“My favourite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time”

Steve Jobs

Successfully exiting your business is widely regarded as one of the few gateways to the foundations of real personal freedom:

Time and Money

Space and time to do what you want, live the lifestyle you want - and the money to finance it.

If you are like most business owners, a successful exit is fundamental to your future life plans – and no less than you deserve after your journey to get there. You probably have a very clear vision of what a successful exit will mean to you and your family.

Preparing yourself and your business for exit is probably unlike anything you’ve done in your business career – a very different set of rules apply. In our view, anything you do to improve your business should be done with exit in mind, regardless of time scales, whether that exit is a succession plan to the next generation of your family or an MD, an MBO or a sale.

The Whaley Bridge dam is just over 3 miles away as the crow flies – I can often see it on my morning dog walks.  Strangely, if you own a business, it has relevance.

All ships leak - and all businesses too

All ships leak.  To a greater or lesser degree, they all let in water.  Businesses are the same.  Except they don’t leak water, they leak value. Value leaks out of businesses through the gaps.  Through ineffective people, through holes in systems and pro

If your business was a car... what would it be, and why?
