Bobby Albert took over the family moving business. Determined to succeed, he transformed his father’s five-person business into a fast growth company, eventually employing 150 people before being approached by a strategic acquirer.

Bobby Albert took over the family moving business when his father died unexpectedly. Determined to succeed, he transformed his father’s five-person business into a fast growth company, eventually employing 150 people before The Albert Group of Companies was approached by a strategic acquirer.

Rather than simply accept their first acquisition offer, Albert patiently negotiated the offer up by more than 100% before he agreed to be taken over.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The difference between an abundance and a scarcity mindset.
  • What distinguishes your company’s core values from the founder’s core values.
  • How to 5X your revenue.
  • The secret to getting discretionary effort from your employees.
  • The difference between a values-driven company that gets results and a results-driven company that has values.
  • Why aspirational values kill a company’s culture.
  • How to more than double your next acquisition offer.

Albert credits getting discretionary effort from his team with his 5X revenue growth in the years leading up to selling his company. Evaluating how much distortionary effort you’re getting from your employees is something you’ll discover when completing Hub & Spoke, one of the 12 modules in The Value Builder System™.
