Meet Andrew Pohl:
How would you describe what a business broker does?
We serve as a hybrid between a matchmaker and a Sherpa. Beyond making the appropriate connections between buyers and sellers, we provide assistance in navigating the often complex process of transitioning a business between owners.
What’s been your favourite experience in the industry?
I really enjoy following up with former buyers and finding out that they’re pleased beyond measure with their purchase. Beyond providing a living, a business purchase can change the trajectory of the lives of entire families, and it’s a lot of fun to see exactly that happen!
Who inspires you?
The brave entrepreneurial individuals who often take the path of most resistance, and work tirelessly to pursue their dreams of being their own boss, and doing something that they truly love.
What’s a defining moment in your life?
Getting married. My wife and I just celebrated our 10th anniversary, and it makes me realize what a joy it is to be part of a loving and symbiotic partnership.
What’s an important piece of advice you give to business owners?
Be prepared to work exceptionally hard (especially in the beginning), surround yourself with good people, and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.
Do you have a favourite quote?
“In the business world, the rearview mirror is always clearer than the windshield.”
~ Warren Buffet
