How Saleable is Your Business in 2014?
How Saleable do you want Your Business 2014?
What are you waiting for? GET YOUR SCORE…
So this week saw me sitting with an Accountant, a Financial Planner and their clients, a Couple, talking all things “Sellability Score”.
Typically, these Small Business Owners had got some of it right and had neglected other parts that may have contributed more to the ongoing positioning of the business. Yet again, they didn’t know what they didn’t know!
Nor had they ever had their business dissected and presented in the way I did it on Wednesday i.e. with my Buyers Goggles on. The questions I asked, the altered slant on the same construct, the “salesmanship” (for use of a better word) around the business they had before them and what its future could hold from an outsiders perspective.
At intervals, I could almost detect renewed excitement that wasn’t there when we first started.
It will be interesting to see what comes of the meeting, once they finish talking to their “A” team and sleep on it over the weekend…

Completed Sellability Score
4 interested parties, with an update of the IM being done and a reenergised campaign. Still waiting on the revised figures. Maybe they don’t look as healthy as first intimated.
BS49 Home Help…
Fact and logic have been presented on both sides. The next step is to sit down and nut it out, especially if the potential Buyer is brave enough to do so. Next week should see this move rather quickly.
BS53 Balloons! and all that goes with them…
Going to touch base with competitors now and see what can be generated.
Such corporate appeal, so untapped.

Assisting colleague by introducing the perfect buyer for his selling client. This should be a no-brainer, as long as the vendor is sensible, which is not always something we can guarantee! And this one is being particularly unhelpful so the Buyer will have to decide what it’s worth to their business to buy it as opposed to what it’s worth… be interesting to see where this ends up.
It’s all happening….
