Josh Tolley – Acquisition Entrepreneur and Author of Acquisitional Wealth: The Fastest, Most Proven Way to Create Life-Changing Prosperity

If you want to buy a business, take whatever you have and multiply that by
10. That’s the size of business that you can afford. Divide that number by
three and that’s typically is what that business is going to kick off to owner
benefit. If you have $100,000, that’s $1,000,000 business that will typically
kick back $300 or $350,000 dollars a year.

Barbara B. Richter – Founder of DIYBook and In Ink Ghostwriting

DIYBook grew out of a need I found with the ghost-writing side. People
would call and say, ‘I want a book,’ but they could not afford a quality
ghost-writing service. I would turn away people with great stories, and
that’s where DIYBook was born, for people with great stories but limited budgets.
