Sell A Business

I believe far more businesses would sell, if the owners only took the time to properly “prepare” themselves and their business for the sale.

Preparation is the “key” to selling a business. Preparation is the key to selling a business for the highest possible and it is the key to you putting more money in YOUR pocket!

If you see the value in preparation and would like to sell your business for the highest possible price, for the best possible Terms and in a way that puts more money in YOUR pocket, I can help you!

“8 Elements” refers to the fact that there are 8 elements of a business that effect value. Financial statements are just one of these 8 elements.

Polishing and optimizing each of these 8 elements equates to:

  • You knowing you will be putting the most amount of money in your pocket  (and not someone else’s).

We will be discussing all 8 elements in detail. We will be discussing what buyers look for as well as what a buyers lender will look for.

Preparation and having the right advisors is the key to successfully selling a business – period.

Why should I buy your course?

The fact is, most business owners trying to sell their business today have done very little, if anything, to properly prepare themselves or their business for sale. They are “winging it” and assuming a buyer “…will see the potential” and its a recipe for disaster. Many of these business owners will never ever sell their business.

With more and more businesses forecast to come on the market for sale, it is essential that your business stands out from the crowd.

I’ve been through the business buying and selling process hundreds of times so I speak from first hand experience when I say selling a business is a complex process. Complexity can be minimized through preparation. Preparation reduces stress. Preparation maximizes your chances of you selling your business.

My course takes you step by step through the process of preparing your business for sale, and it takes you step by step through the process of selling your business.

Buy my course and follow the advice contained within and I promise you several great things will happen:

  • You’ll be learning the most cost effective way of selling a business,
  • You’ll know that the value of your business has been optimized,
  • You’ll know your business is financeable – in the likely event a buyer needs financing in order to buy your business,
  • You’ll learn how to Evaluate a business properly as well as learn the fundamentals to Valuating a business,
  • I’m going to teach you how to identify and avoid very common, very costly, mistakes and how to sell a business in such a way that puts the most money in YOUR pocket!

You’ll be adding tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars to the value of your business AND you’ll be putting the most money in YOUR pocket!
