What is your business worth right now?

“I really thought it would be worth so much more”. This is what many business owners say when they finally make the decision to sell their business.

What could your business be worth with a few ‘renovations’, to a buyer or even yourself?

You have probably heard of stories where a homeowner decided to sell their home. However, to be able to maximise the value of their home they decided to renovate first. Then once they finished the renovations, they fell in love with their home again and decided not to sell and enjoy it themselves! Should they decide to sell at any time in the future they will be ready to move quickly and sell for a great price.

You should look at your business exactly the same way…

Build to Sell through The Value Builder™ System

You could call it the ‘Ultimate Poker Hand’… …

It means that no matter what business coaching or business mentoring program you choose, we can set aside dedicated time to systematically build the value of your business. You can choose to sell if you get a fantastic offer or, after doing your business Value Builder™ ‘renovations’ you might decide you like the business so much that you prefer to hold on to it and enjoy it! Much like renovating that house, your business will become a lot more enjoyable to own and you can relax knowing your business is far more attractive (and therefore valuable) to a buyer in the future.

How does it all work?

Businesses are usually worth a set multiple of the net profit. The Value Builder™ is a proven system to increase that multiple so that your business becomes worth substantially worth more money simply because it is a more attractive business to a buyer.

Sound Exciting?  It is!

Focusing on doing something that can only benefit you in every way will be exciting, motivating and so worthwhile. To understand how you currently score in the above mentioned 8 areas of your business we invite you to complete the Value Builder™ Score. You will even get an indicative value of your business!

The Value Builder ScoreTM

If you’re like a lot of business owners, you assume your industry and its size will determine the value of your company. While size matters, eight other factors impact the value of your business more than your industry. In fact, after analysing more than 55,000 businesses, The Value Builder System™ has discovered getting these eight factors right can lead to buy offers that are more than twice the industry average. Likewise, we have seen examples of businesses getting less than half the industry average multiple because of a weakness in one or more of these eight areas. To see how your business scores, you can complete the Value Builder questionnaire below and get a report on how you’re doing in each area.

PREScore QuestionnaireTM

As a business owner, you’re ready for almost anything. But recent data shows that even the smartest and successful entrepreneurs struggle with one common problem: the regret of how they handled leaving their business. 12 simple questions can help prepare owners for an Exit With No Regrets.
