Randy Long grew up in a family of 6 kids. His dad was a pastor and his mom took care of the kids. His father pastored small churches and so Randy’s family had very little. That encouraged all of the family to work from early ages to buy what they needed, help out the household, and give back to the Lord. Randy worked for many self-employed people and this gave him a great respect for business owners and made him also want to become self-employed. So Randy went into business to provide services to business owners and their families. Randy has also practiced law but his primary focus today is running a business consulting company called Long Business Advisors, where Randy and his team coach business owners, provide BraveHeart Planning, and manage the sale of businesses for those who do not desire to transition their company to the next generation.

Randy had to split in a business and it drove away a huge portion of their clients -- and Randy tells the whole story here.
"Business owners need to be continuous learners -- and the need to encourage continuous learning."
"Specialists make more money than generalists."
I wish I had invested in systems that I could plug other professionals into so that they could see things the way I saw them.
Understand and discover the unique abilities of yourself and your team -- and exploit those abilities.
An individual would be self-managed, self-motivated, want to make the entire team successful, and think like an owner.
