Motherhood or Business Ownership

After two meetings today and another phone call last Friday, the prospect of the motherhood and business ownership combination is causing some angst. The main issue seems to be for those women business owners who are currently in business and are either planning to have a family soon or have just had their first. They want to be able to have the combination work but just can’t seem to see how. The thought of having someone else brought in not look after their business is too much to bear. And, the thought of trying to run it full time as…

What Happens When the Heads of Agreement is NOT Signed as Agreed?

So… Wednesday before Easter, the meeting took place and both parties agreed on the terms and conditions to move to Due Diligence. Both agreed that the Heads of Agreement would be signed by the commencement of Easter. Nothing happened!   Both again agreed that it would be done by noon on the following Tuesday. Nothing happened! Now the buyer has come back with new terms and conditions. The seller is thinking “you have got to be joking” (or is that really me…). Who/what am I really dealing with here? It has now got to “have the deposit in the bank…

Consultants, Do You Have a Saleable Asset When You’re Done?

Are you a Consultant? Are you currently working as an independent practitioner? Is this how you see the rest of your working life playing out? Have you given any thought to your Exit Strategy? Have you even wondered whether you could have one? Are you saying to yourself “what have I got to sell anyway?” Time we had a chat… I’m currently working with “colleagues” developing different business models that will enable a fair and equitable option for Consultants. Especially those who understand they have value in what they do, in what they’ve done but have NO idea how to…

Don’t You Love It When the Heads of Agreement is Signed, but…

But, that’s only the start of the next stage of the process… there’s so much more to be revealed to actually get the deal over the line. The next part of Due Diligence. What does that mean exactly? It is verification of all that you’ve told the buyer about your business, as the business owner.  If you’ve told any porkies during the sale process, now is the time they will probably come out. Best not to do so… It can be a time of nervous energy but one to go through nonetheless. Keep it as clean as possible and the…
