How to make a few Billion Dollars | Brad Jacobs

I bet you always wanted to know how to make a few billion dollars. I wanted to know too, so I read the book “How to Make a Few Billion Dollars” by Brad Jacobs. Brad joins us to discuss mergers & acquisitions, industry bundling, and the power of a calm mind.

I bet you always wanted to know how to make a few billion dollars.

Well, I wanted to know too, so I read the book “How to Make a Few Billion Dollars by Brad Jacobs.

But, I had questions...

Luckily for us, Brad agreed to come on the show! Brad has founded seven companies―all billion-dollar or multi-billion-dollar corporations―completed approximately 500 M&A transactions, and raised $30 billion of debt and equity capital through private and public offerings, including three IPOs. He began his career at age 23 when he founded Amerex Oil Associates, followed by Hamilton Resources, both privately held. He subsequently created five publicly traded companies―United Waste Systems, United Rentals, XPO, and XPO’s two spin-offs, GXO Logistics and RXO.

I asked my questions, some related to making billions of dollars, but also stuff that had completely nothing to do with it. 

Although...maybe it *does* have something to do with making billions of dollars after all...
