Selling your business
Some of the questions that I hear from small business owners are:
- What is my business worth?
- I want to sell my business, where do I start?
- How do I sell my business?
- How do I value my business?
- Is valuing my business difficult because it is unique?
- How long will it take to sell my company?
- What does business exit planning involve?
Most business owners lack a business exit strategy plan. Typically, the idea to sell is an impulsive one, rarely planned. A business owner might feel burnt out (not a great indication of a valuable business!), or they may need to deal with sickness relating to themselves or a loved one.
Valuing a business doesn’t have to be complicated. A great place to start is to benchmark the value of your business using the free Value Builder score.
Once completed, the Value Builder report will give you an approximate value of your business based on the data of thousands of businesses in industries like yours. More importantly, you will see your score in eight key areas that drive the value of your business. You’ll get a score out of 100 for each value driver, allowing you to benchmark where your business currently stands, and uncover potential improvements. Get your score here.
We can then review the areas for opportunity and create an action plan to improve your business. Over 60,000 business owners have received their score to date. You can complete the 13 minute questionnaire here.
The Value Builder system is a statistically proven methodology that boosts the value of a company by up to 71%. Our tools and exercises are designed to help business owners grow a more enjoyable business to run or sell.
Access to the system includes 12 unique modules which are designed to help you grow the value of your business.
Abraham Lincoln once famously said, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” Doing the work now is a steady value builder of your business. It ensures you have the best possible chance to sell your small business at a value you will be very happy with!
