Do you own, or part own, a business? 

If so, you may have given some thought to exiting at some point in the future.  Perhaps, with your partner or family, you’ve planned what you’ll do with the time and money a successful exit could give you?

You may already be financially secure, or you may be relying on a successful exit to fund your retirement plans.  Whether you need the money or not, the business you’ve built probably represents a significant proportion of your personal net worth – typically around 70%. 

If it was in cash, you’d be pretty careful what you did with it. 

If it was invested in a pension fund, you’d probably take a keen interest in its performance and value. 

As it’s tied up in your business, it’s easy to assume it’ll provide the amount you want when you want it… which it probably can, but wouldn’t it make sense to be on the safe side with so much at stake?

Most business owners only exit a business once in their careers, so understandably have relatively limited knowledge of exit strategy and planning, the facts, statistics, opportunities, options available and potential pitfalls. 

Recent research by a leading “Big 4” accountancy practice indicates most former business owners wished they’d planned more for it.

Whaley Bridge Dam

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 - 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?

Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I love my cars - the car in the picture is Marilyn, a 1964 Healey 3000 I used to own with a friend. I find cars can be very useful from an information gathering perspective…
