A business broker who is ALSO a business coach can offer unique assistance to buyers and sellers! My 35+ years experience as a business broker, appraiser and coach makes a big difference. Check me out here or at www.Linkedin/in/glencooper.

What Is A Business Broker / Business Coach?

A business broker helps small business owners sell their businesses. This is a mostly-confidential business involving the valuation and marketing of firms, run by owner-operators, with typical sales transaction sizes under $10 million. To be a successful business broker requires a unique combination of analytical, financial and sales skills.

A business coach helps business owners build valuable businesses. Most business coaches, however, come from – and work for – large corporations as “executive coaches.” Only a few know about – or can coach – the owner-operators of small businesses. A great coach knows how to ask probing questions, listen to the answers and help a client gain clarity about any issue - and move forward!

The combined skills of a successful business broker and coach – the analytical, financial, sales, listening and questioning abilities – can provide powerful counsel and/or coaching to a business owner AND to a porspective business buyer.

I sell small businesses and coach small business owners and small business buyers. I am unique among my peers. I am a credentialed and highly successful business broker of long standing, as well a creative and innovative business and professional coach, now practicing independently in Denver, Colorado.

I was a Certified Business Intermediary (CBI) (2006-2013) and a Fellow of the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA)(2008-2013). I was also a Certified Business Appraiser (CBA) (1984-2011) and Business Valuator Accredited for Litigation (BVAL) (1999-2011) from the Institute of Business Appraisers, as well as a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) (1985-1993) of the National Association of Realtors, a designation for expertise in commercial and investment real estate. I maintained all those designations when I ran a large business brokerage firm in New England. I sold that firm in 2010, moved back to my original home state of Colorado. I now practice as a sole practitioner by choice. I also quit paying all of those dues for all of those designations to simplify my life and better balance my checkbook! :-}

I have now simplified my practice too - it's now just business brokerage and coaching. I am active in the Colorado Chapter of the International Coach Federation (ICF) and the Colorado Association of Business Intermediaries (CABI). My website is www/GlenCooperColorado.com.

I'd like to think that I am a well-connected individual broker who offers to put my systems, teamwork and track record to work for you!.

Systems: Business coaching and selling the way it should be done!

• Valuation Systems - Helping clients establish and defend business values – both enterprise market values and a business owner’s core values – are my specialties.
• Confidentiality Systems - Preserving confidentiality is an everyday procedure for me. I know how to camouflage the identity of businesses and business owners and guard proprietary information.
• Marketing & Resourcing Systems - A coordinated and on-going campaign to sell businesses, coupled with a wide variety of coaching assignments, benefits all of my clients.
• Screening & Qualifying Systems - Screening and qualifying buyer prospects is what I do for business seller clients. Screening and qualifying new ideas and trends is what I do for coaching clients.
• Negotiation & Closing Systems - Focused agenda-setting grows and sells businesses. It also addresses frustrations by clarifying alternative choices. I am clear about my role as a broker and/or coach.

Teamwork: Business coaching and selling the way you want it done!

• Cooperation & Collaboration - I harness the "wisdom of the crowd" for my clients. I encourage teamwork with other business intermediaries and professionals.
• Knowledge - I am well connected to world-wide experts and resources. Check me out on LinkedIn. I'm at www.LinkedIn.com/in/glencooper.
