Strategy

Growing a business and creating value starts by developing a compelling and clear strategy that will lead to achieving the vision and objectives set for the business.

Alignment

To leverage the potential of a compelling strategy, everyone in the organization needs to be aligned with and focused on the strategy.

Execution

Having the best strategy and everyone aligned with it is not enough; you need to execute relentlessly. This requires an unwavering focus combined with measuring and communicating progress.

Accountability

We all need to be held accountable in order to achieve our plans. That accountability can come in the form of a supervisor (if we have one), a coach, or an advisory board.

Valuation

Exit Strategy and

Succession Planning

Approximately half of all business owners want to exit or transition their business in the next five years. The problem is that only two out of 10 businesses that go on the market will sell. Of those that do sell, many will receive a lower price due to poor or nontransferable intangible assets.

If your plan is to do a family transition instead of selling outside, you are not out of the woods. Family businesses only have a 30% success rate through the second generation, and it goes down to 12% with the third generation.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Having an exit or succession strategy and plan will help you address the issues needed to increase the attractiveness of your business and the value to a potential buyer. It will also help you understand and implement the process that leads to success in a family transition. We are determined to make sure that what matters the most to you also matters deeply to the successors taking the helm to guide your company into its future.

Air-tight Master Plan

A successful exit strategy requires that you have a Master Plan that aligns your personal, financial, and business goals.

Would you know how your self-identity, philanthropic philosophies, and spiritual values play a part in this process? What about your family and friends?

Are you familiar with how to assess your risk profile, income requirements, and long-term health as you consider your plan?

Have you considered how the direction of the business, the salability and ongoing viability of the business, the predictability of the business’s income stream, and your staff, systems, and management succession factor in?

Let us show you how to cover all these bases and more so that your
Master Plan is just that: masterful!
