About this episode


In 2001, Adam Torres started TeamDynamix, a software used by colleges and universities to keep their IT department organized.

Over the next 15 years, Torres and his partner built TeamDynamix up to more than $5 million in annual sales. That’s when Torres, who figured his company was worth 3-5 times revenue, realized selling would give him enough money to live comfortably for the rest of his life.

There are some great lessons for aspiring value builders in the episode. You’ll discover:

  • The surprising thing that happens to software companies at $3 million in sales.
  • What Reps & Warranties are and why they can be so scary for first-time sellers.
  • What a “cap and basket” deal is and how it can limit your downside when selling your business.
  • Why Torres wishes he’d never signed a five-year non-compete.
  • How Nexus laws have the potential to derail your deal.

Torres used a methodology called Net Promoter Score to measure the satisfaction of his customers. It’s an approach recognized by many acquirers, and we’ll measure yours every six months for as long as you’re leveraging The Value Builder System™.
