“This proves anyone can get their business acquired if you have the hustle, hard work, and numbers to back it up.” – Sarah Boyd

Anyone can start a business.

But how many entrepreneurs build something that ends up getting acquired? When your business model is fruitful enough to solicit the attention of another company, you have built something special. Acquisition does not mean selling out. Rather, it is a stamp of quality on the business model that the entrepreneur has created.

Today, on the $mart Women Invest podcast, we are joined by Sarah Boyd. Sarah Boyd is the Founder and creative force behind SIMPLY, a collective with one goal in mind: connecting. Dubbed the “dot connector”, Sarah started her career in Fashion PR, the industry she called her own for 10 years. In 2012, she decided to channel her expert industry know-how, her extensive list of contacts and her countless amiable relationships into pursuing the most challenging endeavor of her career, starting her own business.

Tune in to today’s episode to hear Sarah’s insights around building her company, and why she believes anybody can build an enterprise to the point of acquisition.

“I’m very persistent and not scared to take a leap and jump.” – Sarah Boyd

Points to Keep In Mind

  • The highest growth on social media comes to the accounts who are most authentic
  • Collaborate with like-minded individuals to grow your audience
  • Credentials and schooling doesn’t matter when compared to hustle and hard work
  • Seek acquisition of your company if you know you have maxed out what you can do on your own
  • Be honest in emails and people will respond
