“Think big, own small.”

Why build a business from the ground up when you can always buy one?

In a Forbes article, it says that acquiring an established brand is like operating a well-oiled machine—an easier endeavor to leverage growth compared to starting from scratch.

In this episode with Codie Sanchez, the founder and CEO of Contrarian Thinking we discuss how buying up small businesses led her to expand her portfolio and increase her wealth. Codie is a familiar face on social media, particularly in YouTube where she has amassed over 2.5+ million subscribers.

Codie says her experience during the pandemic cemented her belief to always defend small businesses which were the first ones to be shut down – that and cashflow. She has mastered acquisition ownership to a tee. She is the co-founder of Unconventional Acquisitions, focused on small business acquisitions in the micro-PE space with an emphasis on roll-ups.

In this episode she lays out the challenges and the triumphs in acquiring small businesses. But most importantly, she has shared the secrets as an owner of 2 dozen companies.
