With multiple startups under our belt, we know the ups and downs, the dangers, and the excitement you experience. Let's explore where you want to end up as you start your business so you'll get there more quickly. We'll even share our own exit strategy with you so you'll see how much clarity that brings to the choices you'll make and the path you'll take. We have the map and can share it with you to stay on track and make the jump successfully.
You're a one-man or woman band! You're doing the marketing, the sales, the accounting, sweeping the floor and it never stops, 24/7/365. You feel like you're on a hamster wheel. And you're making huge decisions by yourself: Do I hire or outsource accounting...or do it myself in the evenings? , when is it cheaper to do it yourself?
You've launched the biz and it's running and making money...but things aren't always so smooth. Now you've got different problems: Payroll, billing, accounts receivable, hiring and firing...things you may not be good at but still have to get done. And money leaks out...sometimes more than you know. Let's plug the leaks to maximize your profits now instead of later. Ask about our Business Physical Program to set those benchmarks and grow.
Now the business is up and running. YOu can even take a few weeks off every now and then. This is where most owners take their foot off the gas and coast...sometimes for years. Remember, retirement is INCOME-DEPENDANT, not age-dependent. If you can hit your magic number (remember how we helped you set that goal back in Phase 1?) 5 or 10 years early, now you have options. You can choose when and how you sell.
If you're ready to sell now but have not taken all the above steps, think about it. What would you pay for a business that depended on the owner or a few key employees, to survive? If it was leaking potential profits, wasn't in the upper quartile of its industry from a numbers perspective, didn't have documented systems and procedures, would that drive the offer up...or seriously in the wrong direction. Timing is everything. It takes 2 to 5 years to set this up, so let's have a conversation and see how much progress you've already made...and where you need to work next.
Wherever you are in your business lifecycle, a conversation would not hurt and might help. Click here to schedule a 30-minute discovery call. At the very least, we'll make friends. At the very best, maybe we can add a zero or two to your bank account in the next few years.
