03 Nov Acquiring Minds: Growing EBITDA from $750k to $2m in Under 3 Years | John Hubbard Interview
John Hubbard returns today for a fantastic conversation. John bought a trailer fabrication business in 2021. He has embraced a philosophy of “chasing EBITDA, not revenue” that has served the business well. It is closing in on $2m in EBITDA — a threshold where you’re now large enough to interest private equity. And we talk about whether John should sell in the next couple of years. John spells out the math of what exactly he’d walk away with. It’s a great peek into the psychology of a seller, like someone you might find yourself on the other side of the table from, or the analysis you yourself might need to do if you buy and grow a desirable, saleable business.
