3 Key Points:

  1. Create authentic relationships.
  2. Rent capital equipment at 10% of the purchase price.
  3. Don’t shy away from businesses with large, up-front capital expenses—they payoff is there if you’re patient.

  • 06:22 – Costs involved in the business—very capital intensive
  • 06:39 – Profit margins for 1-off events are roughly 70 to 80% but that does not account for capital expenses
