    The Four Questions Every Business Owner Should Clearly Know the Answers To

    $25.00

    Driving income or driving value is the choice that every business owner intentionally or unintentionally makes – whether they plan on keeping and growing the business or transitioning it to their family or a third party.  These four questions offer process and clarity: Where are you now? Where are you going? How will you get there? and What’s next?  Join Melisa and Steve as they reveal examples of the realities, ins and outs, and radical results from these simple questions.  Leave with a plan, process, and how to accomplish it.

    The Five Stages of Business – Resulting in Business Success, Stability, and/or Transition

    $25.00

    A certified valuation uses more than just EBIDTA and a multiple to derive value. For most businesses moving though the five stages of business is the greatest factor for increasing enterprise value and stability. The evolution of who is responsible for separate core functions, decreasing risk, increasing standardization of processes, and reporting is key. Melisa and Shelley will review EBIDTA/multiple/valuation and then share a method to facilitate team alignment and empowerment, refine the directions of the company, and lay the foundation to create efficient, targeted implementation plans for the business that increase the value and stability.

  • The Gathering 2018 – Family Businesses: Attractiveness, Readiness, and Valuation – Factors that Business Owners Often Don’t Know

    $25.00

    Simply recasting financials to find a new EBITDA and estimating a factor does not make a true valuation – even when combined with a calculation of fixed assets and goodwill. Misunderstanding enterprise value, a lifestyle business, and/or discrete and non-discrete intangible assets often cause businesses to lose value. Learn the nuances of Assessments/Valuations and how to transition from a Wisdom-driven Business to a Value-driven Business. Value-driven Businesses increase your options by systematizing the magic you’ve applied to creating success up to this point. They command stability for internal transitions, as well as the highest market value if you decide to sell.
