EARLY STAGE ADVICE
Where Do I Start? How Much Is My Business Worth? What's The Best Way To Sell A Business?
From business valuation related questions to questions about the probability of finding a buyer, we get them all!
We're dedicated to helping business owners like you successfully sell their businesses. Whatever the size of your business, we appreciate that you may have many questions and that you need sound advice. Unfortunately, business brokers have a vested interest in the valuations and /or advice they provide. You need a neutral party. That's where we come in. We provide:
EVERYTHING YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CHOOSING A BROKER
And which nobody will tell you!
If you own a larger business (circa £2 million or over) you'd be better off using professional assistance, but is it really a business broker you need? Or an M&A advisory boutique, a corporate finance firm or other professional? Yes, there are a lot of firms that handle the sale of businesses; it's not just business brokers. A business broker may be completely the wrong "partner" for your business.
And how do you find the right partner to assist in the sale of your business?
Did you know that:
SOME BUSINESSES ARE BETTER SOLD BY OWNERS, NOT BROKERS
What makes a business better suited to sale by owner? And how on earth do I sell my business myself?
It's probably better to not use a broker if your turnover is less than £2m, and definitely better to not use a broker if your turnover is less than £1m.
And we explain why in the ebook that subscribers to our free newsletter get.
But ...is it even possible to sell the business yourself? Where do you start? How do you keep the sale confidential from staff and customers? How do you run an effective sales campaign if you've never sold a business before? How do you ensure you get the right price?
Again, we can help.
Thank You For Visiting My Site
When it comes to selling businesses, all the cards are stacked in favour of acquisitory companies (and brokers) ...and they take full advantage. Let me change that for you.
The first time I sold a business, about 30 years ago, it was a disaster. The next time I used a broker but, like most business owners, I choose the wrong broker! It cost me over £100K. Now, after selling two dozen of my own businesses, and advising in hundreds of other sales, I've assembled what will put you, the seller, in the driving seat.
I've been so successful at helping clients, not just succeed in selling but succeed on their terms, that almost every major UK business magazine has featured my work. Would you like to successfully sell your business like these clients of mine have done)?
Whatever you do, don't speak with a business broker or transfer agent yet! To get the best price & terms, and to do so safely & securely, it's imperative you download my free guide (or get in touch) prior to speaking with any business broker.
