A Podcast for People looking to Scale, Acquire or Exit a Business!

If you are looking to maximize the value of your business acquisition or sale - the M&A Unplugged Podcast was designed with you in mind. On each episode of M&A Unplugged, I will interview business buyers, sellers and their advisors and you will hear firsthand accounts of their transaction experience. You will gain valuable insights and actionable takeaways so you can maximize the value of your business acquisition or sale!

As the owner and managing partner of Sun Acquisitions, a Mergers and Acquisitions firm headquartered in Chicago, I have been personally involved in over 300 business for sale transactions across a broad range of industries. I have also had the opportunity to write many articles and papers for our own website, as well as contribute content for Entrepreneur.com, Smart Business and Crain's Chicago Business. In late 2019, I will be releasing my first book titled - 'The 10 Blindspots in M&A Transactions'.
