Don't Make a Mistake

75% of Business Owners “Profoundly Regret” their exit within the first year of the sale/transfer.

Regrets come from a lack of preparation & clarity. But, when your business is over 90%+ of your net worth, you can't afford to not prepare.

Why Do Most Owners Regret Their Sales?

Why wouldn't they!?! They've probably never done it. Most business owners are first-time sellers. Meaning they're learning on the job during the biggest transaction of their lives.

Have you sold a business before?

70% of business owners think about their business's worth often, but 98% admit to not knowing the current value.

There's a huge knowledge gap for first-time sellers that leads to mistakes and missed opportunities.

First-time Sellers are at a Massive Disadvantage

Over 50% of owners plan to sell to an unrelated third party they don't currently know. You'll have to find them and sell them without prior knowledge or understanding.

You're making the biggest sale in your business history... and it's a cold lead.

Third-party buyers are often professional buyers (M&A, Investment Banking, Private Equity) and have done hundreds of deals compared to your first or second time.

They know the tricks and methods to maximize the deal for them. Often at your expense.

70% of business owners don't know their number.

You've been busy running your business. Which means you're underprepared for a transaction.

Data shows that business owners think about exiting their businesses often but don't know what it's worth.

More than 70% of business owners don't know what after-tax income they need to support their lifestyle. That's the amount you need to have in the bank after paying taxes, commissions, lawyers, etc., to live off for the rest of your life.

If you don't know this number, you won't be ready or prepared on whether the deal you are getting is good or bad for you.

You have to know that you need $X amount and how much your business is valued at to know when to sell.

Over 50% of owners try to sell on their own.

And the results for DIY business exits don't look good.

Out of all the businesses listed "for sale" in a year, only ~20% actually sell. Meaning that when you fail, you will have wasted over a year to find out, and half of all business owners who attempt to sell on their own fail.

That's a long time to see if what you'll do is going to work. Plus, when business owners skip transaction advice and go to market, they get only ~70-80% of the original asking price.

Baby Boomer Business Owner-1

To make matters worse, 10,000+ baby boomers retire every day. 19% of which own businesses.

Baby Boomers, defined as people born between the years 1946 and 1964, account for approximately 40 percent of small business or franchise owners. Many of these are service-based businesses, restaurants, auto shops, plumbing businesses, local retail stores, hardware repair companies, and more.

However, early indicators show that the logical inheritors of these businesses may not be interested in taking over the reins. This puts the future of many small businesses in question as they flood the market with their businesses. Add recession headlines in the news, and you have a series of key competitive pressures making acquisitions more competitive.
