I recently called a green industry businessman about a business opportunity – a business for sale in a complementary segment of the green industry. It wasn’t an obviously perfect fit, but I thought there was a chance he might be interested enough to take a look. After hearing that I was calling about a potential acquisition, he almost dismissed it without even hearing about the opportunity. As we talked, his tone changed a bit and we agreed to meet after the holidays to discuss this and other opportunities down the road.
During the conversation, he reflected a bit and said, “You know, these are the times that great companies are made in.”
I think he’s right. —Ron Edmonds
