Bill D’Alessandro (@BillDA), Michael Girdley (@girdley), and Jake Wakely (@jakelywakely), who owns a moving business in Texas talk about his war story of acquiring a home services business in Vail, Colorado. Jake has an excellent rationale for choosing this business which is his getaway to spend more time in Vail. He also shares how he could figure things out as the deal was under LOI, an SBA bank, and financing fell apart two separate times within a week of closing.
