmaker CEO training will give you the tools you need to put together the team and resources required to do just what you’re afraid of not knowing how to do.
Leveraging concepts just like Carl’s, I’ve built my own team of advisers, and have successfully executed deals of my own.
James — you’ve got this.
The same goes for everyone else. Be the business owner you were meant to be.

P.S. If you’re struggling with the whole “I don’t have any experience running a business” thing… I want you to know it’s okay to be afraid. But your lack of qualifications, prior experience or a track record of proven results are not the things that are holding you back.
All you need to do is follow a proven formula for success… do the work… and be willing to build the team to help you make your vision a reality. But you’ll never be a Dealmaker CEO if you aren’t out there making deals!
