In this episode, Todd talks with Elliott Holland about how to successfully do due diligence before buying a business.

Elliot is the founder of Guardian Due Diligence to help people save millions when buying businesses. He has 10+ years of experience executing middle market deals as an entrepreneur who was spending his own money for diligence. He is a Harvard Business School trained, seasoned buy-side advisor who spent almost a decade as an independent sponsor/business buyer before starting Guardian. He began his career in the Strategy Practice at Accenture and then moved on to work at Linx Partners, The Watermill Group, Ellsworth Partners, and Spartan Capital Partners. The firms he has worked for have completed billions of dollars in transactions and have successfully bought and scaled over 57 private, primarily owner-operated businesses.
