Local business consultant, John Halstvedt, becomes Montana's first franchisee of
Billings, MT – John Halstvedt was looking to supercharge his dealmaking career. A business broker for 22 years, he facilitated sellers and buyers so they could achieve a done deal but he could not, due to conflict of interest, provide buyers with all the guidance they need to access all the businesses for sale, evaluate companies and make a profitable acquisition. This made him search for a better way. He found it when he met a Business Buyer Advocate at "Partner" On-Call Network LLC. He liked what he saw so much, in April 2009, Halstvedt became a member of "Partner" On-Call Network.
Founded in June 2005, "Partner" On-Call Network is a business opportunity that enables people who have been successful in business to become a business consultant using their experience and founder Ted J. Leverette's successful 30 year old business model.
Halstvedt has an impressive background to support his consulting capabilities, which includes a variety of startup businesses and acquisitions in retail, distribution, service and construction. In 1987 John started his M&A experience with a leading national franchise company. John has specialized in pre-sale planning and business improvement for large and small businesses. Broad industry knowledge across various industries, enable him to guide his clients as they grow their company to the next level.
"When I discovered POCN, I recognized it was a great opportunity for me to share my passion for buying and selling businesses and my insights into building and managing companies," says Halstvedt. "I am truly honored to be part of this elite and innovative group where my clients have the benefit of the 500 year collective experience of our Business Buyer Advocates and "Partners" On-Call."
"Partners" On-Call also serve entrepreneurs who want to start a company and sellers of established companies. POCN offers a complete menu of services to facilitate a safe, profitable transaction for all parties involved including business search, due diligence, financing, valuation and post-acquisition service for business buyers.
Working as a Business Buyer Advocate, a "Partner" On-Call introduces clients to profitable businesses quietly for sale by-owner on the "hidden" market. "In my role as a Business Buyer Advocate I'm not a business broker and I don't compete with them," Halstvedt assures his clients.
"POCN Business Buyer Advocates do not represent business sellers but a lot of businesses sell because we connect our buyers to sellers that contact us looking for a buyer. Sellers love our role as a Business Buyer Advocate. We introduce buyers to companies quietly for sale by-owner on the hidden market, which means these sellers avoid paying a sales commission that can be as much as 12% of the purchase price. We also provide street-smart guidance to buyers who want to purchase a business listed for sale by business brokers. Brokers appreciate what we bring to the table, which is educating and guiding buyers so they do not waste the time of brokers and their sellers.
"We discourage buyers from purchasing mediocre businesses," says Halstvedt. "We introduce capable buyers to mature, profitable, fairly priced companies."
According to Ted Leverette, "the safest, fastest, most economical way to grow a small or midsize business is by mergers and acquisitions. It's also the most profitable growth strategy. We strive to be the Go-To Team for Done Deals."
