From Playing it Safe to Living the Dream

From an early age, Mike knew he would be an entrepreneur. When he was fifteen, he bought his family dinner for the first time at the Burger King where he worked, and he knew that what he wanted more than anything was to provide for his family and transform the trajectory of his family tree forever.

In 2000, twenty-one year old Mike saw the internet emerging and knew there would be opportunities to unlock. He teamed up with his brother and launched an affiliate marketing agency. The company was a success, and Mike could’ve easily chosen to continue chugging along and live a decently comfortable life. But settling for “comfortable” wasn’t the goal.

I Have Something Here

Mike found himself creating significant profits for his clients with his marketing expertise. So why not apply that knowledge to a brand of his own, and see financial gains for himself? The idea seemed simple enough, he just needed to clear some space. Enter: the Quiet Light team.

Wait…DON’T Sell My Business?

After receiving a valuation on his agency from Quiet Light, Mike got some surprising advice: “Don’t sell your business,” which is a surprising turn of events for folks who work on commission. But they recognized that selling at that time would result in a lot of money left on the table for Mike. This interaction instilled a confidence in Mike that when it was time to buy or sell a business, this was the team to work with.

A Key for Every Lock

Mike discovered an online water sports business for sale with a solid foundation but no marketing strategy. Confident he could apply his skills to scale the business significantly in 5 years, Mike acquired the company. What he didn’t expect was to hit his goal in just 2 years. He realized this was the beginning of a repeatable formula.

Encore! Again, Encore!

Selling the water sports business resulted in an unbelievable eight-figure exit. Mike was hooked. He has since researched and purchased multiple brands that lack in what he excels at. By aligning his strengths with other businesses’ weaknesses, Mike has successfully executed multiple seven- and eight-figure deals, all while living the island paradise dream (literally).

Mike capitalized on his superpower and developed a repeatable strategy. Are you next?

I had spent 30 years of my life working toward security. And to receive those funds, was a tremendous sense of relief.

Praise for Quiet Light

“You put a lot of faith in your broker. It’s a very significant decision. Working with Quiet Light for the sale of my business was one of life’s great decisions. They packaged it beautifully, found the perfect buyer, and closed the sale at my asking price – all while keeping the hammer down and the communication flowing. For all this they have my gratitude, and the ultimate testimonial: my next sale.”

– John G

“When I was deciding to sell my business, it was like jumping into the deep side of the pool without any swimming experience. My first call with Quiet Light was like being thrown a lifesaver while explaining the entire process. I was originally planning to sell ASAP, but decided to follow their advice to wait a few months and optimize my business value. Sure glad I did, because it ended up increasing my valuation by a third."

- LV

“Before choosing a website broker, I made a list of all the things that were important to me in a broker. Most of the other choices had 4 or 5 of the 10 things that were important to me. Quiet Light had 14 out of the 10. Why 14? They brought to my attentions things that I would never even have thought of, and he executed flawlessly in finding me a buyer. I’ve been unable to find another broker at their level to this day, and I feel like they are truly the best in the business.”

Get more offers and better deal terms with Quiet Light

Your online business is not our inventory to sell. It’s the product of your hard work, risk, and investment. Why would you settle for anything less than an incredible exit on your terms?

Working with Quiet Light's entrepreneur-led team puts you in the driver seat. Our refined process helps you receive multiple qualified offers and exit quickly to the buyer you choose, for the price and terms you designate.

Here's a quick look at our industry-leading process.


Your Initial Valuation Call

Whether you plan to sell now or in the future, it's important to get a sense of what your greatest asset is worth and how to set yourself up for maximum acquisition value when you’re ready.

During your call, you and your Quiet Light advisor will establish a broad value range for your business. This range is based on the most up-to-date multiples for your niche, plus factors like your team, run rate, and inventory.


Letter of Engagement

Once we have established your goals and agree on a path to a successful exit, we will sign a letter of engagement. Our engagement is only 90 days, so you will not be locked into any long-term contracts you can't get out of.

In fact, if we fail to meet your expectations you can end the engagement at any time.


Your Detailed Client Interview

Your client interview is tailored to your business. Our goal is to be as thorough as possible and ask you every question that a potential buyer might ask you, so you’re prepared with an accurate answer.

We’ll go through all the details of your business together, because nothing else matters if the numbers aren’t correct.

Finally, we’ll explore your business’ growth opportunities. Buyers love clear paths to growth — especially those that are already under way.


Public Listing

Using the information you’ve given us and our extensive experience evaluating online businesses, we’ll create a clear, enticing package that highlights your business’ strengths and admits its weaknesses.

Then, we will schedule your listing to go to market and manage the flow of inquiries. Our listings typically get dozens (if not hundreds) of inquiries and multiple qualified offers.


Finding the Right Buyer

Once all the offers come in, we will help you sort through them and find the right fit for your goals. Things we help you consider are sales price/multiple, cash at closing, and earnout terms.

When your buyer is ready to seal the deal, we’ll set you up with all the documents you need to plan a smooth, snag-free closing.

Eighty-five percent of Quiet Light listings sell in 90 days or less, so you won’t live in limbo for long.
