An understanding of the true Market Value of a business is the first step in deciding what to do with a merger, acquisition, or sale of a business. Whether the goal is to sell today or prepare for the future, knowing value is a key to success.
As important as identifying the next generation chief of your business, is ensuring the business has the infrastructure to stay on track without your constant involvement. Identifying and Designing in the missing elements is an integral part of this facet. Our experience will prove invaluable in ensuring your business passes the test of time.
PERSONAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT
Our system will help you understand where you are and better identify where you want to be. Through specific and targeted questions, your true wants and needs are identified and brought to the table for analysis and planning.
UNEXPECTED DEATH PREPARATION
Our unexpected death preparation program performs all of the necessary steps to transfer your business, but forgoes the actual transfer. The goal is to execute this program while you, the owner, are here to ensure all of the pieces are in place, identified, and accounted for. Your beneficiaries will be glad you planned ahead.
Whether you are Buying or Selling, our experience is paramount to your success. In a consulting role, we are not representing the Buyer or Seller, but are guiding you through your side of the transaction to ensure the time-tested variables are accounted for.
