"Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won’t so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.”
My name is Gary Warwick. I am a lifelong entrepreneur. I’ve had the privilege of founding multiple enterprises, but the one that truly set the stage for my current life was a bootstrap start-up in the oilfield supply and recycling sector. My cousin and I embarked on this journey together, starting from our backyard and transforming it into a thriving entity.
What sets this venture apart is that we not only grew it once, but with the dramatic growth, we had the opportunity to sell it twice. The first sale was to a pure Private Equity fund, followed by a second sale to an Industry Strategic company. In both instances, we achieved high multiple returns on investment for all parties involved, including myself, my employees, and the Private Equity firms that had invested in our vision.
Throughout my journey of successfully founding, nurturing, and selling a company on two occasions, I cultivated a specialized skill set essential for founding a business from the ground up and orchestrating its organic and strategic growth, ultimately leading to a successful exit. It was during these experiences that I acquired a wealth of expertise, collaborating closely with the private equity and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) community in the intricate processes of preparing, presenting, and selling businesses to meet investment objectives.
My journey eventually led me to the M&A world, where I was in a direct experience-sharing coaching role with an esteemed investment bank. It was during this time that I recognized a pressing need for a more effective approach for entrepreneurs and business owners to engage in the process of understanding and building value for the eventual exit of their businesses, a journey we all embark upon at some point.
This realization resulted in creating a program I call "Next Life." Its mission is to empower entrepreneurs and business owners with the essential tools, expertise, and resources necessary to enhance the value of both their businesses and their lives.
Through this program, you'll embark on a transformative journey that includes developing strategic plans with clear objectives, gaining valuable education, and receiving practical advice aimed at building value for both you and your company. This, in turn, enables a successful exit strategy and a seamless transition to the next phase of your life for which I am now living.
At the heart of this program lies a transformative self-discovery process inspired by the real-life experiences of successful owners and M&A professionals who have pursued success and fulfillment on their own terms. It's about crafting a pathway to your "Next Life" that ensures not only financial success but also a profound sense of purpose and satisfaction.
