    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.

    Family Businesses: Options for Growth, Succession, and Exit

    $25.00

    Business owners often face the question of what’s next – the decision between keeping and growing the business or transitioning it.  Growing the business has its associated short-term rewards and long-term risks.  Transitioning the business has the complication of whether it is in whole or in part; internally to the family or team; or selling to the nebulous third party.  Business owners often have the feeling that the advice they are receiving is prematurely narrowed.  This session will identify and discuss the pros and cons of the myriad of potential strategies as well as the improvements you should start making now to increase the value of the business.  Learn how to navigate the tributaries and ramifications of your potential choices.

    EPI Webinar – Standalone Practice Launch

    $25.00 $0.00

    The EPI community is home to advisors from across the industry, with different entering disciplines and varied goals for how they will integrate exit planning services into what they do.  For many, they tack on exit planning services to their existing firm and product.  For some, they take the plunge and create standalone firms fully dedicated to provide exit planning and value growth services as their exclusive offering.

    This is no small feat.  It demands a high level of entrepreneurship, leadership, and organization. This month, we are thrilled to have a successful expert who accomplished just that.  And, this session will give you the insights you seek and an open-mic opportunity to ask your questions, share your knowledge, and develop best practices.

    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.
