Today, Erik is joined by John Gilmore, a multi-unit, multi-brand franchisee.
John got his start with Cutco, where he honed his skills in sales and learned how to run a successful business.
John and Erik discuss how to get into a business using strategic partnerships--even if you have little or no money to put into the business. John talks about how he partnered with the pair's mutual friend, Justin Donald, and went from being a sweat equity partner to having a great exit and acquiring other businesses.
This episode is super valuable for anyone who is an aspiring business owner--particularly those who would like to partner with an investor.
