Have You Started Thinking About a Comfortable After-Business Lifestyle?
Think about how to Sell your Business.
Famous song titles offer a catchy way to highlight messages in our articles and this week we feature that great classic from Fleetwood Mac to deliver our message:
“Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here,
It’ll be here better than before,
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone….”
Did you know that 50% of business owners who use a Coaching Programme, are doing it specifically to plan how to maximise the market attractiveness and value of their business for re-sale?
Implementing a strategic plan that focuses on the 7 drivers of business value can deliver an organisation that is not dependent upon an owner operator. This, to a buyer, is worth much more than a high profit margin with the owner still personally controlling a major part of the operation.
Planning to Sell a Business Takes Time
It is very difficult to get any business ready to sell and complete the whole process within a year. It is much better to take a few years to implement planned stages and leave the final year just for the sales process, with all its legal and contractual negotiations.
As the song says: “Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow” but it needs much more than just thinking about.
“If you wake up and don’t want to smile
If it takes just a little while
Open your eyes and look at the day
You’ll see things in a different way….”
Maximising the value of a business for sale requires different actions to the normal day to day operation. Having an experienced Business Coach, who knows how all this works, will add tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of pounds to your final payment.
Laurence Duncan, ActionCOACH for Loughborough, Leicester and Nottingham; regularly identifies wiser ways of doing things, focusing you on the importance of value generation areas, pointing out possible pitfalls, and helping you galvanise your team into taking the actions they would otherwise quite happily put off for another year.
Laurence says: “Maximising the attractiveness of your business will maximise the attractiveness of your life after disposal of the business and this is a really good reason to start your Coaching Programme sooner rather than later.”
While 2017 is in its early stages, you have a whole year in front of you so why not find out exactly how a Coaching Programme can make the process easier and less stressful than going it alone and how the Programme will pay for itself many times over.
You can book an introductory two-hour consultation with Laurence for FREE before the end of February 2017 to find out whether it would benefit you and your after-business lifestyle dreams. In the words of the song….
“Ooh, don’t you look back
Ooh, don’t you look back…”
