When I was a kid I dreamed of building a business that would make me $100,000+ a year. I may sound like an old man but I’m 40 and that is the truth. I never once thought “oh i’d like to have a business worth x amount.” All of my business aspirations were based on making x amount of profit per year. Besides the whole point of being in business is to make a profit right?
There is good news in this. Most people are chasing valuations and investor money which leaves a huge opportunity for those that are interested in building real businesses that make a profit.
