Tersh talks with the crew over at Card Choice about how many laws he is breaking! Have you ever been pulled over by a police officer for doing a U-turn?! I HAVE! Apparently, it is against the law to perform a U-turn in the ENTIRE city of Columbus, Ohio...and apparently, it's my responsibility to read the law book for Every. Single. City. that I drive through, prior to me driving there... There were no signs stating that I could not perform a U-turn, and I hadn't seen a "No U-turns" sign anywhere in the entire state! I have driven to Columbus 10 or 15 times prior to this since Columbus is where Julie (my beautiful wife) grew up and went to college (Go Bucs!!). Here's a little secret that I need you to keep between the two of us...I had even performed this maneuver on MANY occasions inside the city limits prior to this encounter!! Since this time, I've even watched for these signs throughout the city and have not seen any. I'm rambling and I know that you want me to get to the point, so here it is... Do you know what that friendly officer told me when I professed to him how confused I was for the citation and while repeatedly asking where the hidden camera was located because I just KNEW that I was being PUNKED, he said...and I quote... "Ignorance is no excuse...enjoy the rest of your visit to your mother-in-law's!" lol, thanks!  Well, this is what we are discussing in today's show with the team over at Card Choice. We often use the exact excuse that I gave the friendly officer from Columbus, Ohio when we are talking about breaking laws within our small business, but just as the officer told me, ignorance is no excuse for us breaking any kinds of laws within our business. Before Mary reached out to me about www.cardchoice.com, I was breaking all kinds of laws!! I'm proud to say that we have fixed the ones we talk about in today's episode. Card Choice is more than just some merchant service that spam calls your business.  In today's episode, Tersh, Ray, Steve, and Mary talk about the 6 MUST DO's for you to stay in compliance when it comes to adding a surcharge to your invoice.    Our Deep Dive~ Register with Visa, Master Card, Discover Card, and American Express prior to taking payments.

Tersh talks with Jeffrey Shaw, the author of The Self Employed Life! "But that's in fact, what made me different than all the other photographers is that I actually forgot it was a product. I always said I was selling the intangible you know, the result was photographed and in my case are very large portraits to hang on the wall, major art pieces to hang in a room. So, I mean, the product was a significant result, but I succeeded because it was never the product I was selling, really." -Jeffrey Shaw Jeffrey has been a portrait photographer for 36 years, and he knows more about how to serve clients and how to be self-employed than most.

Tersh talks with Elliot Holland from the Guardian Due Diligence! "So at what point do we bring you into the conversation? Is it like, hey, I'm looking at buying this company, they've given me an NDA or a non-disclosure agreement and I've signed it, here are the numbers? Does this make sense or is it after we've already put it in the offer? Because sometimes, like especially first-time people that are buying...maybe it's like your competitor down the street is going out of business or talking about retiring and you want to acquire them and you've never done this process before. When do we bring you in?" -Tersh Elliott has been a part of tons of HVAC and service business acquisitions, and he knows our industry better than most. This fact alone could be enough for most people to reach out to him for his services, but there is so much more to the story! When we are looking to acquire another small business, we oftentimes take the word of the seller, more than we should, as the truth. Sometimes we use the bank's underwriter to tell us that the numbers do not match up correctly, but who could tell us what the business number's really mean? Elliott Holland of Guardian Due Diligence is just that person! Elliott, founder of Guardian Due Diligence is a business buying expert. He has a Harvard MBA, spent 10 years buying companies for himself and others, and now prevents his clients from losing millions buying bad businesses. He’s the guy to hire to guard your money. https://guardianduediligence.com/ will go into the background of the business that you are looking to purchase so that you will not be left with crazy surprises or a bad taste in your mouth when it comes to business acquisitions. In today's episode, Tersh and Elliot talk about 5 reasons service business owners fail when it comes to purchasing other businesses. They both speak from personal experiences, and Tersh shares, for the first time on the podcast, his regrets of purchasing IceBound in 2018.    Our Deep Dive~ The seller has hundreds or thousands of reasons to lie. The numbers don't lie. There are places these numbers can be hidden, and we share a few of those places... ...you'll have to listen to the rest of the episode for these juicy details!  "I tell people all the time you should not be betting against the seller. Somebody who's been in the business for 10 or 20 years absolutely knows it better than you." -Mr. Holland RESOURCES Reach out to Elliott Holland and his team https://guardianduediligence.com   Schedule a time to talk with Elliott and his team on a Friday zoom call on his website.   Learn more about Tersh by visiting https://serviceemperor.com  Connect with Tersh on social media @tershblissett  Have you ever wondered HOW to target your perfect client?!?

Tersh talks with Zach Psioda from the HVAC Shop Talk Podcast! "I think a few people have talked about this, where you are a good technical person in HVAC and you believe that the HVAC gods will rain down business on you as appreciation for your progress and success, which doesn't happen." Zack is well known around the air conditioning community for his YouTube channels and multiple podcasts pertaining to the skilled trades, mainly the HVAC industry.  He has owned multiple air conditioning businesses in North Carolina over the previous 20 years, and we tap into this experience to ask him to share his largest struggles when it comes to operating a business.  In today's episode, Tersh and Zack talk about 5 reasons small business owners fail soon after beginning their heating and air conditioning business.
