PODCAST: Talking What Your Business Is Worth with Annemarie Cross of The Ambitious Entrepreneur

Had the absolute pleasure to do the first Facebook Live for the Ambitious Entrepreneur Show, with Annemarie Cross, discussing all things What Is Your Business Worth? A most interesting experience which all went rather smoothly thanks for the impressive skills of Annemarie on the control panel. It was a good solid conversation about what Business Owners should be doing in their business that will actually be of value come exit and/or sale time. Many Business Owners are guilty of doing the activities they like to do and are even good at, as opposed to the ones that add the most value…

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.
