New Podcast: How This Former US Army Infantry Officer Transitioned Into Acquisition Entrepreneurship

An interview with Bill Haig

Today’s Sponsor

Hello SMB Deal Hunters!

I’m excited to share a new interview with Bill Haig.

Bill is a former US Army infantry officer who transitioned into acquisition entrepreneurship.

He acquired Starfit Studios, an independent gym in Northern Virginia, which he has grown to 3 locations (now in the process of opening up a 4th!).

Today’s issue is sponsored by Rejigg, a new platform that features exclusive off-market SMB deals.


Want me to help you source on and off-market deals, mentor you through closing your first acquisition, and introduce you to investors to fund your deal?


In the interview with Bill, we discuss:

  • How a bad SBA lender almost killed his deal

  • Bill’s perspective on independent vs franchise gyms

  • What KPIs to look for when buying gyms and fitness studios

  • How Bill has managed to transition himself into an absentee role in the business

  • Major decisions that led to the growth of the business into multiple locations

And more!


Hunting for Off-Market SMB Deals?

I recently discovered a new platform called Rejigg that features off market SMB companies that are doing $500k-$10M in revenue.

They have an in-house team doing outreach everyday, finding owners who are excited to meet with buyers.

Their team adds 7-10 new proprietary deals every week (and because these deals are off-market, they aren’t listed on competitive marketplaces like Bizbuysell).

Here are two interesting deals I found today that speak to the quality of the platform:

1) A big data consulting and implementation services business with $2.1M in EBITDA

2) A towing company in Florida with $500k in EBITDA

No wonder searchers who join Rejigg often have a dozen meetings with owners in their first month!


Invest with me in cash-flowing SMB deals. I’m bringing on a select few investors from this community into businesses I’m buying and investing in.
