About this episode
In 2017, Amman Ahmed founded MusicForPets, which launched the YouTube channels “RelaxMyDog” and “RelaxMyCat.” These channels aim to alleviate pets’ anxiety, whether due to stress or their owners’ absence.
Under Ahmed’s leadership, the channels amassed over 2 million subscribers and generated a 7-figure profit, largely because of effective SEO. As the business saw a surge in paid monthly website subscribers, it garnered the interest of California-based hip-hop label, Create Music Group, which extended a lucrative 8-figure offer that Ahmed couldn’t turn down. In this episode, you’ll learn how to:
- Harness the power of SEO to scale your business.
- Increase your YouTube channel audience with Ahmed’s innovative technique.
- Elevate your brand’s reputation using Ahmed’s personal approach.
- Decide when to abandon professionalism for the sake of authenticity.
- Determine your non-negotiable exit number.
- Lean on a seasoned advisor to sidestep an earn-out.
- Be due-diligence ready, even if selling isn’t on your radar.

Letter of Intent (LOI): A letter of intent (LOI) is a document declaring the preliminary commitment of one party to do business with another. The letter outlines the chief terms of a prospective deal. Commonly used in major business transactions, LOIs are similar in content to term sheets. One major difference between the two, though, is that LOIs are presented in letter formats, while term sheets are listicle in nature.
Earn-out: Earnout or earn-out refers to a pricing structure in mergers and acquisitions where the sellers must “earn” part of the purchase price based on the performance of the business following the acquisition.
Due-Diligence: Due diligence is an investigation, audit, or review performed to confirm facts or details of a matter under consideration. In the financial world, due diligence requires an examination of financial records before entering into a proposed transaction with another party.
