How to price your business without ruining your business sale…

Let’s just get this out of the way: there is no one-size-fits-all formula for pricing your business. Anyone who tells you that there is, is probably about to ruin your chances of selling your business at its full value in your expected timeframes.

Your advertised price has a huge affect on everything from: Your target market, The perceived return on investment, The availability of finance, Your buyers’ level of trust in…

Growth is NOT an Exit Strategy, if the goal is to Sell your Business…

Yesterday, yet again, I have met with a Business Owner who hired a Business Coach to assist them with their Exit Strategy only to find the business is no better off i.e. no closer to being exit-ready 12 months later and they’ve spent a whole lot of money to boot… Here’s the thing from someone who deals in this space all day, every day – I have yet to meet a potential buyer who asks whether there’s a marketing and sales plan in place before they would consider buying the business, for example, it does not happen. Sure it may be in the…

How to Orchestrate “Extended Leave” from Your Very Own Business…

BIG question for you Business Owner is: how to orchestrate “Extended Leave” from my very own business? That is, to carve out the time for you to enjoy perceived FREEDOM of business ownership and to look forward to going back to well established, thriving business when the time is right. “Why would I want to do that?”, I hear you cry! “I’ve structured my Business so that I can do both.” “I’ll be OK, I can work around this surely.” “How hard can it be, I’ll just take the work with me.” Granted, there seems to be this unwritten, unspoken rule…

Travel can provoke the need to Change…

Travel is one of the best things for clearing your mind and really being able to concentrate on what makes your heart sing. By default, in doing so can also upset the current apple cart, specifically if you realise that what you’re doing is not cutting it, i.e. it’s time for a change. Over the 2015-15 break, I was most fortunate enough to spend time in Antarctica. Talk about getting away from it all! But as a business owner, I also appreciate how tricky it is to be able to arrange time away like this, amongst other things. Whilst I didn’t…

A more traditional way to Start an Online Business…

Seth Godin (acclaimed author and teacher) says to start your first business this way: Begin with the smallest possible project in which someone will pay you money to solve a problem they know they have. Charge less than it’s worth and more than it costs you. Repeat The beauty about doing so with an Online Business is that not only is it simple to do; it can be done far more cheaply than to go a more traditional route. Don’t worry so much about the ‘online’ part. It is only a tool, a mechanism to reach people who need to…
