The podcast is hosted by Will Smith, an entrepreneur with extensive experience in building and selling online media brands.
Intrigued by the possibility of being on the buyer’s side of the table, Will noticed a gap in the resources available to guide entrepreneurs through the process of business acquisition. Unlike the plethora of blogs and podcasts focused on starting a business, there are significantly fewer resources centered on buying one. Furthermore, there are even fewer public stories about entrepreneurs who have successfully purchased and grown businesses, despite there being numerous such success stories.
“Acquiring Minds” is Will Smith’s endeavor to address this gap, providing a platform to learn from entrepreneurs who have successfully bought businesses. The goal is to make the process more accessible and understandable for both himself and other interested entrepreneurs.
The podcast is a treasure trove for aspiring business buyers, as it shares not only theoretical knowledge but also practical experiences from those who have journeyed down this road. It captures the excitement of exploring possibilities, making a purchase decision, and the subsequent challenges and successes that come with buying a business.
