Description



Welcome to a new episode of The Founder podcast. Come with me on this journey with David Hauser, the visionary behind Grasshopper, as he shares the intricate process of selling a business and transitioning into the realm of investing. Delve into tactical advice on navigating acquisitions, managing deal fatigue, and finding renewed purpose post-sale. Whether you're on the brink of selling your business or venturing into investment, this episode promises invaluable insights and inspiration for your entrepreneurial odyssey.


Highlights: 


"II wanna get to a billion plus dollar exit, not because I care about the dollars. Like my life is not gonna change at all, but it's the scorecard that exists for the value I can deliver to this world”


   


"So the more buttoned-up you are during that process, the less likely it is price will go down and the more likely is price will go up." 


   


 "Having all of our families together, doing that was so meaningful and impactful.“
