Richard Parker, Executive Vice President
Born in Canada in 1961, and based in Florida since 1996, Mr. Parker has been a business “junkie” since childhood, owning his first business at 12 and selling it profitably at 13 (this remains his favorite business story).
His fascination with getting others involved in businesses started at this young age when he recruited seven neighborhood children as paper carriers and then successfully approached the local Sunday paper with the idea of letting them solicit home delivery where there was none previously, and so a career was born.
The businesses have changed in the past 20 plus years but the excitement remains.
“It has taken a lot of time, effort, and some painful experiences to develop the tried and true formulas that immediately identify a good business. More important is recognizing what particular business is ideal for the individual. Good businesses run by the wrong people quickly turn sour and that’s why so much of our material is devoted to helping each client buy the right business for them.”
“I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoy what I do for a living. I am very lucky, I can’t wait to start each work day. That’s the beauty of owning a good business; it overtakes you in a way that is so incredible it’s nearly impossible to explain to someone who has never experienced it. That is exactly what we will help you achieve. You will soon understand my enthusiasm after you begin to follow our program and we get to know each other. I am always available to help you. I promise that I will do everything in my power to put you into the business of your dreams.”
“I have had some wonderful successes and a few dismal failures. It’s amazing what these failures can teach you if you are responsible and mature enough to look at them as learning experiences. From these situations, both good and bad, I have been able to assemble a program that completely eliminates the frustrations and setbacks that all others go through in order to learn the crucial skills they need to find and buy a good business at a great price.”
“Since most people who begin to look to buy a business have never bought one before nearly everything that they will encounter is new. Buying a business is a serious decision, therefore, understanding the process and knowing what to do, is unquestionably, the key to success.”
“The most rewarding aspect of my career is that I am involved in a business that is able to help so many people literally around the world. The greatest satisfaction I get is when one of our clients tells us how their lives have been changed by the techniques they learned through our training programs. If you are serious about being self-employed then learn the right way to do it.
