Welcome to another great episode of the podcast. I while back I started doing some entrepreneur podcast and since then we have gotten tons of great feedback saying you like this type of content. I hope to bring you a lot more and really show you how to become your own boss and hunt as much as you want, or at least more than you currently do. Today I am Joined by Codie Sanchez who is a total boss and someone I definitely look up to on the entrepreneur side. Codie plays at a level I can only aspire to get to and in this podcast we dive into something she is very much an expert in, and that is acquisitions. It is common to think, “what business could I start” when thinking about becoming your own boss. I know that was always my thought. Today Codie shares with us some reasons to consider buying an existing business. There are are definitely compelling reasons to go this route and as someone who has started multiple companies from scratch I would highly consider this option now days. This podcast is packed with great tidbits to consider and hopefully sparks some of your own ideas. I highly, highly recommend joining Codie’s newsletter Contrarian Thinking. Also if you are interested in buying a business check out her course How to Buy a Business. Codie is giving our audience a 25% off that course if you use the “TRO” code.

I have been running the Argali Game bags for going on 3 years now and love them. Argali game bags are some of the best lightweight reusable bags out there. Like I said I am on my third year and a pile of pack-outs now with zero issues or tears in any of them. Argali also makes an amazing backcountry knife that is ridiculously light at 1.8 ounces and feels like a real knife. The Argali Carbon knife is made of s35VN steel which is considered super steel, this allows you to have a knife that can process an entire animal without having to resharpen your knife in the field. If you want to cut weight and upgrade your kill kit check out Argali. Use the TRO code and save yourself 10% or entire order. SHOP NOW! Hunting Season is here and if you don’t have On X Hunt App downloaded on your phone, you are living under a rock. On X Maps is the number one hunt mapping system out there. One of the cool features I use constantly throughout season is sharing waypoints and areas with hunting buddies. From glassing locations to camp pins this feature gets used often. I will even use the area shape tool to highlight areas then send that to say hey this hillside should have a good buck or bull on it. On X recently launched their new 3D mapping which is still in beta and only on the desktop but this allows you to really see glassing points hillsides and overall terrain features in an area. Good luck out there this year and remember to download any maps you may need before hitting the hills and you will have access to all of your saved e-scouting plans.
