    Justin / Joe / Ace –

    Great podcast!

    Interesting discussion about “risk” comparing an online vs offline business purchase.

    I had to rewind (as I got lost for a moment when Ace was ripping off loss %’s) but then realized what he was saying was that given that most online business have a 10X Gross Profit Margin % over a typical offline business, as the offline business carries more fixed expenses that the online business doesn’t… then the offline business acquisition (for a $500k size) is going to be hit harder (GP wise) if sales slip out of the gate… therefore… this makes an offline acquisition actually more risky than an online purchase from an investment perspective.

    Interesting point.

    Enjoyed the podcast!

    Thanks,

    -Jim
