Unbelievable Coincidence – Or the Secret!!
I was extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to own my own business. I borrowed over 1.3M from a local bank to own the business, and this was at a time before I knew the ways of the Secret.
We were doing well and growing sales at a 20% pace our first year, but the poor economy did not lend itself favorably to a recreational industry. At the third year I was approached by a competitor to sell my business. My immediate response was NO! Not interested. They kept pursuing and did not take no for an answer.
After consulting with my accountant, it was clear that if I DID decide to have a change of heart, I would have to get a “Goodwill Price” of $1.0M. In addition, they would have to agree to pay additional debts. I was told by both my accountant and attorney that it was not likely the competitor would pay that sum of money.
At this time I started listening to the Audio of The Secret on the way into work every morning. I rented the movie, I read the book. I was serious about applying the Secret to the selling of the business.
Then I got a sign on what I should do… When cleaning my daughters room, I lifted a radio off an old shelf and there it was… ” A ONE MILLION DOLLAR BILL”. Of course it was fake, but I never saw a $1M bill, and I got goosebumps. I decided to push forward with the negotiations.
I put that $1.M bill on my computer at work and looked at it every day. I practiced the Secret in every way possible.
I am happy to say that after much back and forth with the potential buyers, we settled on $1.0 Goodwill and all my other expenses were paid!!!!!!!!!! I was fortunate enough to have a job offer to stay and manage the location. The pay is double what I was paying myself at the old business.
I am a believer!
