It's not that the client was new to business, in fact, they previously owned and operated a very successful business which they sold several years ago.
Like so many entrepreneurs who are very good, even exceptional at doing what they do, a KEY to SUCCESS is knowing when to bring in additional help!
Know your strengths and your areas of weakness. Your customers come to you and use your services, and purchase your products because they know they can count on you to deliver every day. The fact is - writing a business plan just isn't one of those daily things that the owner has on their regular 'to do' list! But it is an area where we can help!
There are many reasons for having a business plan. Start-up is one of them, but for the entrepreneur who's thinking long-term, having a business plan can become even more important. As we've seen over the years, one of the biggest reasons for having a business plan is that it can help you maximize the value you receive when you retire, or move on to your next venture!
Now, here are some great suggestions to help you when it comes time to preparing for your business exit strategy! Thank you to our friends from Sunbelt Business Brokers in Edmonton.
