Imagine... you're sitting in a sun filled beach cafe in Cyprus, taking a client call, that, if it goes your way, will earn you over $120,000 (£94,000) just for making an introduction to someone in your network.
The person you're talking to received an email from you yesterday.
The message offered to raise capital for their business through your network of investors and financiers, who, when the deal is done, pay a commission directly into your bank account.
That's your reward for introducing the business to them. It's just how this industry works.
When the money clears, you draw down $30,000 for your living expenses, put some cash away for your next adventure and invest the rest.
Now that's a nice business, right?
How about taking a call from a client based in Florida while you're on a day-trip around the Greek islands?
The client saw your video post on LinkedIn. The one where you're offering your expertise in helping companies to find, fund and acquire other businesses and arranging the finance too).
She clicked the link, watched the video and liking what she saw, she booked a call with you.
You log in to your fully branded video meeting room where teh whole video agenda, with supporting presentation and even your contract agreement is already set up, ready for the call. You ask some preset questions, and guess what?...
This Ones an Absolute
Your new client is looking to raise a whopping $75m to buy a company.
Land this one and it means a life changing commission check for you.
Get it right and hundreds of thousands of Dollars/Pounds/Euros could be paid to you in commissions.
It seems incredible, I know. But the fact is, the entire industry runs on commissions and 'finders fees'. There's no stepping stone to success,
Bottom line, if you land a whale, you're in the big league. Day 1 or day 1000, it doesn't matter.
It's time to get rolling.
You'll need to provide proof (at no risk or cost to your client) that you can help her do the deal. Don't worry, we call this the 3P's strategy, you'll learn it in 30 minutes during your training.
To get started, you reach out to one of your partners, a Private Equity company who specialise in deals of this size (you can get all these contacts from me).
They ask you for more information about the client, her business and the company she is planning to buy. They send you a list of the information they will require.
Ten days later, your client has dropped all of the information into a Google Docs folder.
Accounts, business information, copies of sales agreements, cash flow forecasts, legals... all the things investors will want to see before lending capital to your client.
Once all the information is in the folder, you give access to the Private Equity company.
Two days later, an email lands in your inbox.
They love the deal!
The next step is back to you;
You set up a three way video. meeting; The client, you and representatives from the private equity company.
You're travelling again of course. Maybe exploring European cities or Island hopping in Thailand.
No worries. No office required.
Ten minutes before showtime, you've popped in to a local cafe to take the Zoom call.
You order a cappuccino and dial in.
No worries about where you'll be to take a call, even one of this size
Because, here's the thing;
"Nobody cares where you are calling in from any more. As long as you have your online meeting room set up and can bring deals to the table (I'll show you how) then you have massive value and your commissions are locked in"
Back to the call.
Once the introductions are made, you sit back and let them talk numbers (more than likely you'll understand almost none of it, but that doesn't matter, finances are their thing, not yours).
By the end of the conversation, the client has agreed to proceed and contracts are exchanged online.
You hand over the client to the Private Equity partners, They take it from there.
Two months later, your client is the owner of a new business. Your Private Equity partners have secured their fees in full and...
They have already sent your commission, straight to your bank account
Same set up as before. You draw down enough to live well, to travel anywhere you want to go. to book your next apartment on AirBnB for a day a week, or even for a year.
The rest you invest safely.
Then, later that day, you take another client call.
Daily income. Sorted.
That's the life of an Executive Nomad.
When you can take calls like these, from anywhere in the world and make that kind of money, you'll never need an office, a boss, or staff. In fact, here's your business check-list :
