Getting Your Business Ready for Sale

Data shows that only 20-30% of businesses sell. We can increase your odds up front.

Clean up financial documents. Ensure that profit and loss statements, tax returns, and bank statements tell the same story. Discrepancies can cost money or break a deal.

Make the business less about you. A buyer will want to start fresh and grow the business as their own, which will be easier to imagine if you’re not still a major part of business operations and branding during the sale.

Create an owner’s manual. Document every process and procedure for running the business, which will increase a prospective buyer’s ability to envision a smooth transition and successful ownership.

Manage your online reputation. Reach out to loyal customers who will provide positive online reviews. For less favorable posts, respond in positive and respectful ways, which often leads to removal or revised reviews.

There’s much more we can do together to get your business ready for sale. After owning and operating my own business for several years, I sold it for a profit—and have been helping other business owners successfully sell theirs ever since. I would be honored to step through the process with you to help you realize the profitable sale of your business and transition to your next adventure.
