Are you ready to sell – sooner not later?
When it’s time, it’s time. But first call us to get a copy of our book If They Can Sell Pet Rocks Why Can’t You Sell Your Business (For What You Want)? You’ve built a great business and now it’s time to monetize it while preserving your legacy. It’s not easy, which is why you need an experienced professional to guide you through the process
The Wall Street Journal said only 10% of businesses are prepared to sell for maximum value. You can do better.
Those not prepared will “Likely sell at a discount” (Kiplinger) so let us help you create a large exit for your small business.™
If selling is a few years away now is the time to take action because there’s a demographic change driving the market (a lot of owners getting older) and you want to be ahead of the curve. Not having an exit strategy means you have no strategy. Working hard for an income is great. Working hard for an income, legacy and a large upside is even better.
Also consider growth by acquisition. Larger businesses sell for a higher multiple or earnings and it’s a double benefit – higher income and a higher multiple.
