14:16 Jonathan shares who he feels can buy a business successfully and the person you become in the process of buying and selling businesses.
“Many years ago in the 1990s, I had a publishing business. On one particular day, I will never forget it, someone approached me and said that they wanted to buy the business. I never thought that was ever going to be possible that I would sell this company – and I did the deal. I sold the business and I made more money the day I sold that business than I had in the previous two and a half years of owning and running the business. So, to put that another way, I’d worked very, very hard seven days a week for two and a half years and then I sold it and I made more money than all that effort combined. That opened my eyes to a different way of being in business.” – Jonathan Jay
