Another day, another conversation with a Consultant who, when starting to explore Exit Strategy options, realises what they thought will be Saleable is not. Well, not in its current form anyway.
So, once the wind had been knocked out of their sails, they began to ponder what the hell to do next?
The first reaction was generally anger. Annoyed that what they thought they’d bought into with the whole start-your-own-business thing was in fact a crock!
A crock in so far as, having been sold the live-the-dream business model, to only be reminded that this model is really just a different version of a job.
Doing a diagnostic like the “Sellability Score” certainly helps to map out what’s current and raises the questions re what to do next.
But in order for this process to be most effective, time is of the essence. If you’re a Consultant and you want an Asset to sell once you’re done with it… Start Planning and Restructuring NOW.
