SELL YOUR BUSINESS
Are you planning to sell your business now or 3 years from now or are you curious how to go about it in the future? What you need to know, depends on how soon you want to sell.
If you’re ready to sell soon, you’ll want to understand my proven process for selling your business and protecting your confidentiality while continuing to run your business.
If you’re looking to sell later, you’ll want to understand what drives business value and how to design your business to be more sellable.
I know after coaching hundreds of business owners for almost 20 years and going through 2 exits of my own (one not very successfully), that getting your business (and yourself) ready to sell can be a long and daunting process. If you do it wrong, like it did, it can be an expensive and humiliating learning experience. If you do it right, it will be one of the most enriching and rewarding times in your life. Don’t leave your future to chance. Invest in you and your business, learn to maximize the return on your largest investment, and earn the freedom you deserve.
The Sell Your Business Process
We start with a confidential, no-obligation mutual evaluation meeting. Confidentiality is something we take very seriously and we are diligent in protecting your vital business relationships with customers, employees, suppliers, banks, creditors, and others. In our initial conversation I want to understand your unique situation and motivations and commit to holding all conversations confidential.
Our Sell Your Business Services Include ...
- Working with the attorneys and accountants for both buyer and seller to ensure both parties receive relevant information and are taking action to provide both parties with their expertise.
- Facilitating buyer financing. Deals sometimes fall apart because buyers run into common obstacles when obtaining financing. We are experienced in helping buyers successfully navigate through these issues.
- Coordinating and managing the due diligence process so all parties move through this process in an orderly manner.
- Managing the preparations leading to closing the sale, including the creation of closing statements, proration calculations, working with attorneys to produce final documents in a timely manner, and ensuring all other details (inspections, loan contingencies, etc.) are being addressed.
- Serving as liaison with the buyer’s lender to ensure that the funding is handled professionally and with low risk for all parties.
