Business exit planning and increasing business value

Your primary objective should be to build up the asset value of your business to a level that allows you to realise your personal, family, wealth and lifestyle goals when you sell/exit

Are you planning for the future?

Your eye should be on the exit from day one.

In the well-known book 'Seven Habits of Highly Effective People', the author Stephen Covey's number two (2) Habit is 'Begin with the end in Mind'. This means to have a clear indication of your exit strategy.

It is important to plan for this day right now without delay.

Most people will paint the house, weed the garden and fix the broken gutter before they put their house up for sale.

Business owners should undertake similar steps when planning and preparing to sell their Business.

Properly executed, the value grows exponentially.

I conduct a 90 minute workshop with business owners to go through this in more detail.

It can be conducted:-

  • online through zoom,
  • at my office,    or
  • at your business.

What benefits will I get ?

  • Think about and plan for the future;
  • Mitigate any risks;

One of the world’s best know business authors Michael Gerber – the E-Myth Revisited –  states the importance of exit planning –

HAVING AN EXIT STRATEGY IS THE BALL GAME FOR ANY ENTREPRENEUR … the idea is simply to build, grow and sell – whether sells means pass on to family, merge, sell to employees or trade sale, there has to be a strategy!”
