“Understand the market. Know your goals and desired outcomes before getting into the deal. Have a tight handle on finance up front. Choose advisors with realistic and commercial views of the business environment. Identify the right structure to achieve the goals and stay on track. Avoid doing anything that delays or deviates from the timeline and closing track. Time is money. Try not to change structures without good reason and don’t cut corners. The money you think you will save is likely to be well worth spending to avoid problems down the line either before closing or after.”
“Growing up, I was always interested in airplanes. One day in 1985 I drove past the Flying W airport in Medford Lakes New Jersey and thought to myself: “I can do that.” I did, and I have never looked back.”
