Today's Guest: Carl Allen
Carl Allen is a world-class entrepreneur, investor and corporate dealmaker who has worked on more than 330 transactions worth close to $48 billion.
In his nearly 30-year career, Carl has analyzed thousands of businesses big and small in 17 different countries across nearly every business sector, including technology, pharmaceuticals, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing, aerospace, consumer goods and services, business services, retail, professional services, finance, packaging, and corporate clothing.
Carl first earned his reputation during his 16 years on Wall Street working for Bank of America, Hewlett-Packard, Forrester, and Gartner. There he advised some of the world’s largest corporations on investments, mergers, acquisitions, disposals, and restructuring... and helped hundreds of business owners raise both equity and debt financing.
Until he almost missed the birth of his second son…
That’s when Carl quit the rat race and began brokering (and eventually buying) businesses for himself. Today he is considered one of the world’s premier experts on buying and financing small business acquisitions.
Carl founded Dealmaker Wealth Society (formerly Ninja Acquisitions) because he believes starting a business from scratch is certifiably, BATSH*T CRAZY! He wanted to use his highly specialized skill set to help others realize their dream of self-employment didn’t have to be a long, hard, up-all-night slog with a 96% failure rate in 10-years*.
Today he’s helping thousands of entrepreneurs all over the world buy existing, profitable small businesses that will immediately put money in their pockets. And best of all — he teaches them how to do this without using a dime of their own capital!
