It’s easy getting into business, it’s a lot harder getting out again. Sadly many business owners find this out too late.
For over 30 years, I have been helping business owners not only build great businesses, but also get rewarded for their blood, sweat and tears when they exit.
To help my clients, and business owners generally, I released my book, The Smart Business Exit: Getting Rewarded for your Blood, Sweat and Tears in late 2014.
I wrote The Smart Business Exit specifically for business owners, not just their advisers. It’s packed full of useful information, case studies, stories and practical exercises and is one of only a few Australian books on business exits.
It’s also the first Australian business book to highlight the implications of the impending “business exit tsunami” as our baby boomer business owners head towards retirement.
While I thought The Smart Business Exit would help business owners and their advisers, I’ve been astounded by the response to it, not just in Australia but also overseas. And I think it’s because it focuses on the two key reasons why most business owners don’t achieve a good business exit:
1. Not having enough information on how to achieve a good exit.
2. Not starting their business exit early enough.
Since releasing The Smart Business Exit we have been swamped with requests for more information and tools and resources to help business owners achieve better business exits.
So we decided to launch The Smart Business Exit website to provide you and your advisers with easy online access to information about business exits and the practical checklists, tools and programs to help you achieve a successful business exit.
We are building additional business exit resources for you as fast as we can. We also need your feedback, so please contact us to let us know what you need and how we can improve our existing information and resources.
I look forward to helping you on your business journey and ultimate exit. If you would like to connect with us about your business exit, a media inquiry or presentation, you can contact us here.
To more smart business exits!
