  • There are three parts of a transaction - getting your people all on the same page, getting in sync with those on the other side of the transaction, and all the tasks necessary to close a deal

  • The most successful sellers understand their purpose 


"In the legal business and in the sort of media business, the whole ability to grow, and scale the practice for the media business was based on hiring, cultivating, developing great people. So sort of a very clear strategy and plan but nothing get done on this strategy and plan without great people." —  Scott Becker
