Today we were joined on the show by business owner Joe Butler of Prescription Fitness and Butler Wellness Group. Joe was a coaching client of MVP for almost a decade. During the show today Joe shared some of the key moments in his growth from one location when we met him to 7 locations today. It was anything but a straight path!

One of the most overlooked opportunities for growth in the small business world is that of acquiring other companies. This could mean buying out competitors or perhaps adding new products or services to your current offerings. It could also be a way of expanding your geography or finding some good new customers or team members. There are many benefits of growing through acquisition which we discuss during the show today.
One of the reasons we started this podcast was to help dispel many of the myths we’ve seen in the small business world. One of those chief myths is the idea that if “you’re not growing you’re dying.” This has become so popular in the small business world that folks seem to think it must be true. Not so fast my friend.
Today we were joined on the show by business owner and former MVP business coaching client Terry Walkerly. Terry is the owner of Filta Environmental NEO, a leading provider of cooking oil micro filtration services to restaurants and other food establishments. Over his career Terry has owned several business including ones he’s both started as well as purchased. Although he barely made it through high school, Terry describes himself as a lifelong learner who has read just about every business book out there. Combining that with the school of hard knocks and Terry has a lot of wisdom and insights to share.
